It’s that time of year again, Spring cleaning! Not too many people are happy about that, but they probably would like a neater home. Fortunately, if you organize your cleaning tasks, you’ll be able to get them done without tiring yourself out…or redoing them again and again.
Below are five steps to organize your spring cleaning so you’ll have a fresh and clean home without the headache!
1. Make a list of all the cleaning you need to do. If you’ve recently cleaned after the holidays, every room in your home may not need a deep spring cleaning. Decide what needs to be done in order for your house to be tidy and organized, and focus on these tasks only.
2. Schedule your cleaning to get it all done. Once you have a list of ‘to-dos’ for your spring cleaning, make yourself a schedule. Think about other commitments you have for the next two months, and assign time to straighten up your home around that.
One good suggestion is to print off a paper calendar for March, April, and/or May, and be specific with your scheduling. For example, if you have time on April 4th, write in exactly what you are going to tackle, such as declutter the hall closet or clean off the family desk.
