1. Start small
Make a habit of touching things once. For example, rather than throwing your food wrapper on your desk thinking, "I'll get it later," throw it immediately in the garbage. Making small, neat changes like this will make spring cleaning seem less daunting.
2. Switch to reusable supplies
Disinfect your sponges, use only reusable containers, etc. with all of this reusing and recycling, there won't be as much trash and you're making the earth happy too!
3. Clear out the clothes
You know all those cute fall/winter outfits that you wore once (maybe)? Get them out! Start packing up your lesser-worn clothing little by little so there's no so much to do all at once.
4. Make your bed first thing in the morning
A tidy bed can change the entire feeling of the room. No one wants to come home at the end of a long day and see a disheveled mess of a bed rather than be able to hop right in. Spring cleaning will be a breeze with a tip top sleeping place.
5. Get rid of your old schoolwork
If you're like me, you just hopped from one semester to the next and now you're stuck with tons and tons of useless work. Throw it out! Even one notebook a day with de-clutter and refresh your space.
Of course spring cleaning can be stressful- especially for the lazy college student. But by incorporating these tips into everyday life, hopefully the task will seem so much less intimidating.
