If your house is full of clutter that has piled up throughout the winter months, spring is the perfect time to clean up and organize your home. While spring officially starts on March 20 this year, this month tends to be Colorado’s snowiest. Because it won’t really start to feel like spring until mid-April, now is the perfect time to get organized. Getting it done now, while there is still snow on the ground, means you will have plenty of free time to spend outdoors once the weather is warm enough to enjoy.
