Learn how to plan your Spring Cleaning sessions using this 8-Day method to declutter, deep clean, and freshen up your whole home.
Hey there, Busy Mama. I’m so glad you’re here! You’ve decided to tackle Spring Cleaning the way it was meant to be tackled, by giving your home and your family a fresh start to enjoy those vibrant new colors in your closet or cold glasses of sweet tea on your porch. Let me tell you something, though. Just because Spring Cleaning seems to rush in every year doesn’t mean that you should rush to finish it.
You can take it one day, one room at a time, and I’ve created an 8-day system that starts slowly, takes care of you first, and keeps you motivated to freshen up your home inside and out.
Along with the following eight blog posts, my Spring Cleaning Printable Planner is available in the Organized-ish Binder Kit Collection and it’s packed with checklists for every room of the house. If you’re a woman who likes checklists, that planner is calling your name. Speaking of things calling your name, I hear your cleaning caddy, and she’s ready to get started!
