Spring cleaning is one of the most popular activities to do in the spring. Most people think this would be boring, but really there are many exciting activities people can do! When asked what she thinks about spring cleaning, Mikayla Tolen (’16) said, “Spring cleaning is such an excellent opportunity for me to get rid of all the junk that builds up during the year. Plus, there are lots of spring sales and I love getting new clothes from all the new trends. It’s so relieving and a reminder that summer is close!”

Lots of girls enjoy giving their rooms a nice clean and organizational makeover. Why not do it now! It’s spring remember? Here is a list of a few quick DIYs any person’s room would appreciate:

– Decorate the toilet paper rolls with patterned paper or just draw designs on them.

– Ta Da! Now fill the toilet paper rolls with school supplies! (This could also be used for makeup organization.)
