...first and foremost tip, literally ineverything, is planning. So tip number one act like a project manager andplan ahead. What I mean is to write down every single test there you'regoing to tackle during this spring cleaning time. I suggest you start with defining cleaningzones in your house and, under each category, writing the related tasks. Immediately after putting down all of them, you'll experience the sense of relief andit helps you tremendously to manage your limited time, which is your valuableas set. Think of this spring cleaning as a project. With its precisedefinition, a project is a temporary endeavor to deliver a unique product, serviceor result. Project is time sensitive and resource based, so you have allthe individuals at home as your resources. All you need to do is planningcorrectly to deliver a clean house at the...

...end of the project with the leastamount of effort in time for each one of the members in the family.Okay, when we are done with this, obvious steps time to communicate with allof our family members and begin to delegate each task to the proper person. And, of course, each one should pick the tasks that are feasibleand safe for them to do. And no one knows better than any mommyabout which task should be assigned to each one. But let your children andhusband have a voice, let them pick the ones that are the favorite andallow them to show up as they wish. Don't impose your opinion on them.Just try, I to cooperate and develop this spirit of corporation in yourfamily and simply plan the tasks together as a family, based on the timethat you consider for this specific project.

It's a win win relationship for us and our little kiddos. Sokeep up the good work, Mama. And now let's recap the benefits ofthe skint one another time.

...the most important of all, youdon't need to handle all this spring cleaning thing alone. And now you're allset. Everyone knows what to do, when to do and all you needto do now is just action. So we go over the next tip thatI have for you, which aims to add some spices that this process ofsomehow tiring house cleaning tasks, and it's simply having fun during this whole processof cleaning time. You know, sprinkleaning does not have to be at Chore. When you make sprinkleaning fun, it tends to make the time pass morequickly and turns your cleaning activities into something you no longer dread having to do. Some of the ways to make sprinklaning...

...fun are to blast your favorite tunes, I mean to play music, or create a friendly competition between you andthe other members of your family. For example, we can set a timerand then compete with each other and doing the tasks as fast as possible,or it can set a goal and figure out the fun reward for each completedtask, like promising to have a dinner out when all the tasks are done. Why not? Your limit is the sky if you want to add somespices to the tedious sprinkleaning thing, and no one knows better than than youwhich specific condiment can make this experience tastier. So go ahead and be creative.And now for the third tip. Applying minimalism and environmentalism to prolong theeffect of our spring cleaning as far as...

...reaching to the future of our children. With spring cleaning around the corner, many of us are thinking of thebig spring cleaning. So while we're taking everything out of the cupboards, dustand clean, why not take the opportunity to get rid of the unnecessary clutter? Surely you've heard of minimalism, a current trend that encourages living solely withessentials to make the most of the prison moment. It's becoming more and morepopular, whether for environmental or financial reasons or simply to improve the quality oflife. But what is minimalism? The basic principle of Nimalism is to livein simplicity. Rest a short, that doesn't mean giving everything away and livingbetween four white walls. The idea behind minimalism is to get rid of theclutter. Either are objects that bring us no pleasure, things that we haveapplicates of them, as well as toys...

...that are children could very well dowithout. Detaching from our material possessions allows us to spend less time tiding up, cleaning, maintaining shopping and thus spend more quality time with our loved ones. Several studies have shown that decluttering the house decreases courtisil levels and therefore stresslevels. I prefer to go over the topic of minimalism in another episode,and in fact I need it to be well mentioned than being faster review,as it is one of the backbones of our mother who told it, inmy opinion. But for now just have a tip with this core value inmind. decluttering is one of the basics of minimalism and one of the firststeps too, as I said before. My specific tip is to consider declutteringyour house in this opportunity of sprink cleaning.

It shouldn't be like just cleaning onething and putting it back on, but to think about how useful itis for you, how much pleasure doesn't bring for you, and if youhave any doubt about the answer to any of the questions, it shows thatit is time to make the right decision about that. Personally, I'm anadvocate for animal or even continuous clutter of all of my belongings, from homeappliances to personal items. This gives me a lot of energy and reduces mymental loads. Making a decision about the tools and belongings that have been unusedfor a long time can boost your energy level, trust me. But wemight have done the decluttering without knowing the minimalism concepts before. What I wantto emphasize more is to do it more environmentally consciously this year. I meanprioritizing environmental considerations in this whole process. So tip number three is decluttering yourhome with reuse, recycle and repurpose in...

...mind. One removing excess clutter fromyour home is one of the key aspects of spring cleaning. It is importantyou do it with reuse, recycle or repurpose in mind. Instead of justtossing guiems you no longer use, figure out a better use for them.Old T shirts can be turned into racks to use then dusting. Use oldclothes and fabrics rather than paper for cleaning supplies. Clothes that are two olderstained to be donated. Sheets, towels or fabrics can all be recycled orreused for cleaning supplies. There's no need to use paper, towels or otherpaper products when you likely have a slew of cleaning supplies. Clamoring to beused or worn out sucks make for great cleaning gloves. Clothes you haven't wornin the past six to twelve months can be donated, sold online or givingaway to those who can put such items...

...to get use. You can evenhave a yard sale to give your old items a chance at a new home, and cracked cops or bowls can be repurposed into garden planters. See,the options are limitless. And now let's summarize what we've been through. Inthis episode. We talked about three specific tips that can facilitate and advanced ourspring cleaning experience this year.
