13. Go Paperless
If going through those stacks of old bills and papers doesn’t motivate you to go paperless, think about how much more eco-friendly it is. Not to mention cheaper!
14. Cyber Security
With major retailers like Target and financial institutions like J.P. Morgan Chase falling prey to hackers, its never been more important to stay on top of your personal cybersecurity. Spring cleaning can extend to your online passwords too—although you should change them more than once a year. While you’re resetting, check for unauthorized transactions too. And if you haven’t checked your credit report. You can get that at Annual Credit report.com.
15. Reassess Relationships
Last but not least, take the time to spring clean your relationships. Take stock of your friendships and commit to eliminating toxic people from your life and making an effort to nurture positive friendships. And while you’re at it, tidy up your social media contacts and purge those that you don’t personally know or haven’t interacted with in the past year.
