We love the tips from the experts at US News on some smart spring maintenance projects to help you save even more time and money down the line. For instance, cleaning your refrigerator coils will help your perishables stay fresh longer – all it takes is vacuuming the dirt and dust behind your fridge.

Another easy do-it-yourself is a quick check of your washing machine hoses. Cracks can cause leaks and over time, mold and water damage, so if they look shoddy, just pick up a replacement from your local hardware store.

Got a green thumb? Consider location before you dig into landscaping. Planting deciduous trees (ones that lose leaves annually) near windows offer shade, allowing your casa to stay cool during the hot summer months. Your AC bill will thank you.

Get sprucing!
