It’s that time of year! The weather is warming up, and we’re beginning to have a bit more energy to organize our home (and let’s be honest, our lives). If you’re feeling inspired to make some changes, check out this ultimate spring cleaning list. Out with the old, in with the new!
This is the obvious one when we think of spring cleaning. Organization starts with figuring out what you actually have in your space and getting rid of what you don’t need. Tackle your closet and figure out which clothes you actually wear, and which ones no longer fit you correctly or align with your current style. You can sell the items, give them to a friend, or donate them to a local charity.
Have the same mentality when approaching the other spaces in your house. Do you randomly have three blenders in your kitchen? You really only need one, MAYBE two. Do you have an insane amount of DVDs that are just collecting dust? Let them go (there’s Netflix anyway!).
2. Recycle & Upcycle
Don’t send items to a landfill that can be recycled or upcycled. For our customers who live near our Savvy Rest Natural Bedroom locations, we offer to take their old mattress of their hands when setting up their new Savvy Rest organic mattress. Their old mattress is then broken down and recycled because we believe this is the most environmentally friendly and responsible thing to do. So, always remember to recycle as much as possible!
Upcycling is also a wonderful thing. Use old glass jars to hold your makeup brushes, or your old toothbrush to clean those hard-to-reach corners in your shower (also: consider switching to a bamboo toothbrush instead of plastic). Reusing a product is always more eco-friendly than simply throwing it away. Obviously, we can’t keep everything, but with a bit of creativity, you’ll find ways to upcycle and save money while saving the planet.
3. Clean Up Your Sleep
We spend a third of our lives sleeping, so it’s important that our mattress and bedding products are safe and healthy. Replace your mattress with one of our organic ones. Not only will you be investing in a product that is made in the United States using organic and natural materials, but you’ll be more comfortable too! Our mattresses are customizable, so they’re designed with your specific needs in mind. Mix and match layers of latex to create the perfect mattress for you! We even offer split configurations, so your partner’s side can differ from yours—everyone wins!
Not ready to get rid of your current mattress but think it’s time to replace your pillows? We offer several organic pillows, most of which are customizable.
