Are you starting to get ‘spring fever’ and the desire to tidy up your space is nagging at you? I know it has for me! When spring begins I find myself re-organizing my drawers and cabinets and purging through papers. I even find this to be fun! Okay – you may not perceive this as a ‘fun’ activity, but it can be.
Due to being in the biz of helping people get organized for thirty-two years, I know that most don’t put organizing at the top of their list of ‘go to’ activities.

So, would you like some super helpful and easy tips to Spring Clean your way to happiness? Try these six ideas to getting some much-needed ‘breathing room’ and free yourself of unnecessary clutter.
