    Smile Spring Cleaning

    Well I finally got my butt into motion today, and did some much needed spring cleaning. So far I have emptied my kitchen cabinets and scrubbed them down inside and out. I also cleaned all my appliances in the kitchen. They finally shine agian!

    I moved all my chairs and couches out of the way and vacuumed really good. Plus I worked on getting all the little pesky stains out of the carpet (thank you dogs!). Dusting in all the rooms has been done also

    I organized all the paperwork in the office and filed it correctly. I try to do this every couple of months, so I can keep track of receipts. And, I finally cleaned off the desk so you can actually see we have a desk. It seems to be the 'catch all' in the house.

    Next I think I'll tackle the coat closet. It's always so neglected. I'm not sure I can even tell you what's in there anymore. Wish me luck!

    Has everyone else started their Spring cleaning? What have you done?

    Tracy, she is coming to my house first, then yours , hahaha. I am so jealous, I cannot seem to get to that point yet. I have so much to do too. I wished the weather would cooperate, because then I feel more in the mood to do these things, also, with Dh still off from work with his recovery period, I cannot seem to get the routine I am used to back in the swing of things. I cannot wait until he goes back to work. LOL Good job on your successful cleaning!!

    Great job! I played hookey from work yesterday and organized my garage. My mom got some shelves for me at a garage sale for $5.00! So I put them together, then emptied boxes from when I moved almost a year ago! LOL I feel so much better and very happy with what I accomplished. Now I have to get to washing windows and screens, etc. Not my favorite job!

    I am almost done with my spring cleaning. I am still working in the basement we took down this yucky shelves and I am sweeping and getting rid of the cobwebs and then dh and I are going to work on getting the attic done (when we bought the house the people we bought it from left a hugh mess (junk)) so we need to get rid of all that so I can store my things in there since we are talking about selling next year we need to get some projects done and that is one of them. Dh and I are also working on the garage.

    I have the house done basically didn't do the backporch or laundryroom we are taking out the walls and redrywalling and isulating so that is a waste of time to spring clean in there.

    I plan to have a garage sale next weekend (3 days) and have lots to get rid of from my declutter and purging so YEAH!!!

    Good luck to everyone who is spring cleaning it makes you and your house feel better at least I think it does.

    As 3pups big sister I can testify that she always has tons of energy. Wish that were a family trait, I really ought to be spring cleaning myself. I love organizing but not cleaning. If there was someone I could swap with - me organizing, them cleaning - I'd love it!

    So far I have cleaned both of my ovens. Pull out the stove and fridge and cleaned the sides and underneath. Cleaned the inside of fridge and vac. the coils out.

    Purged mine and my husbands closets and dressers. Took out 2 big boxes and a bag of stuff to donate.
    Purged my daughters room and got ride of 3 boxes of clothes and junk.

    working on right now painting the walls and floor in the furnace room downstairs so I have room for some shelving to hold all of my stockpile.

    Still need to wash windows, walls, curtains, blinds, clean carpets and furniture, wipe down cabinets in kitchen and purge kitchen cabinets and lastly clean out the garage and have a garage sale when finished purging.

    Teeheehee...Ive heard of losing your marbles but not washing them!

    So far I've purged 3 boxes from my move of 7 years ago this year UGH! I've purged 3 garbage bags of clothes, ripped out my closet doors and am still looking to get a curtain up in there of some sort to close it back up - thus making me organize my closet. Tossed a pile of used/read magazines (lets say about 4' high pile from the floor) and tried to declutter whever I can.

    I just bought these microfibre cleaning cloths - one for the bathroom (think toilet area) and then one for general cleaning/dusting....if bf is working this weekend I will bust my hump and get the BIG dusting/wipe down done - my allergies are kicking into high gear this season with the weather being so indecisive.

    And the story continues.....
