Spring is finally upon us and everyone knows that means it is time for some good old fashioned spring cleaning!
I have to admit that I always seem to have some sort of clutter and piles, school books, papers, art work and toys laying around on a regular basis. Those things don’t normally bother me too much because it shows that there is LIFE in this house.
I am not what you would call a “neat freak”, but I sure can appreciate a thorough, deep cleaning from time to time. The natural time for a deep cleaning for our family is always in the spring time.
The weather is beautiful outside, it’s not yet too hot here in Florida anyways, the birds are chirping, and the air smells clean and fresh. It really is the ideal scenario to open those windows, pull out the cleaning supplies and get to work.
By the end of March, we have already gotten the winter clothes put away, and the spring/summer clothes washed and hung up. Bags of donations are always beginning to pile up and purging and organizing just naturally begins for us. Once toys and clothes have been sorted and closets are organized, the big cleaning chores can finally begin.
Spring cleaning is a pretty big task and it can be overwhelming, especially if you aren’t super organized. I have always felt like I struggled in that area of homemaking, and most days I am just flying by the seat of my pants and moving on to the next thing without a solid plan in place. This doesn’t always work out so well when there are a lot of tasks to deal with.
If you struggle with staying on task and figuring out what you need to clean, and how to clean it you may appreciate all the wonderful, free printables we have gathered up to help you out. I have broken them down by printables you can use for your children and printables for the homemaker.
