Spring Cleaning Through Collective Action

Spring cleaning, a cherished tradition observed in various cultures globally, undergoes a transformation as the Earth’s axis tilts, ushering in the rejuvenation of winter landscapes in the northern hemisphere. Daffodils bloom, grass transforms into lush green carpets, and temperatures gradually rise from late March to early April.

The concept of spring cleaning has evolved into a nationally recognized event, observed during Spring Cleaning Week. This annual initiative transcends mere household chores, extending to encompass various aspects of individuals’ lives, including finances, technology, and more.

With this broader perspective in mind, the community of The Plaza at Wildwood Senior Living in Wildwood, MO, gears up for its community-wide, spring-cleaning endeavor! This marks the fourth consecutive year that Arrow Senior Living has embraced this springtime tradition across our communities. Each passing year proves to be even more successful than the last.

I spring clean at home by changing my wardrobe from winter clothes to spring and summer clothes. During spring cleaning, I sort through storage areas and discard anything that hasn’t been used in the last year.

Wardrobe Transition & Storage Organization Tips

Spring cleaning offers benefits such as creating better-organized storage spaces and enhancing the environment. For example, I personally cleared out boxes from a medication room during spring cleaning. I then organized the supplies that needed to be put away, as shown in the attached picture. Now, these boxes can be broken down for easier management.

At home, part of my spring cleaning routine involves transitioning my wardrobe from winter clothes to spring and summer clothes.

Boxes stacked in the corner of a room look cluttered, but they will be easily broken down during our spring cleaning process.

This helps me prepare for the warmer weather and declutter my closet for the new season. Additionally, I thoroughly go through storage areas and clear out anything that hasn’t been used in the past year.

As we, the community, gather to undertake this annual ritual, we remember the power of collective action and the significance of tending to our shared environment. Our efforts not only rejuvenate our homes and neighborhoods but also fortify the bonds that unite us as members of a vibrant and thriving community.
