I keep my house fairly clean and organized in my opinion. So I was about ready to laugh at the whole "spring cleaning" thing this year and decide I didn't really need to do it because I do so much deep cleaning as I clean every week, I've never felt the need to tackle it all at once. (Case in point, last week I cleaned the oven just for fun.)
But with the onslaught of spring-like weather and after reading this blog with all her fabulous cleaning tips, I decided there are always a few things I could improve on.
Now all of the sudden I want to spring clean like I want to nest when I am pregnant. Crazy, I know.
And, I have decided to do it the long way this year 🙂
I actually plan to clean room by room this year. I know it is not the most efficient way to do it. However, I LOVE the feeling of completing a single room at a time! It's like a check off my to-do list! I get an instant rush of COA (crazy ocd adrenaline) from knowing that a particular space in my house is deep cleaned, de-cluttered, dust free and disinfected. (I can hear angels singing I think)
I have broken my house down into 10 manageable areas:
And I even accomplished deep cleaning the Family Room today, complete with cleaned windows (inside and outside), window sils, that yucky area where dirt, dust and dead flies end up where the window sits in (what's that called??), blinds, ceiling fan, baseboards...this is probably the most boring list ever to read. Sorry.
But I feel a sense of accomplishment! Love that!
As you tackle your Deep / Spring Cleaning this year, here are a few areas to remember to clean in each room:
