Alright readers, it's time to pull out that vacuum and mop and get to cleaning! Seriously though, now that it's Spring I am feeling the need to clean my house from top to bottom.
This is the first time I've lived in the same place for over 2 years (coming up on 3 now) and it's time for me to do a deep clean. Not just a quick once over with the vacuum and the occasional mop, I need to actually wash walls and baseboards and inside cupboards. It's time.
But since we all know that I'm pretty lazy and lacking in the motivation department, I thought it would be fun to do a Spring cleaning challenge together! So I challenge you, dear reader, to join me in this quest to clean our houses! (I'm looking especially at you Amy.)
Let me say something quick though. If you're one of those people who always have a clean house or who have already done their Spring cleaning, no need to read further. We are proud of you but also slightly jealous. Although... if you want to come over and help me clean, feel free!
I have found a schedule on Pinterest that I thought looked relatively straight forward and not too complicated. I'm not one of those people who is going to spend 4 hours house cleaning each day so I needed tasks that were quick and easy. According to the blog where I found this schedule, each task should take between 20 minutes to an hour. Not bad, right?
Now I realize that the writing on this list is kind of tiny so feel free to go to the actual Savvy Sugar blog to read more about this challenge and find links and tips for some of the tasks. You can also print off a copy to hang on your fridge to keep you motivated.
Okay, now down to the nitty gritty. We all know that the chances of me completing this list in a consecutive 30 days is slim to none. I'm not going to kid myself by thinking I will actually do a challenge each day, 7 days a week. My goal is going to be to do 5 tasks a week, I can choose which days. That way, if I have an especially busy Thursday, I don't need to stress about completing the task by midnight, I can just choose to catch up on the Saturday!
I also plan on doing an accountability post every Friday, telling you how I am doing with it and asking you how you're doing with it! What do you think? Does that work well?
I know that deep down we would all love to have clean houses and this is the perfect way to get a start on that goal. So please join me in this challenge and let's kick it off by cleaning our microwave and oven! Who's in?
