 Organizing is wonderful, but I think it's different than cleaning. When I think of spring cleaning I think of washing walls, shampooing the carpets, etc. This video fell short on being a "spring clean intervention." It was a discussion, not an intervention, and they never talked about HOW to get organized, only the importance of doing it, much less cleaning tips. Disappointed.

Spring break is a good time for us to get back on track with some extra hands around.

She's right, organizing helps you live a more stress free life. I love organizing things, my stuff goes back in the same place everyday/every time I use them.

You're right, they should retitle it, it has nothing to do with cleaning.

Agreed.

Also, organization will mean different things to different people....

Yes I need a "year 'round" cleaning, not just a spring cleaning.
