Top 3 Spring Cleaning Tips for 2022

It’s about that time of year where we can catch some sun rays in our own backyards. But we wouldn’t want to lounge on a messy patio or rest in the yard when we know we still haven’t done our spring cleaning. So if you’re like many loved ones I know and are only getting to your spring cleaning now in late May of 2022, then I compiled some tips for you that I collected from friends and my own experience that are tailored for spring cleaning in 2022.

I hope you get inspired, learn something and most importantly enjoy your spring! Now enjoy these top tips.

Top Spring Cleaning Tip #1: Start off with an assessment of your whole property or properties that need spring cleaning, and write a checklist of things you need to get done. This strategy of making a plan first makes things more efficient. If you just start by tackling the first thing in mind, you might realize you could’ve saved hours of time if you had only began one project instead of another or did things in a different order.

So tip #1 is all about being aware of what needs to get done and spending the time to think and plan before jumping right ahead. Especially in 2022 where you might be eager to get things refreshed, it’s important to take your time and and think ahead. Try using a free online calendar to schedule your tasks over a span of several days at the least, if you don’t already have a calendar at home. I also found that a journal or a planner can help you organize your cleaning projects. It’s amazing how much time you can save when you’re well prepared, for this time also allows you to gather all the tools and products you’ll need for various tasks.

Top Spring Cleaning Tip #2: Once you have your game plan, start with the most difficult thing, so long as it doesn’t impede you from doing the other things on your list. Say, for example, my friend’s aunt needed crawl space mould removal service in late April and since this was the hardest thing on the list of all her chores she did it first. By getting the hardest thing done first, you make the whole experience more enjoyable because the work that could be considered more fun is left for last and you don’t have to work knowing you saved the hardest thing for last. But like all the tips here, it’s not necessary, only here to improve your spring cleaning if you wish to use it.

Top Spring Cleaning Tip #3: While you’re actually cleaning and knocking off all the chores on your list, keep reminding yourself why you’re doing this and how you plan to enjoy your space as the weather continues to get sunnier. When I was cleaning my back patio, for example, I thought of how this spring could be the perfect opportunity to reacquaint with old friends I haven’t seen in several years by organizing a BBQ.

Some people do a large cleaning session in spring time purely for the results of cleanliness, but I like to look at is as trimming the fat of winter for summertime fun and festivity. While cleaning you also have the ability to ponder on things, so it can also help to motivate you to get more cleaning done when you remind yourself why you’re cleaning and how much fun you’re going to have in the summer.

These were my top 3 tips for spring cleaning in 2022. I hope you found them useful and make great progress on your projects this long weekend. Thanks for reading and check back on the Rezonord blog for more.

Winter-proofing Your Home, Why It’s Important

It’s 2021, and the weather is more unpredictable than ever. People are stuck in their homes around the world, whether from government lockdown mandates or bad weather itself. In parts of the world, electric grids are down. Who knows? Your electricity might go out this winter? If it does, what will you do about it?

Let me tell you what I’m doing about it ahead of time, in Vancouver BC. I’m winter-proofing my home, renovating for better insulation, installing several new fireplaces, strengthening the foundation with masonry. I’ll be ready – but will you? – when electricity goes out this winter…

Even if it’s on Christmas day when the electricity goes out, we’ll be prepared like true classical liberals, not needing any help from the government, when we use our chopped wood to keep the house warm and open our presents around the firelight. We’ll be eating smoked meat. Reading poetry in our winter-proof home. Safe and secure. What about you?

The meek will inherit the earth. I always thought that meant the people who know how to survive without government assistance will be the last ones standing when Hell breaks loose and winter hits the fan.

When the roads are frozen and the stores close early, will you have enough to survive? Or will you do what every progressive will probably do and call 911 on their phones with low batteries just to be put on hold? I’m telling you it’s important to winter-proof your home, because the government isn’t going to do it for you.

This leaves me to share an anonymous quote: “If you can take a precaution and it doesn’t hurt you, it may hurt you not to take it.”

Good luck out there. Winter is coming.
