Spring cleaning has officially come into being, but figuring out where to start can be more difficult than the act itself. Should you focus your energy on scrubbing the walls of your shower first or focus on tidying up your linen closet? Is this the year you finally get to organize the garage or would it be better to spend your time dusting the ceiling fans? Everyone’s purge-slash-sanitize plans are a little different, so this year why not turn to the ultimate advisers for guidance: the stars. Here are the spots to favor according to your astrological sign.
Aries are born leaders, who regularly launch projects and connect with like-minded people. If you’re an Aries, chances are your junk drawer is full of post-it notes, business cards, and old to-do lists you’ve ditched in favor of your next big idea. So consider an organizer that looks as chic sitting on the counter as it does hiding in a desk drawer so you can find what you’re looking for in a snap.
Luxury-loving Taurus are no strangers to overflowing wellness products. As you commit to adopting the “going out with the old, out with the new” mentality, pay special attention to your medicine cabinet. Pro tip: Use clear, shallow bins to store your must-have skincare, makeup, and detoxifying mud masks so they don’t end up overflowing.
Whether you’re nursing a third latte before 10 a.m. or browsing a Sunday crossword after work, a Gemini’s coffee table will see it all. A candy-colored tray not only acts as an eye-catching centerpiece, but also an easy-to-move landing pad for the day’s tossed items (think: AirPods, pens, and lip balm).
Whether it’s baking a batch of congratulations cupcakes or cooking up an immune-boosting soup, a Cancer’s love language begins in the kitchen. Take a break from cooking for loved ones and tidy up your silverware drawer, cabinets and spice section, getting rid of all the dust collecting tools and dry goods you don’t have not used for ages.
If there’s one thing a scene-stealing lion isn’t, it’s an outfit repeater. Look to your wardrobe when it comes to spring cleaning, looking past all the sequins and feathers to pieces ready to bow out. If you haven’t worn it in the last year, send it to Goodwill to make room for all the new trends you’re sure to create this year. A hanging organizer can hold the iconic shoe styles you don’t want to part with.
Practical Virgos don’t like to go anywhere without their daily essentials close at hand. Decluttering season is the perfect opportunity to ditch the Mary Poppins comparisons and sift through your tote bags, tossing out the many “emergency” items living in the deep. Opt for color-coded mini bags to keep everything in its place.
The best hosts in town, the Libras can turn a romantic dinner into a wild sleepless night any Wednesday night. Because your entryway is the first thing guests see when they pull up, focus on your credenza to make room for flowers, gifts, and books so your home screams, “Stay a while!”
As the most nocturnal sign of the zodiac, Scorpio tends to hide their whole life in their bedside table. Do yourself a favor and get rid of crumpled tissues, extra newspapers and burnt candles. Instead, keep your after-hours necessities on a wall perch and everything else tucked away in a graphic box.
A Sagittarius’ home is best described as the landing spot between adventures, so when spring cleaning, attack the hall closet first. Empty suitcases, backpacks, and jacket pockets (you’re likely to find a forgotten souvenir or two!) to make room for all the new travels coming in 2022. To make the best use of that small space, opt for stacked bins or an over-the-door organizer with pockets for each trinket.
Workaholics through and through, Capricorns spend most of their time in the office, hoarding the clutter of past projects and new inspirations, always moving too quickly to tidy up. Take a moment to decide what gets a coveted spot in the desk drawer or a one-way ticket to the trash, so you can keep a clear head on Monday at 9 a.m.
