Spring Cleaning: 4 Simple Tips

Spring cleaning made simple with these four tips
Spring is a key moment for cleaning out clutter and getting organized. My small home office was in desperate need of a makeover, so the opportunity to do a little spring cleaning with eBay couldn't have come at a better time. I was gifted an eBay Gift Card, which basically means I had the world at my fingertips! Anything I could imagine, I could find - and scoop up with one card. Shopping with my eBay Gift Card meant finding the best values and those special items I needed for my unique space and organization needs.

That's why spring cleaning couldn't be easier with an eBay Gift Card. Whether you're cleaning out your closet, making over your wardrobe or starting a renovation project (indoors or outside), eBay has all the fresh new things you need to complete your project. And, that's why the eBay Gift Card in and of itself would make a great gift for friends and family for spring or any other occasions!

Here are 4 ways I'm spring cleaning my office, plus the perfect eBay finds to make it happen:

Spring clean your office with these essential, affordable organizing ideas.
1. Everyone's been talking about a "new" way to declutter called the Konmari Method, and I have to admit, the idea is simple and appealing: Keep only what brings you joy. The problem is, my countless bottles of nail polish do bring me joy! Since I'm not ready to part with them (yet), some stylish storage is what's needed. These clear storage boxes are perfect for storing and showing off your nail polish collection (or anything else that sparks your bliss).

2. Since I'm always testing new beauty products that come my way, I needed a way to organize them so they didn't pile up on the floor in plastic bags and mismatched boxes. I put the bulk of them in white plastic bins, then display my current favorites on my desk. Acrylic makeup organizers are as beautiful as they are functional; something like this storage display box lets you see your makeup and keep favorites close at hand. I'm loving this acrylic organizer for my desk drawer, too!

3. Papers, papers, everywhere! It's a never-ending battle. But one I'm willing to wage. My current tactic: I put important papers in folders and then store them in magazine holders. I also store my favorite magazines and catalogs this way (hey for my job, reading glossies is considered "research"!) Classic white matches any decor and streamlines the look of your bookshelf and office space.

4. File cabinets can take up a lot of space - space that I do not have - not to mention they're sort of an eyesore. Instead, I file important papers in storage boxes. I just ordered this Snap-N-Store Letter Size File Box in white to upgrade my filing game. It's as stylish as it is practical. Not to mention I enjoyed the process of putting things in order. That's the thing about an eBay Gift Card...it gave me more than the things I needed to tidy up, it gave me a fun and rewarding experience.

Whether you're ready to take on a project at home or need the perfect gift for any spring occasion, the eBay Gift Card makes it easy.

Thanks! It's my Cyber Monday steal from Mindy Mae's Market. Looks like it's sold out but they have a similar snow leopard clutch here:

Here's another option at H&M ($10):

And probably the BEST option is from Etsy (the 8x11.5" size is $80, similar to mine):
