A Guide To Spring Cleaning + A Free Printable

With Spring right around the corner, I thought it would be nice to share a simple checklist that I use to help me tackle all the tasks that need to be done around the house during this season. Now here's the thing . . . I'm not obsessed with cleaning. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a clean and tidy house - but I don't always have time to regularly do all the deep cleaning that I'd like to during the year. So, once Spring rolls, around I make it a priority. Below you'll find a guide to getting all the things done. 

To make things easier, I created a printable that you can download and use. Just download it to your computer, it out, and add it to your homemaking binder! You can download the checklist here
