spring cleaning appsIt's that time of the year again — time to spring clean your house (and your life). Use these five apps to help motivate you to become more clean, neat, and organized:

1. FlyLady

This app helps to make cleaning less stressful by dividing your house into zones, such as the kitchen or living room, which allows you to focus on one zone at a time. You can also assign routines to each of your zones, like vacuuming. Once you're finished, you can check the task off your list. FlyLady notifies you when it's time to move on to a new zone.

2. Spring Cleaning Checklist

This app helps you to create a cleaning checklist for each room in your house, and you can add tasks, too. Start with one room at a time and complete each task for that room.

3. Home Routines

This app allows you to create checklists, assign tasks to specific days of the week, and set alerts to stay on track. For instance, you can be reminded to do laundry once a week, wipe down windows once a month, and take out the recycling every two weeks. You can add rooms and tasks to focus zones, which help you stay organized.

4. Handy

Have a lot of home repairs that you haven't gotten around to just yet? Why not get help from a professional handyman? This app enables you to conveniently hire background-checked professionals right from your phone to help finish the job for you.

5. KonMari

If you haven't heard of Marie Kondo's Kon Mari Method of tidying up by now, you're missing out on a life-changing trend. This official app has features to help you tidy and organize your entire life by providing tips, tricks, and process reports. It'll definitely spark joy in your life.

No more excuses

Since there's basically an app for everything now, there's no excuse not to spring clean your home. The above apps can help make things more manageable and a heck of a lot easier by keeping you motivated, organized, and on track. Who knows, you might actually have some fun cleaning and decluttering.
