Spring is in the air and it’s time for the traditional “Spring Cleaning” activities to begin. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to open the windows and let some fresh air in. Typically, I spend the winter months organizing, straightening and surface cleaning. To be honest, I prefer to spend those cold days cuddled up with a great book or cooking up some new crock pot recipes. However, at the first sign of spring I actually get excited about giving every inch of my home a shine.

I have found in the past that the best way to get the job done in a time efficient manner is with a “To-Do” list or checklist. I have included a downloadable Spring Cleaning Checklist here. I thought I would share my list to help you get started. It may seem a little long but many of the tasks aren’t that time consuming. If you start your cleaning with a sunny attitude you may also find the jobs get done faster. Turn on some music and dance your way through the rooms with sponges and rags in hand. Most importantly plan a special reward for yourself when the list is complete. Good Luck! Get Cleaning!
