Spring Cleaning Checklist

Whether you are excited about it or not, Spring Break is coming up quickly. And what better way to celebrate the turning of the seasons than with some Spring Cleaning! Now I know the concept of Spring Cleaning and cleaning your entire house can seem like a daunting task, so I have put together a checklist to help make it a little easier. Cleaning your home from top to bottom may never become effortless, but you can make the project more manageable and even enjoyable.
