Take our Spring Cleaning Challenge!

Posted by   + Show Post

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!
