Spring-Cleaning: Home, Life and Mind

The arrival of Spring means that we can finally welcome back warm sunshine and a medley of perfumed flowers in our gardens, enriching them with life and colour. There’s nothing better than cracking open the windows after a long, cold winter allowing light and fresh air stream into our homes. This is also a great opportunity to de-clutter menial tasks in our life (and our minds too)

We are here to help you adopt fresh optimism this Spring. It’s time to rid your home of clutter and embrace a positive mindset and we’d like to share some spring-cleaning tips for the home, life and mind. So, without further ado, let the spring-cleaning commence!


As they say “tidy home, tidy mind” and there’s nothing like a good spring clean in our homes; getting rid of all the dust, giving the walls a fresh lick of paint and filling our homes with fresh tulips.

Of course, you’ll also need to de-clutter and that’s where we can give you a hand! Our wide range of wicker storage baskets are a durable, sustainable and elegant way of keeping your home organised. Whether that’s for shoes, paper work, clothes, children’s toys, kitchen utensils – you name it! You will feel so much better coming home to an organised home and the best part? You’ll know where everything is!

A “life” spring clean is possibly the most therapeutic spring clean of them all! There’s nothing more satisfying then having an empty email inbox is there? Pour yourself a hot drink, settle down with your laptop and some relaxing music in the background and make time to sort through all your emails. Start by organising them into folders and deleting all your spam emails, then do the same with your photographs! Download a storage app and sort all your photos into albums and dates, then add them to a memory stick! You can label and date them, then store them away for when you want to dig them out again later on.


Finally, spring clean your mind of negative thoughts. When the fruits & berries are in season, why not take a walk down to the nearest tracks beneath the sunshine and collect some to bake into a delicious cake? Or if you have a garden, why not take some time out to spruce it up and fill it with your favourite blooms or vegetables. Our Director, Catherine, loves to garden and finds  planting beautiful flowers very relaxing for the mind and the soul. If you need some inspiration for your garden, click here.

And when it comes to bed time, the best way to de-clutter your mind before bed is by practising gratitude. Note down 5 things that you are thankful for and keep it beside your bed or why not try listening to a positive podcast to fuel happiness, success and peace into your life.
