This will make the spring and summer months much easier for you. This is a very simple task but can make a big difference. It is also always a good idea to go through your clothes and pick a few items that you no longer wear to donate to charity.
Change Your Decor
Change up a few small aspects of the decor in your apartment to add some excitement for spring. Switch the color of your bed sheets, add new throw pillows, or switch out your accent rugs. Making small changes to your color scheme depending on the season can be very satisfying. It is also a great idea to add some new houseplants or to get in the habit of buying flowers for your apartment every few weeks. Houseplants will add healthy oxygen to your apartment in addition to a pleasant smell.
Go Through Your Garage

You will be surprised by how pleasing organizing the garage can be!
