Time to shake off the winter blues and get ready for Summer! But first, as always, there’s a little work to do before you can relax and enjoy the fun.
These 33 tips run the gamut from closets, to kitchen, to purse and include green cleaning solutions. If you accomplish half of these you’ll be in great shape! If you did not join the Marie Kondo craze this winter and still have things left to clean and organize, this may help you!
Get your garden ready
Prep your tools, gas-up the lawn mower, start seedlings, prep soil, weed, mulch and prune dead branches. For indoor plants, repot, feed, and sun them!
Replacing smoke and CO2 detector batteries, cleaning dryer vents, changing air filters, cleaning your chimney, are just a few annual musts. This handy monthly checklist may help keep you on track. Also, check out CentriQ, an app we found that helps you fix and maintain “everything you plug in at home.”
Finally, it is a good idea to have your mortgage reviewed as part of your yearly financial check-up. You will want to make sure your current loan still fulfills your financial needs, and prepare for any upcoming changes in circumstances such as an ARM expiring, or a large expense you may need to finance. Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation is always happy to help with your home financing and answer any questions you may have. Contact your loan originator to schedule your annual review!
If you are planning to purchase this spring, be sure to get pre-approved before you begin your home search!
