'Tis the season to get cleaning!

By Rachel Wermager

The days are getting longer, the temperatures are finally starting to climb, and spring cleaning is officially upon us. Thanks to Marie Kondo, we're well-equipped with organizing tips and tricks to ensure this time of year sparks joy. But as we all know, it's not always that easy.

There are many emotional stages that occur during spring cleaning: the dread of finding the time to do it, the adrenaline of getting into the groove of it, and finally a (brief) sigh of relief when it's all done. One thing that we can all relate to, however, is the hilarious struggles that come with spring cleaning.

Simply finding spare time to get all your spring cleaning done can be overwhelming, especially with a busy schedule. It can seem like an impossible feat to fit every necessary cleaning task into your precious free time.

Once you've carved out some time, you have to get over the next hurdle: actually doing the cleaning. Motivation can be hard to come by—at this point, we're wishing Marie Kondo would come knock on our door for a whole-house deep-clean.

Once you've built up the motivation to get the job done, there's nothing that can stand in the way of you and a pristine home. Just keep thinking about how amazing and accomplished you'll feel when it's all over!

Turning on some music is essential. And if you ask us, this absolutely counts as your workout for the day. You know you've hit your stride when spring cleaning almost becomes fun.

Beware: after your personal dance party has wrapped up, you're bound to hit a wall. The cleaning feels like it's never-ending at this point, and all you want is for it to be over. But don't rest for too long—you're almost to the home stretch!

Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and just keep cleaning. You've come way too far to give up now. And just think, you won't have to do a deep-clean like this for another year if you play your cards right.

You've done it—the house is spotless and you made it to the finish line with only a few minor breakdowns along the way. Now, if everyone could just not touch a single thing in your home; you've worked far too hard for such perfection!
