Who is ready for Spring? The snow is melting and the weather is warmer! It is my favorite time of year to declutter, clean and get more organized after a cold winter spent indoors. As excited as I am to get outside and enjoy the nicer weather, I always feel better when I make sure that the inside of my house is in order. I usually do so by tackling a few areas in my home a little bit at a time or by planning a weekend that is full of cleaning and organizing. It is on those weekends that I try and enlist my hubby and our daughters to join in. I will be honest... It is not at the top of my two daughters list to clean and organize. But, I take what help I can get, when I can get it:) You can approach your Spring cleaning however it works best for you and your family! Below are just a few ideas of places that you can begin your decluttering, cleaning and organizing projects. Simply pick a spot and begin! Happy Spring!
