Spring Cleaning Checklist

've been busy with so many little things that I haven't gotten a chance to get started on my spring cleaning. I'm getting started this week, definitely won't be done by the first day of spring! However, I'm hoping by the end of March.

Here's my quick list if anyone wants to join me:

I also put the list in my left sidebar, I'll mark off as I complete items there. I only have a few hours after work during the week and I need some me and blogging time as well, so don't expect too much to get done on weekdays!


  1. Great list!! :) I shall copy, paste, and apply to my own space! :)

    Ah spring. If I clean will you come sooner?

  2. Definitely! ;) Photos will be up for sure!

  3. Blaze: We can only hope!

    I'll probably do a round-up at the end of the month for people to share whatever they've chosen to tackle if they like :)

    Glad to hear it, I know some art shows don't like people taking photos :) I hope it goes well for you though!

  4. Looks like you're going to be quite busy!

  5. Jerri: I'll spread it out and have help from hubby. It won't be too bad :)

  6. What a comprehensive list! I'm just grateful that there's a few things on your list I don't have to do although I have a few that you don't. I have to watch for snakes & get the dogs to the vet for their annual snake bite anti-venom shot & get the pool opened, cleaned & chemically treated. Plus no screens to change out; too many dust storms!

  7. I think you're supposed to do this spring cleaning business at my house!


Thank you so much for commenting. I love every single one!
