I love when the season turns to spring, don't you? It finally starts to feel a bit warmer, the ground and air begin to thaw, and you can see the evidence of new life coming from buds on the trees and small shoots in the ground. It really does feel like the beginning of something new, doesn't it?

While enjoying this change of season make sure to get winter clutter out of your home, to get ready for these new beginnings and to get ready for increased activity in and around your home with the return or warmer weather.

Below is my checklist of things you should declutter from your home in the spring to get you going (I've listed them first in the article itself, with links to other articles on the site which will help you do all these decluttering tasks, and then below that is the the free printable PDF version of this checklist).

Please note, many of these decluttering tasks will look familiar, because many of them are items I've added to the Declutter 365 calendar around when the season changes from winter to spring, mainly in the months of March, April and May.

Spring Checklist

Fall & Winter Clothes

Make sure to get rid of fall and winter clothes that went unused, or have gotten worn out or stained over the course of the past cold seasons. After all, if you never wore the the clothes in the past season why would you think you'd wear them next fall or winter? And if they are now past their prime, you know you won't wear them again either, so it's time to let them go.

When you do your seasonal clothing switch to make your closet ready for warmer weather clothing, it's the perfect time to also either store or declutter those cool or cold weather clothes.

Fall & Winter Shoes

Similarly, it's time to look through your shoes and get rid of ones that are worn out, don't fit properly, or that you know you won't wear anymore.

Especially look at your winter shoes, since that season has just ended. Get rid of boots or other heavy shoes that have worn out or been ruined by the snowy winter weather.

Outgrown Kids Clothes & Shoes

The change of seasons, from cool to warm, is also the perfect time to get rid of outgrown clothes and shoes for your kids.

If you've got a younger sibling at home who could later wear some of these clothes you can definitely put some of the outgrown clothes into storage, but otherwise get clothes that don't fit out of your kids' drawers and closets to allow room for the stuff that does fit, and is right for this season.

Seasonal Decorations From Winter

Winter has quite a few holidays, including Christmas (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), and if you haven't put up those Christmas decorations yet, now is the time.

Of course, since Christmas happens in the heart of winter, we often get those decorations out and put them all away, within that season, as discussed and suggested within the winter decluttering checklist.

One holiday you may not have decluttered from yet though is Valentine's. If that's the case, go ahead and put away any decorations you'll use again next year, and declutter any you never even got out, or that you know you won't use again.

In addition, if you already know there are some spring decorations you don't want to use this upcoming season, it's the perfect time to get rid of them as well.

Here are ideas for holiday decoration storage, for the items you'll put away but are keeping for next year.

Suitcases & Bags For Traveling

With the change to warmer weather a lot of us get the itch to travel, so get ready for traveling season by decluttering excess suitcases and bags.

Winter-Weight Linens

As the seasons change many people also change from their winter-weight linens, such as heavy blankets and flannel sheets, to those which are lighter, to keep themselves cooler at night.

Therefore, this spring get rid of worn out winter-weight linens, those you never even used over the fall and winter, or those lighter summer-weight linens you already know you're not going to use during the upcoming seasons.

You can get tips for decluttering sheets here, and for decluttering blankets here.

Off-Site Storage Units Or Lockers

Sometimes we have so much stuff that we pay to store it somewhere else, such as within a storage unit or storage locker.

It's hard to clear out these types of spaces and get rid of clutter in them, so you're only paying to store what you really need (or completely removing everything from them completely) when the weather is cold and snowy. Now that it's getting warmer it's the perfect time to clear out these types of off-site storage spaces.

Attic Storage Areas

The weather turning warmer also makes it a great time to declutter your attic. Since your attic is most likely not heated or cooled, spring is often the best time of year to clear out this space, while it's not too cold nor too hot up there.

Here are tips for decluttering your attic.

Outdoor Spaces, Such As Patio, Deck Or Porch

Finally, the changing seasons make it the perfect time to declutter outdoor spaces, such as your patio, deck or porch.

You can get rid of seasonal decorations, re-decorate these outdoor spaces with spring decor, and also bring out any furniture or other items that were stored during cooler weather.
