Spring Cleaning Checklist

Spring is here! It’s time to bust out the dusters, garbage bags, and the good mop, because we’re cleaning from top to bottom. Read on for my full, room-by-room spring cleaning checklist. There’s even a free printable included for you!

I don’t know about you, but as soon as March hits, I start going crazy with the household projects. Nothing is safe. I start emptying closets, scrubbing trim, and even pressure washing the patio. This year, I even made a (very optimistic) to-do list of household chores to get completed. Looks totally do-able, right?

Still, by the end of it all, my house is squeaky clean and reorganized. That leaves me with more time to get outside and enjoy the warm weather without worrying about chores. I mean, what else is there to do in the cold, rainy early spring than organize the house, right?

So, since I’m in the process right now anyway, I thought I’d break down my list, room by room, and share it with you. I’m sure it’s not as all-inclusive as some spring cleaning lists, but it works for me. I’ve also put this into a printable form for those of you that like a physical list to look at. You can download that for free right here.
