Spring Cleaning Tips: Because Organizing Doesn’t Have to Be Boring

The joy of spring!  For some, it’s about singing birds and buds on trees.  For others, it’s being able to kick their stir-crazy kids outside to play off some energy.  For many, it’s about cleaning.  If you have a love for being organized, you’re going to be excited about the latest Design Tips from our showhome decorators.  This month they are giving you decorative DIY ideas for organizing your life during and after the big spring clean!

For this project, you’ll need three or four medium-sized decorative buckets.  Because the buckets will be on display, choose ones that either complement the style of your home or pick up on an accent colour that you’ve used throughout.

1. Label your buckets by room, i.e. kitchen, bathroom, laundry, etc.  When it comes to labels, your options are countless.  A craft store is probably your best bet, but a lot of Pinterest users also offer free printable labels online.

2. Once the labels are in place, fill each bucket with the cleaning supplies that are needed for the room indicated on the label.  How genius is that?  So, the next time you need to clean the bathroom, you just grab the cute bathroom bucket instead of rifling through all the random cleaning supplies that are jammed under the sink.

Where you choose to display your buckets is up to you.  A shelf in the laundry room works great, as does the mudroom or walk-in pantry.  Decorative buckets or bins can also be used to organize your front entryway, or you can label grab-and-go buckets for outdoor toys.  You can even give each member of your family their own bucket for scarves, mitts and hats to avoid a messy and inconvenient pile.

Let the spring cleaning begin, you’re going to feel great about your new stylish organizing solutions!
