Spring cleaning happens to always be an ongoing project for me. When you think about it, wouldn’t you want your home to be in top shape in the event of any type of emergency disaster? What if there was a power outage how would you be able to use your washer or vacuum? And what if there was a water main that broke that left you without water to do the dishes or bathe? In a normal situation they can fix the breaks but what if an emergency arose and you came to find out that it won’t be fixed till who knows and for how long? It is important to get into the habit of having all your daily chores and duties at home done in a timely manner and to be consistent if not daily at least weekly. Make lists and organize things ahead of any storm this way you will be able to tackle cleaning duties while you still have time and the resources to do so. Simultaneously, you will be able to find loopholes in your preps and your organizing skills and what needs to be managed, changed, redone, and or eliminated. Spring cleaning should be a priority all year round not just at Spring time.
The same applies to your Spring gardening, keeping your garden trimmed and cleaned helps to eliminate unwanted bugs, rodents, and weeds. This will also help when you start your edible garden, as well as upkeeping garden chores will lessen the work for you when it comes to cleaning and keeping everything tidy as you allow yourself to have a consistent routine and system in the garden. Don’t let the jungle take hold of your yard or garden leaving you with more work to do when you could be concentrating on other things if you had only upkept things to begin with.
And last but not least if you have done all these things ahead of time you will be more than able to spring into action if and when an emergency does arise leaving ten less things to worry about. So execute a Spring cleaning plan that will trickle down to your Spring garden chores allowing you to spring into action at a moments notice if need be. Happy Spring!
