It may not look like it, but Spring is fast approaching and you know what that means: spring cleaning! With the warm weather (hopefully) on the way it’s time to spruce up your home and get it out of its winter funk. Check out the five apps that are sure to help you spring into a cleaner home.
Don’t forget what may be the smelliest part of the house when you begin your spring cleaning this year. The Fridge (the app not the appliance) can help you keep track of what you put in your refridgerator and when it will go bad. The app will not only let you know when food is reaching its expiration, but it will also help you build out a grocery list and even suggest recipes that include the ingredients you already have.
When the seasons change there’s always an urge to get some new outfits, especially when the weather begins to warm up. However, if your closet looks anything like mine, closet space is at a premium. ThreadUp is an app that makes cleaning out your closet fun, easy, and lucrative. With this app you can order a Clean Out Bag which can be filled with all those clothes that either don’t quite fit or you never had the chance to return. Once the bag is full send it to ThreadUp and they will pay you once the item sells on their site. You can use the cash at your local mall or it can be converted to ThreadUp credits you can use on their site where they sell designer brands for up to 90 percent off.
Mopping, scrubbing, and wiping is never fun, but with the right tunes it can be so much better. Dance your way through spring cleaning with Spotify. The free music streaming app can be downloaded to any device and allows you to follow any number of playlists and artists, and you can even create your own awesome mix. If you don’t mind the occasional commercial the free play is great, but the $9.99 a-month fee for Premium play is a small price to pay for no commercials and offline play so you can listen anywhere at any time. And with the Premium subscription you can play all your Spotify music on your Sonos speaker! Spring cleaning has never been so fun.
