Spring has sprung, and we couldn't be happier! Here are some fun, quick and clutter-free things to do to welcome spring into your home. Even choosing one or two of these projects will make a big difference.

* Store Out of Season Clothing ~ now is a great time to wash or dry clean seasonal items like hats, scarves and heavy coats. Do a sanity check before sorting and donate anything that is worn, torn or no longer fits.

* Incubate Off-Season Craft Projects ~ many of us are seasonal crafters, perhaps loving to knit in the winter, but not so much in the warmer months. If you're that way as well, now is a great time to move your out-of-season craft items into storage to make space in your home, and on your calendar, for in-season projects.

*Declutter Your Freezer ~ if you cook seasonally, for example if you prepare more roasts and soups in the winter months, and depend more frequently on salads and grilling in the warmer  months, now is a great time to clean out your freezer. Use up the frozen roasts, stewing meat, soup vegetables and anything else you're unlikely to use in the upcoming summer months.

* Check Expiration Dates on Sunscreen ~ if necessary, stock up on fresh supplies of sunscreen, lip balm and bug spray.
