Have no fear, Spring is here! That means time to open up those windows, put away winter boots and start Spring Cleaning. Having goals when you start cleaning is the smartest way to get cleaning. Here are some great goals to help get your cleaning done right.
- Put all winter clothing away.
- Don’t forget the windows.
- Baseboards matter.
- Rotate seasonal tools.
- Move all rugs and clean under them.
- Power wash all the things.
- Donate 10+ things to Goodwill.
All these goals are easy. Make sure you clean things that you don’t clean during your weekly clean ups and may even forget during deep cleans. You can even use these tips to help get your cleaning done faster. When you are gathering stuff to donate to Goodwill, remember the more you donate, the more you help your community.
If you are not sure where your local Goodwill is, you can use the Goodwill Locator App available for Android and iOS devices and at http://www.goodwill.org/ (click “Explore Our Map” on the homepage). Simply input the items you’re donating to calculate the number of hours of career counseling, on-the-job training, résumé preparation, financial planning classes, and other services you’ve helped provide people facing challenges finding employment. When jobs thrive, communities thrive.
Goodwill’s career centers, training programs, and staffing operations give people the resources, skills, and confidence that changes thousands of lives each year.
Thanks to the programs and support services made possible by donations of clothes and household items, Goodwill helped place more than 312,000 people in jobs in the United States and Canada in 2015 – that’s one person finding a job every 23 seconds of every business day.
