We love spring. With colorful gardens, warm sunshine, and breaking out our fun, floral dresses comes a desire for our environment to match our disposition. So, we turn to our homes. We redecorate, we add a new coat of paint, and we find a new way of organizing our cupboards from Pinterest.  Our homes are bright, clean, and ready for the year. And, of course, to match our uplifted spirits, we begin sending out charming invitations for garden parties, corresponding with long-lost friends, and hosting spring weddings in the backyard.

To celebrate, we’re giving away adorable custom stampers from master stampers Three Designing Women. Recognized in the industry for mastering the ‘clean stamp’ impression (no smudges, here!), Three Designing Women uses polymers instead of rubber, allowing for much finer detail. Each high-quality ink cartridge allows for 800-1,000 stamp impressions – so you’ll be stamping all the way into next season.

Five winners will be able to choose from over 1,000 different stamp designs – from dainty address stamps to bold monograms to floral watermarks.

What’s your best spring organizing tip? Tell us in the comments below for a chance to win one of these beautiful customized stampers. Official rules here.

    My best spring cleaning tip is to do it as a family. Every spring, all 6 of my siblings plus their spouses and children would meet at my elderly parents house for a massive spring cleaning weekend. We caught up and had so much fun washing windows, painting trim, weeding, etc that it didn’t feel like work. Even the tiny grandkids would be given tasks to help clean. We’d make games and have dandelion picking contests. The grandkids learned at an early age that work can be “fun”.

    My favorite spring cleaning advice is to give away what I haven’t used the past year. This used to be hard for me until I started volunteering at a local women’s shelter. I picture their faces and how excited and grateful they are when people donate gently used clothing or household items. I’m blessed with extra clothes and I am thankful to share what I don’t need. I encourage everyone to “spring clean” with the goal of donating to a specific group/organization.

    My favorite thing to clean in the spring is the kitchen. We have kids so I feel like everything gets chipped or cracked all the time. My organizing tip is to clean those out. My mom always seemed to keep those chipped cups and plates and in the spring we would take them outside and use a hammer and crack them and make fun collages with them. It was always a fun activity. Then we would hit up garage sales for more fun plates that were inexpensive that would last us for the next year. I loved doing this. Now with my own kids we do it too and it just makes me smile remembering how I loved it and now my kids enjoy it too. My kitchen now has fun art from my kids and we got rid of those plates/cups.

    My favorite spring cleaning tip is to get the whole family, large and small, into the act. Closets are straightened, removing clothing and shoes that no longer fit and are donated to a community yard sale. Then, one room at a time is tackled dividing up jobs among family members. Makes for a more pleasant home and teaches the kiddos how to maintain their own homes one day!

    My favorite spring organizing tip involves getting ready for my favorite summer visitors: my two grandchildren. I take our board games out of the cabinet and place them on the bottom shelf of the family room coffee table for easy access. Next, I check our craft closet, where pencils, colored pencils, markers, crayons, construction paper, drawing pads, glitter, glue, stickers, and scissors are organized in clear boxes. My grandchildren can easily find the supplies they need for their next masterpiece. Let the fun begin!

    Nothing makes you feel Springier than cleaning out your closet of all unused winter clothes.

    Let it go…let it go…let it go! Simplify.

    My best Spring organizing tip involves donating unnecessary items. As you are putting way your winter apparel and shoes, weed out the things you barely wore or perhaps didn’t even wear at all. Bag them up and donate them to a nearby charity. If you do this at the end of each season, it keeps the transitioning of items streamlined and simplified.

    Going through the clothes in my closet and purging is easy for me, but not for my borderline hoarder husband. So I have to trick him:) As his clothes come out of the wash I switch from a plastic hanger to a wooden hanger. At the end of 6 months, I can tell at a glance which clothes he never wears (still on a plastic hanger!), and they slowly disappear into my car for a trip to Goodwill. I think he secretly knows and appreciates this forceful organization.

    Spring cleaning includes my clothes. Not just doing laundry or purging unworn items but checking for damage.This is my time to sew on buttons, reinforce seams and elastic, hem, give a hard press to cuffs, creases and fallen hem lines. Dedicating a day or two to get this done means everything is ready to go and I take care of little things that may have kept me from wearing something.

    I hang clean and mended items with the hanger hook facing me (reverse once worn). I took a tip from retail stores and color coded my hangers. My winter clothes are on black hangers, summer white and all season pink. Ribbons tags work too. I can determine at a glance what is ready to wear or suitable for the weather and what can be moved to the back of the closet or hung in my spare bedroom closet.

    Get out my my gardening tools and make sure they are ready for the season. If my gardening life is organized life is good.

    Make a trip to the Container Store! I find that all the bright and shiny bins inspire me to be organized!

    I keep all of my hummingbird feeders in a cabinet in he garage and after I do taxes in mid April I put them out with my own sugar water mixture to prepare for the birds that will be flying back from South America. I have the same flock of hummingbirds show up each year at my house and want to make sure I am a good hostess!

    I open the windows, turn on some music, and clean the walls, windows and baseboards. This is my least favorite job, so I make sure to have lots of sunshine and music available to make it as enjoyable as possible!

    One of my favorite spring cleaning tips is do not just wash all of your bedding, but also wash the pillows on your bed. Then put them outside to dry on a bright sunny day. Also, get the winter’s dust and grime off of the outside of your doors and windows. There is nothing that says spring cheer more than a bright sparkling house!

    This might be more of a cleaning tip, but when I wash and put away winter linens, I also dust baseboards and blinds in that room at the same time. I figure I’ll get all the dust out of the way in one swoop.

    I keep one tub with all the spring decor- kitchen towels, door and mantel decor, garden flags etc. At the first hint of warm weather, I promptly put everything out, banishing winter reminders to the attic. This motivates me and sends a message to the rest of the family when I ask them to help purge and rework their closets and bookshelves. Having everything look bright and fresh seems to energize us for the necessary and mundane tasks ahead.

    Go through the closet & all drawers. Remove everything that hasn’t been used or worn in the past year(family heirlooms excluded) & donate to a charity or pass along to friends.
