Decluttering the home is not just for spring. While most of us take advantage of the longer, warmer days to fling open windows and doors and do all sorts of deep cleaning activities in the home, there is no reason why you cannot spruce up your home in-between times. Obviously, you do need to schedule this wisely as no-one would enjoy open windows in the middle of an Edmonton winter when the temperature drops to double figures below freezing!
