It is the first day of Spring, and I spent the better part of my morning unintentionally cleaning out my fridge and freezer. Turns out you cant leave the door open all night and expect things to stay cold. Hmmmmmm. Who woulda thunk it?

Now that it is Spring, it is time to start the process of making the things you own NOT smell like a combination of old cheese and taco meat.

It might actually make you happier. For example: Researchers polled 2,000 people, and found that every hour of cleaning you do each week is associated with a 53% boost in overall happiness.

So, if you want to use some elbow grease and start scrubbing...by all means. But, try some of these great life hacks from Buzzfeed Nifty and save yourself some time to enjoy the Spring flowers.
