Great Spring Cleaning Tips for Wheelchair Users

My favorite time of the year is spring. I love the colors that come with it, as well as baby animals, warmer weather, and the fact that summer is on its way. I also love spring cleaning! Here are some ways that you can organize your stuff and get rid of what you don’t need anymore.

Spring Cleaning and Organizing with My Stretto

I love organizing as well as being organized. It’s out with the old and in with the new! My summer clothes come out to play while the winter outfits are tucked away. Whatever summer clothes that you grow out of can be replaced with brand new clothes. Plus, you can get a free shopping trip from it.

The best part of organization is sorting things into bins. I can easily take a few small bins and place them in my lap while I sit in my Quantum® Stretto Power Wheelchair and put things where they belong. I can also reach into the closet and get out small things that don’t belong using the narrow base of the Stretto. While I consider myself to be a bit of a hoarder, it feels good to clean out once a year.

Host a Yard or Garage Sale

One way to get rid of your stuff this time of year is have a garage/yard sale. With the perfect weather, it’s not too hot or cold to sit out for hours at a time selling things. It’s easy to set up, a great way to make a little money, and more importantly, an awesome way to get closer to your neighbors. With some flyers, good music, and a little motivation, it’s the perfect way to start the summer and finish up the spring.

Donate Items to the Needy

If you have a lot of stuff that you think others might want, you can donate it to charity. There are several organizations that come to your home and pick stuff up. Not only will you feel great, but it’s also a quick and easy way to get rid of your old stuff. While it’s a little sad to see your things go, it will help you feel better to know that your things are going somewhere where they will be appreciated. In the end, recycling things is not only good for the environment, but good for your well-being also.
