For most Minnesotans, spring is typically a highly anticipated season. With this winter’s heavy snowfalls and cold temps, many of us have been awaiting this spring with more impatience than usual.
According to the calendar, it’s here. It won’t be long now until the snow disappears and the grass begins to green, and before you know it, summer will be under way.
One of my favorite to-dos at this time of year is nothing other than a good, thorough spring cleaning. I love to go through all the closets and cupboards and clean. But even more than that, I like to PURGE.
The cleaning alone doesn’t fulfill my spring rituals. I need to find things to get rid of during that annual cleaning. It’s freeing to simplify and get rid of things you don’t really need and “lighten the load,” so-to-speak.
When doing your cleaning, don’t forget about some of those easily overlooked places, like your refrigerator (check out Page 6), or your makeup drawer (Page 16). I’m sure you can find some things in there to throw out!
After the cleaning is done, find some fun ways to freshen up your look and your home. We’ve got lots of ideas in this edition of Chicz to get you started.
Nature’s alarm clock is ringing (check out Page 31), so get going! Happy spring!
