Spring Cleaning


Yes folks, it’s that time of the year again! The sky is blue, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and I’m… spring cleaning.

It’s more fun than it sounds. Really!  To me, anyway.

I’m one of those odd ducks who actually enjoys a good deep clean and declutter. And while I do a deep clean (or “spring” cleaning) a few times a year, the one that takes place in the springtime is my favorite. I don’t know why. I’m sure it is psychological – new life, new beginnings (and it’s the only time of the year the temperature is just right so I can open up those windows!), etc, etc.

And while I’m sure many of you have already started – maybe even finished – your spring cleaning (you have, right?) there may still be a few that haven’t begun.

So join me each week as I hit the “hot spots” in my home.  You know, those places that get dumped on, forgotten about and generally mistreated.  And while I shovel out some of  my embarrassing clutter maybe you can tackle some of your own.

The tools I’m using:
~ trash can
~ laundry basket or box (for those things you find that belong someplace else)
~ box (for those things you’re going to give away)
~ timer
~ good music (optional for some; necessity for me)

I will be posting some before and after pictures to help keep myself accountable.  And since these are only weekly posts I have no excuses if I don’t finish, right?

This week’s project:  My side of the Master Closet

I won’t get into the hubby’s side of the closet.  At least not in pictures. 😉 But here is the “before” picture.


Yes, it is a mess.  The dirty clothes basket is full; my tote of family research stuff is on the floor (What?  You don’t keep your family history in the closet too?); a box of clothes to go to Goodwill; there are clothes all over the place… it hasn’t been too long since I purged my clothes (hence the aforementioned box) so I don’t have to do that.  I do have to reorganize and sort though.

So I’ll see y’all in a week with my progress (hopefully) and the next stop on my Spring Cleaning Tour!
