The homes for sale Sonoma County offer to buyers are beautiful, but they might not always be neat and tidy. Take advantage of your downtime this winter and get a jump start on your spring cleaning.

  1. Sort through your winter clothes.

    With colder weather approaching, now is a great time to check on your winter gear. Take the time to go through your coats, scarves, and mittens. Throw away any lone socks or mittens. If you haven’t found their mates yet, you probably never will.

    If your boots are scuffed or in need of repairs, take them to a local cobbler to be polished and resoled. This is a more cost effective and environmentally friendly option than throwing them out and buying a new pair.

  2. Clean out your closet.

    While you are at it, you might as well go through your closet and get rid of the rest of your unworn clothes. If you are not sure if you should keep something, use this rule of thumb: if you have not worn it in the last two years, it is probably safe to donate it to charity. The exception to this rule is specific formal items, such as a tux or a ball gown, that you may not wear often but will be glad you kept when the occasion arises.

  3. Declutter your office.

    If you encounter any stray papers in your office, you should file them away or get rid of them as appropriate. Most people accumulate stacks of papers throughout the year, but the piles that form are not the best long term storage solution. Taking care of this now can help you accomplish more in your office this spring.

    While it is not tax time yet, it is never too early to start assembling your documents. Start putting together files of receipts and gathering documentation for any deductions you will receive. When it comes time to visit your accountant, you will have all of your papers in order. This can speed up the filing process and help you get your refund sooner.

  4. Sort out your pots and pans.

    If you dread opening your kitchen cabinets, you probably have too many pots and pans. Get rid of those you do not use and consider installing a hanging rack for your most commonly used pots and pans. Once this task is completed, go out and relax with a cup of coffee. You earned it.
