Spring Cleaning for a Fresh Start

By Kat La Mantia | March 16 2023 | AdultsGeneralAllBlog

Though it may not seem like it, the end of winter is indeed approaching. The clocks have sprung forward, and the promise of warm weather is tantalizingly close, which means only one thing. It’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning.

Spring is the perfect time to refresh your home and cleanse your space. Doing a traditional deep clean is great, but decluttering, organizing, or redecorating are all accessible and equally positive ways to revitalize your home. As Marie Kondo says, your space and the things in it should spark joy. Take the time to cultivate more joy in your life this season. Whether you’re going all in or taking things one step at a time, we have books to meet you where you are and make spring cleaning fun and restorative.
