Spring is here! Tips for clearing out the clutter


I don’t know about you, but I am more than ready for spring this year. It might be the first year that I’m actually excited about “spring” cleaning and getting more organized. I’m welcoming a breath of fresh air and taking time to clean out my closets and tuck winter away neatly, where it belongs. Need some motivation and fresh ideas? Follow along for some sweet shortcuts and great products that you can pick up right at your local Family Dollar. Spring cleaning on a budget!

Clearing Out The Clutter

To freshen up your home, working on cutting down on clutter and packing away winter items and clothes is a great place to start. The selection of storage bins is quite large at Family Dollar.  To take ultimate advantage of the space in your home, these flat bins with wheels are amazing to use under beds in small spaces! Whether you need big or small solutions, there is something for all of your needs.


While storing away clothes and other items, keep them fresh by washing them before stowing away. You can also toss in a Fabric Softener Sheet to keep them smelling nice and fresh while they are packed away!


Make Organized Messes

An important part of getting organized and reducing all the clutter is making your space more functional.  With pretty storage bins, you can hide your messes in plain site. These paper bins are sold for only $2 each and really upgrade the look of this bookshelf all while hiding clutter.


For small items that you want to pack away, use small storage bags. For only $1 a box at Family Dollar, it’s a sweet little trick to keep your winter items protected and dust free!


Use these clever little adhesive products to organize your closets in a flash. Family Dollar sells a nice selection of Command brand adhesive hooks to easily organize without much effort. This is a great way to take advantage of your space without cluttering up your home.


Tips for Spring Cleaning 

Once you have de-cluttered your home, it’s time to get to cleaning. I’ve scoped out some awesome products to help get the job done in no time. For freshening up curtains, pillows, throws and other fabric around your home, I love this Febreze fabric freshener in the spring & renewal scent. Can’t think of a better combo for getting that spring feeling going!


Is there a layer of winter on your windows? Let’s get them cleaned up so we can let that fresh air in. This Family Dollar Window & Glass Cleaner can provide a streak-free shine. After all, we want to be able to see the beautiful outdoors when we look out of our windows!? Best of all, you can grab this at an everyday low price!


Allergens a worry in your home? We struggle with them here, so I am loving the Febreze Allergen Reducer products.  Not only does this air freshener smell great, it also can reduce up to 75% off inanimate allergens that can become airborne from soft surfaces according to the package. It comes in a “clean splash” scent.


Another sweet spring cleaning pick are these Extra Strength Ultimate Sponges that work like Mr. Clean’s Magic Eraser products. I love having these on hand for both large and small messes!  My final favorite is the Lysol Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaners, these are perfect for freshening up without having to do to much work. That is a win in my book!
