Your Ultimate Spring Cleaning Guide

It’s the last week of August, which means Spring cleaning is just around the corner. Before I got married Spring cleaning was easy. I only had a bedroom and a shared car to clean, so I could take care of that within a couple of days. Now that I’ve got a husband, a home, my own office and a car, there are many more things to clean and organize.

So, I’ve created a Spring cleaning calendar which will spread all my cleaning tasks across the month, making it all so much less overwhelming. If you’d prefer to do your Spring cleaning in a few days, go for it, but doing a little bit each day works better for some.

You can get your own free download of this pretty pink Spring cleaning calendar¬†>> right here <<, along with other printables [my personal favourite is the weekly planner I’ve got stuck on my fridge]. Print your calendar, stick it on your fridge and use it to keep track of your Spring cleaning tasks.
