Over the course of the year, things can pile up. The process begins gradually and harmlessly enough, but the influx of even small things can be relentless!
At first, you just feel silly for getting a little behind.
Then, before you know it, you're in over your head!
So you start gathering everything together in neater, more organized, piles.
And that helps for a while.
In fact, some people don't even seem to mind the clutter!
But, eventually, life turns up the heat and the pile system...
...just doesn't cut it.
You're left feeling really swamped.
That's when it's time to do some spring cleaning!
So you go through the piles a little at a time...
...gather up any additional accumulation...
...make a clean sweep...
...and dump it all in storage!
And that's spring cleaning in Atqasuk.
