Spring-Cleaning and Organization Items You Need Now

Alright, it’s time to talk about organization items you need now. Is it just me or is winter dragging on and on? I know it’s only the middle of March, but I’m already looking forward to the promises of spring. The sun is starting to peek out a bit longer and the days are getting warmer. For reference, I currently live in Norway, although I’m no stranger to cold weather being from Pennsylvania.

This time of year also has me thinking about spring cleaning and setting a clean slate for the upcoming sunny and warm months. Last year I focused on organizing my bathroom and closet.

Here I will provide you with 10 suggestions for spring cleaning and organizing all parts of your life.


Home – Organization Items You Need

  1. Microfiber cleaning cloths – great for an envrionmentally friendly option to reuse

2. Scrub brush set – Have every size and type of brush you need to get your home sparkling clean!

Amazing Amazon Deals Going on Right Now!

I think one of my next posts is going to be about how you can become an Amazon affiliate. I have mixed feelings about it because I definitely don’t want to be contributing to making Jeff Bezos richer. However, if you’re looking for some extra cash to save or get out of debt, then signing up gets you a piece of the money pie. Because let’s face it, Amazon isn’t going anywhere and people are going to buy from it anyway. So that’s my way of saying that these are all affiliate links – meaning if you choose to click on them and order something, it’s possible I can earn a small commission on eligible items. And I encourage you to find ways to do the same!

Even if you don’t purchase an item on the link and you stay and order on Amazon, I can earn a small amount from that as well. And if you are interested in learning more about it, drop a comment below and I’ll write a post on how to join!
