6 Things You Should Spring Clean That Are Not Your Home

Spring cleaning has become part of many of our yearly routines—and for a good reason! Decluttering, deep cleaning, and refreshing our homes allow us to create a clean slate for the rest of the year. 


But while cleaning out your refrigerator and finally organizing your closet are necessary and important tasks, there are a few things outside of your home that could use a little attention as well. 


Your Devices: We use our phones, tablets, and laptops every day, so they are bound to need a good physical and digital scrubbing every once in a while. Wipe down the screens with a screen cleaner, wash your cases, and organize your apps to keep them squeaky clean.  

Your Email/Texts: While you’re at it, take the time to go through your emails or texts and delete the ones you no longer need. You can also save important messages to folders on your device for future reference.  

Your Car: Stop by a local car wash and spring clean your car so it is ready for all your morning commutes and those future summer road trips. Vacuum the rugs and seats, wipe down the dashboard, and scrub the outside until it sparkles.

Your Wallet/Purse: From old movie tickets to gum wrappers and receipts, we all have clutter taking up valuable space in our wallets and purses. Take some time to declutter your most useful accessory so that you can always find exactly what you need.

Your Budget: If your 2022 resolution was to save more money, it may be time to sit down and revaluate your budget! Take stock of how much you are spending and saving and reorganize your budget to ensure that it is working best for you.

Your Mail: While throwing away junk mail is almost second nature to us these days, did you know that there are ways to stop junk mail from being delivered to your mailbox? The Federal Trade Commission has a few tips to help you get started.
