Spring is here and we know what that means...Spring cleaning! I’m as opposed to the whole cleaning scene as the next busy gal, but there are some things that just need to be done. The clothes can only pile so high before you actually have to wash them (:
Over the years my clutter bug ways became a challenge, so I was on a mission to develop some sort of system or checklist to keep me focused in a natural, no stress way. For many years I lived the way so many others do today...whatever's flying around in front of me gets the most attention. That's okay for a little while, but it's no way to create a planned and prepared life.
I love the idea of placing them inside frames and using a whiteboard marker to check off the tasks as they're done. The frames above were only $1 each (don't you love The Dollar Store) and look more like organized mini whiteboards than simple lists. Match them to your design style and make them fun!!
If you aren't sure where to start in creating your own lists, we're offering our Cleaning Simplicity Printables which include Indoor and Outdoor Spring Cleaning Checklists just in time for the season! When you purchase our downloads, print as many as you like. Pop them into frames to use them over and over again, add them to your homekeeping notebook or simply hang them on the fridge. By following the lists and doing a little at a time, you'll never be overwhelmed by cleaning again!
