March is a great time to begin to refresh your home for spring. After a house has been closed up for the winter, it needs some deep cleaning, purging and refreshing. Fireplaces create grime on the inside windows, heat ducts create dust and people create clutter! I started in this week with windows and was amazed at how dirty they were! It made me determined to get things really clean again. How about you? Are you in the same cleaning mode?
If you need help with what you might need to do, I’ve gathered some great lists I found on the Internet. Find one that suits your home and needs, then print it off and work at it a little at a time so you won’t feel overwhelmed. Give yourself a month to get it done. You might even make a target “finish” date and put a reminder on your calendar.
Ready? Here they are:
Simply Stacie has a really thorough room-by-room list here.
Yet Another Mom Blogger has a PDF or electronic list you can get here .
Premeditated Leftovers has specifics in each room if you need a little more detail about what you need to do.
Passion for Savings has a color or black and white list you can print off.
Who else has the cleaning bug?
