The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer, the trees are blossoming, the pollen is tickling our noses and the swooping Magpies are out in action! Spring has officially sprung. While the beginning of spring may look very different for most of us this year, it is the perfect time to add some Spring into our homes, our gardens, diets and lifestyle.
We’ve put together a list of activities that will help put a little spring into your life!
A part from swooping magpies, it’s one of the first things that comes to mind when we think of spring. Whether it’s a deep clean of your house, or cleaning out the wardrobe – motivation is much higher when there’s some warm sunshine in the air!
If you’re spring cleaning your house, be sure to pick up Di-San Oxyaction with Enzymes and Di-San Ultra Degreaser with Enzymes from Aldi! These miracle workers have left many Aldi shoppers jaw dropped with the sparkling result they have had on their house.
Cleaning out your wardrobe and pantry? Don’t just throw away the unwanted items, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. St John’s Care in Reid is always welcoming donations to as they aim to bridge the gap and break the cycle of disadvantage, isolation and economic hardship in Canberra.

Your garden is about to spring into life (if it hasn’t already). Flowers will bloom, herbs will flourish and the grass will be greener – goodbye frost! Bunnings Warehouse has some hot tips and ideas to make sure your garden has its best spring yet!
1. Make grass greener – aerate, fertilise and water! Look out for weeds, this is the perfect time of year to attack them before they spread with weed killer.
2. Trim and tidy – prune trees and trim hedges to help promote new growth and remove any leaves that may not have made it through winter.
3. Time to plant – spring is the perfect time to plant! The weather is getting warmer and the soil is still damp. Flowers, shrubs, herbs and more!
4. Fertilise – to encourage growth and help bring your garden to life!
5. Look out for pests – prevention is the key! You don’t want your plants to be turned into a pests dinner.
