It’s that time again….Spring Cleaning time!!!!
Even though I clean my house regularly, every year I go through the whole house like a crazy person and clean and organize EVERYTHING!!!
And then, somehow after a year (or less) it looks like I never did anything at all, so I have to do it all over again.
I use a spring cleaning schedule to make sure I get everything done. I always try to do my cleaning and organizing as part of my Lenten Promise. Then I have a clean house before Easter and I can relax and enjoy my summer knowing that everything is all clean. So here it is folks!!
