Spring Cleaning Checklist

cleaning house

Spring cleaning is when we tackle all the things we don’t normally do on a regular basis. Its the annual deep clean. I know the spring cleaning checklist looks ominous, but don’t feel like you have to accomplish all of it in one day. That’s why I start while its still winter. Do one thing a day. Don’t stress.

When its finally warm, you will be ready to head outside.
