Free Printable April Decluttering List
April is a month of new beginnings! I feel it is the best month to create spaces that renew not just our own personal spaces but the spaces that greatly impact our families. Our April Decluttering list is going to cover one of the largest spaces in the home. The garage. I know, don’t groan. I am sure it will seem like a tall order to many, but we have the whole month! Hooray! And its Spring! Spring is the time for a change! Clutter can really drag your spirit when it gets to be too much.
What to declutter during Spring?
Spring is the perfect time to declutter gardening supplies, sports, and recreation equipment, and countless other items we stuff into a garage. Decluttering in Spring means better weather! Yes, it can rain on many of the days. (Total bummer but needed to grow flowers!) However, lots of days are sunny and mild! So you don’t freeze your toes off and you don’t sweat all day! It’s the perfect weather for semi-outdoor decluttering!
Why declutter the garage?
Our April decluttering list covers the garage because it is the first area many of us see after work and school!
Let’s ask ourselves some hard questions:
- Do you close the garage door as quickly as possible so the neighbors don’t see your clutter?
- Can you park your car in the garage?
- Can you open the car doors without bumping into items?
- Are the contents of your college dorm in the garage?
- Are you afraid to poke around because you have no idea what is lurking behind the junk?
And the most important question of all!
When you drive up after a long day of work or parenting and open that garage door, does the room bring joy? I mean seriously, the garage is the first impression you and your family have of your home. EVERY SINGLE DAY!
And that is why April is all about the garage.
Here is the April Simplified Decluttering List
- Broken Lawn and Garden Equipment
- Outgrown Sports Items
- Worn Sports Equipment
- Empty Boxes
- Tattered Dated Home Decor
- Excess of Old Rags
- Old Paint and Chemicals ( Dispose of properly)
- Trash ( you would be surprised)
Here is a bonus: The someday I am gonna pile. Yes, we all have these odds and ends lurking in the garage to haunt us. Release these dust magnets from your space! Think about it, will you truly do this or do you have buyer’s remorse and it has been way too long to return it? Don’t let guilt rule your cluttered life. Let it go! ( Yep, I am singing)
