To me, spring cleaning is all the extra cleaning that you don't do on a regular basis. Washing windows, wiping down cabinets, reorganizing - that type of thing. I have been lucky enough in the past to enlist my mom's help for a good cleaning. I always find cleaning more enjoyable when she is there to help. This year, I don't think it is in the cards with all that is going on, so I am flying solo. My game plan is to go around in each room and make a list of things I want to accomplish. I do well with lists, and always love checking things off, so I think this will be a good option for me.
I also think that spring cleaning extends to the closets. It's always nice to start a new season with a good cleanout, especially in the spring. It reminds you of what you have and what you may need. I have been slowly making my way through mine this past month, and I am hoping to finish it this month. I shared my closet cleanout tips last year, and they still hold true.
I love reading about cleaning tips and tricks, so I have loaded up on magazines (and will be checking out these link up posts) - The Magnolia Journal, Real Simple, HGTV Magazine, the list goes on and on - to help get myself motivated and learn a thing or two!
