Everyone! It’s SPRING outside! I’ve been wearing crop pants and light jackets all week and I am just. so. happy!
In light of all these positives … I am also feeling extra motivated to do my spring cleaning. Something I have never really attempted in the past because it all seems so overwhelming. There’s still left-over renovation mess and dust … along with our everyday chaos. But I’ve got a couple bright, sunny days (even though there is a chance of snow!) ahead of me … what a perfect opportunity to get cracking on this big task. It may take me more than two days but at least I will get a good start. I just feel like jumping out of my desk with excitement … I’m SUCH a cleaning nerd. Oh my word.
AND a list nerd. So, I pulled together a list of lists to help me get the best spring cleaning possible! Some are more detailed than others, but it’s all about personal preference if you’re going to snag some of these for yourself. I will probably follow Imperfect Homemaking’s pretty closely with some of Martha’s tips thrown in for good measure. I use Martha’s daily and weekly cleaning lists to keep on top of every day stuff and I find them super helpful.
If I get tired … I will probably resort to Real Simple’s plan of attack. But we’ll see how this thing goes.

And, I’ve learned you can’t do any hard-core cleaning without a sweet playlist. Some may make fun of me for my choice in cleaning music. But I’m not offended. I sing along at the top of my lungs and then the list seems to get shorter MUCH quicker.
Do you spring clean every year? Do you have a list you usually use … or do you just “eyeball” it? Do you have favourite cleaning songs? SHARE!
