Raise your hand if you dread general cleaning! Don't let the mere thought of cleaning your space stress you out! You can make household chores fun and exciting with the right battle plan. Look forward to your next cleaning and organizing schedule with these ideas: 

Think of redecorating

The task of cleaning your room can be overwhelming! If you look at it though, it can be a good opportunity to fix things or experiment with a new look or style! Once you've decluttered your space, consider working with a new layout or mixing and matching your decor. You can even borrow another piece from another room to serve as an accent piece in the space that you're organizing. 

Add color

Color does a fantastic way of livening up a space. To create a happier atmosphere at home, use storage bins and boxes in colorful shades! Consider items in yellow, green, and red. These pieces can serve not just as storage solutions but as accents, too!

Upcycle old items

Cleaning can sometimes lead you to unexpected treasures at home! These gems include an unused jewelry box that you can repurpose or old furniture that you can upcycle and use as decor. Not only will you maximize what you already have, you get to have fun and exercise your creativity too! Old skirts can be turned into chic pillowcases and plant holders; pieces of wood can be used to create shelves and other storage must-haves. 

Think of a reward

We all love looking forward to a reward after a hard task. Some of us prefer a delicious meal, a couple of drinks, or a new book! Don't forget to give yourself a pat on the back for cleaning and organizing your space. Enjoy a day at the spa or get that calligraphy book you've been eyeing for months! You may even invest in a new mattress or furniture once you've finished your tasks.
