If you've been to my house, you know us Danisi's like to keep a tidy home. But, actually, I rarely do a deep clean. I mop 1-2 times a month, dust/vacuum once a month, and try to get to bathrooms monthly as well.
So over these next few weeks, I'm taking my cleaning seriously. I mean I'm talking about organizing cabinets, drawers, cleaning baseboards, and everything! I don't have an official plan but I have found so many spring cleaning blogs that I'm going to visit for good ideas/check lists. Here are a few you may like (click title):

4 Weeks to a More Organized Home
7 Day Cleaning Plan
Spring Cleaning the Toxins
My goal is to cover one room/living space a week.
Week 1: Kitchen
Week 2: Living Room
Week 3: Garage
Week 4: Bedrooms
Week 5: Study/Laundry Room
Week 6: Bathrooms
I figure in about 6 weeks, I'll be done with all of my spring cleaning. My hope is that as I clean, I'll collect the "stuff" that I don't use and have a big garage sale. I have really been examining the area of stewardship in my life and I realize that I consume much more than I need. I also realize that I have much more "stuff" than I really need. How did we fill up a 3 bedroom home with so much stuff? We used to live in an 800 square foot apartment!
So yes, I want my house to be spic and span. But much of this spring cleaning project will be to purge my excess and sell it/ give it away to someone who needs it.
How about you?
Want to join the spring cleaning/spring giving challenge?
We can all have garage sales at the end of the 6 weeks and report how much we purged and how much we gave!
What do you do to help with spring cleaning? Please share!
Happy cleaning :-)
