Spring Cleaning Checklist April 15, 2009

Filed under: cleaning — Gretchen @ 5:19 pm

Ok this is a confession… I am really not going to be getting to any spring cleaning this month!  My husband is/has been gone every week this month, we are in the home stretch with home school, sports just started up again and my grandpa just died.  Life is crazy and I am sure there are some that will relate.  For this post I will be writing a checklist of the things I do for spring cleaning that will hopefully be accomplish in May!

The way I do spring cleaning is to accomplish small tasks each week so here is my list of tasks and extra cleaning…

  • wash curtains
  • wash windows/blinds
  • wash and dust walls and baseboards
  • sort through and store all winter gear-  get rid of things the kids have grown out of and make note of things we will need for next year
  • clean out pantry and fridge (gotta make room for summer fare)
  • change and/or clean toss pillows
  • wipe down cabinets and get out the plastic outdoor plates
  • while in Minnesota I do not bust out the summer clothes quite yet I do go through all the kids clothes and toss the clothes that can’t be given away, give away the clothes that we don’t need/use, and store all the heavy turtle necks and sweaters
  • go through all toys – this is a great time to get rid of toys and also to store toys that help during the winter months (this keeps kids from getting bored with toys- we store our wii during the summer to encourage outdoor play)
