PRIME STORAGE IS A SCOOP PARTNER

Oh that first sign of spring! You open the front door to hear the birds chirping and your heart skips a beat. AND if you’re anything like me, you’ve just hit your limit. Your limit of winter in upstate New York, that is. DONE with the thirty something weather, and ready to throw those windows open and begin a little spring cleaning.

Now in an effort to openly and honestly portray my home life, I’m far from any Martha Stewart. And with four young boys, my house is usually a disaster. But I’ll be honest yet again: I love the cathartic nature of a solid scrub sesh. Having an excuse to turn off the screens, zone out and clean my worries away. I get some of my best thinking done in these moments of solitude. Something that I don’t have much of anymore. And at the same time, something that I have to be very intentional to schedule INTO my life. In whatever form I can.

A DOABLE CHECKLIST

Some of the “spring cleaning” checklists that arrive in my feed are, well… a bit too much for my limited time and attention. Like a bedroom closet? That’s an all-day affair in this home. So I’ve compiled the small jobs that make a big difference in THIS house. With many things that I can ask the boys for help with, even for just a few minutes. Those things that poke at me throughout the year, yet I never take the time to address. I even put it into a fun little printable so that you can work alongside me, dedicating a little time each day to your own excuse for solitude.

Note that this is NOT a calendar. If it’s a weekday and you don’t have much time? Then choose a smaller task. Weekend and you have a few hours? Choose a more involved project. And since it’s that darn perfection that usually stands in the way of us starting most things, I encourage it to be used with my motto… PROGRESS OVER PERFECTION.

Together, we’ll check off this list, square by square. And before we know it, our Saratoga summer of guests and entertaining will have arrived.

Too much clutter standing in the way of the project, and not quite ready to part with those belongings? Prime Storage offers month-to-month storage leases and a variety of storage sizes to meet your needs. Check out the options at a Prime Storage Facility near you!
