The Ultimate Guide to Cleaning Up + Decluttering Your Life This Spring
March 20th is the first day of spring.
Can you believe it?
March means the end of this year’s first quarter and a good reminder to look back on annual goals to focus on what’s important.
To help you declutter this spring, I put together an epic list of posts that can help you declutter your life in all areas.
Clean Up Your Finances
Of course on a site about money, we have to talk about cleaning up your financial life first.
The spring is a good time to reduce your reoccurring bills. This post teaches you bills that you can lower. If you need help negotiating your bills down, I also have a post that can help you here.
This post is how to cut your excess spending and start budgeting so you can put more money in the bank. (If you’re new to budgeting, grab my beginner’s guide here.)
This is a fab post from Amanda Abella. She goes through steps of getting your financial life together from defining your goals, figuring out where you’re leaking money, and automating money that goes into your investment accounts.
Declutter Your Mindset
For positive things to happen in your life, you must have a positive mindset. Here are posts to help improve your outlook this spring.
This post is full of mindset gems and a post I found interesting because I learned something new. It covers seven different types of positive mindsets you need to have to be successful.

I’m really intrigued by the capsule wardrobe idea. If you have tons of shoes and clothes taking up space, a capsule wardrobe is where you get rid of everything except basics that you can interchange in a fashion forward way. Learn how to save some closet space and still look chic in this post.
