1. Set Specific Goals: Identify what you want to accomplish with your spring cleaning. Whether it’s deep cleaning your kitchen, decluttering your closet, or organizing your garage, setting specific goals can help you stay focused and motivated.

  2. Break It Down: Rather than tackling everything at once, break down your spring cleaning into smaller, manageable tasks. This will help you avoid feeling overwhelmed and make it easier to get started.

  3. Create A Plan: Make a list of all the tasks you want to complete and create a plan for how you will tackle them. Having a plan in place can help you stay on track and avoid procrastination.

  4. Get Inspired: Look for inspiration online to get ideas for how you want your space to look and feel after your spring cleaning is complete. Visualizing the end result can help motivate you to get started.

  5. Make It Fun: Put on some music, invite a friend over to help, or reward yourself with something you enjoy after each task is completed. Adding some fun and enjoyment to the process can help you stay motivated and make the experience more enjoyable overall. and to your satisfaction.


4 factors to consider when thinking about whether or not you should sell your home.

  1. Market Conditions: If the market is hot, with high demand and low inventory, it may be a good time to sell and potentially get a higher price for your home. Conversely, if the market is slow, with more homes for sale than buyers, it may be more challenging to sell your home and you may need to lower your asking price.

  2. Personal Circumstances: Your personal situation should also be taken into account when deciding when to sell your home. For example, if you are upgrading, downsizing, relocating, etc. 

  3. Home Maintenance: If your home requires significant repairs or maintenance, rather than investing money into repairs, selling the home as-is may be the best option.

  4. Equity: If you have built up a significant amount of equity in your home, you may want to sell to take advantage of the profits. This equity can be used to purchase a new home, invest in other assets, or simply saved.


The head of the Bank of Canada poured water on market expectations for interest rate cuts in 2023 as the central bank maintained its key policy rate on Wednesday.

The Bank of Canada held its benchmark interest rate at 4.5 per cent in a second consecutive decision, a move largely in line with economists’ expectations.
