Could you use a little help de-cluttering your home? Are you done with dust and tired of too much stuff? Take our Spring Cleaning Challenge and get your place in tip-top shape!

See below for 2 weeks of tips on cleaning and organizing your home and simplifying your life!

Our own Cafe Amanda -- a single working mom of two boys -- documented her progress throughout the challenge, posting before and after pictures, and sharing her mess-management strategies. If she's brave enough to tackle her mess and air her dirty laundry, you should be too! :)

Here's Amanda -- and her mess! (Note, that's not a playroom -- that's her living room.) Follow her progress here!


Happy Cleaning!

I'm desperate for some de-cluttering... with one toddler, a husband, two large dogs, a cat and another baby due in June living in 700 square feet is getting really tight.... we need to purge EVERYTHING that isn't essential.
