Spring Cleaning Checklist
First, you will want to go through all of your clothing, food, toys, etc. You’ll want to have a bin for garbage, donation, and keep. Sort through everything to get rid of any unneeded items to eliminate any additional clutter. Once you tackle this you can get started on the next phase. Before tackling spring cleaning it’s a good idea to make sure you have all the supplies necessary. Grab cleaning supplies from your local supermarket or dollar store.
Decide you preferred method of cleaning- for example is it easier for you to complete one room at a time, or pick a task and complete it for the household? Use the timer method (set a timer for 30 min, then you can take a break and repeat) Put on your favorite music or show to make the experience fun!
