Spring Cleaning - The Fashionably Broke


Spring Cleaning

I love a reason to start fresh. There's something about Spring that puts everyone in the mood to refresh, I think. Whether it comes to your home, your style or your just your life in general, the first signs of Spring seem to bring on the urge to better whatever current state that you're in.

Organizing (and re-organzing) is something I try to stay on top of, but it's really an ongoing process. Making every day life so much easier, being organized is super important to me. Because of that, I'm constantly checking my favorite stores for cute, inexpensive ways to keep my life in order. TJMaxx and Marshalls are perfect for that stuff, I've found that they have the biggest selection of high-quality merchandise and d├ęcor. I recently did some Spring cleaning around my house, in my kitchen and my bedroom, using some fun things I found at both TJMaxx and Marshalls, so I wanted to show you what I did with some Before and After pictures.

In The Kitchen / There's three of us living here and groceries overflow easily. To be able to utilize the space above our fridge, I found these wire baskets at TJMaxx which are perfect for organizing food and drinks in the kitchen. I used them to store things that we have a lot of and use regularly, like fruit, different types of pasta and bottled water.

Our coffee set up was looking a little sad too (as you can see above), so I used another one wire basket to organize the area and create a full coffee station. The basket now holds different types of coffee, tea and other accessories.

In My Bedroom / I was really in to black and gold this winter, but with all of the cold weather I needed to warm things up a bit. A simple switch of pillows on your bed is an easy way to give your bedroom a quick, Spring make-over.

Light gray and beige pillows were a good way to brighten up the space but still keep it looking neutral. I also found a white, wood night stand to lighten things up for Spring. I really wanted something with a drawer as well, so this one from TJMaxx was perfect.
