Simple Ways to Get Organized This Spring
April 11, 2016
Spring is in full swing and nothing feels better than a clean, well-organized home. Don’t let the thought of tackling spring cleaning overwhelm you. By following a few easy steps you can achieve that spring in your step and fresh feeling in your home.
First, check your cleaning agents to ensure they are environmentally-friendly. You won’t want to use products that state “danger” or “harmful if swallowed.” Many safe cleaners can be made from items you already have on hand. Check out How To Make Your Own Green Cleaning Products. One of Ave Maria’s home builders, CC Homes, is already incorporating environmentally-friendly, green building techniques in their new single-family homes. By using suppliers and materials certified to meet Federal green-building standards, CC Homes ensures your new home in Ave Maria will be constructed responsibly with your family and your surroundings in mind.
Simply want to clear away the clutter? Organize your desk with piles designated for Today, This Week, and This Month. By whittling down the mounting papers, bills, and magazines, and knowing the due dates for tasks you will be able to focus and prioritize instead of being overwhelmed. The Pulte Planning Center® is a unique feature created by Pulte Homes to help organize your life. This separate center, typically located off the kitchen, is ideal for organizing crafts, charge electronics, pay bills, and do homework. Several floor plans in Avalon Park in Ave Maria offer this specialty option.
Spring cleaning can also translate into cleaning out the refrigerator and eating healthier. The Publix Supermarket in Ave Maria Town Center offers fresh local produce, simple meal ideas, and grab n’ go salads and sandwiches. Stop in before work, on your way to the Ave Maria Fitness Center, or just after school to pick up items for tonight’s dinner. Peruse several springtime healthy menus and you’ll be ready for summer swimsuit season in no time.
Living in Southwest Florida and Ave Maria gives everyone the flexibility to enjoy a healthy lifestyle by spending time outdoors, gathering together with friends and neighbors, and experiencing the natural beauty of our community just minutes from Naples, Florida.
