Welcome to Day 1 of the Spring Cleaning Challenge!

It's time to clean and organize your home but where to start? Start by figuring out your goals. Whether it's making the most out of a small closet or getting rid of things you no longer need, make out a list of what you want to achieve with your spring cleaning to help you get started and stay on track to meet your goals.

What's the first thing on your spring cleaning to do list?
Do you have a lot of stuff you need to get rid of?
Is your home disorganized?

If you need help getting started on your list, this is a pretty good one:

I have my list set! Everything I want to get done is on an organized list and color coded by day. I have tons of clothes that need to be packed up and organized, toy boxes to go thru and even books that need to be dropped off at my moms nursing home. So much to do lol

 I have my list made. I would mostly like to organize and get rid of stuff that we don't need/use.

Our to-do list is basically "EVERYTHING." Yesterday we had friends take our daughter, so we could really do a deep clean. It's finally nice enough outside that we can open up our windows!

We're very organized to begin with, so this is a step we can usually skip.

 I need to go through all my things and decide what I'm taking to my apartment and what I'm going to donate or throw out. That will declutter a LOT. I'm going to start with my bedroom closet!

 My goal is to get rid of things we done need any longer. Clean out the closest and cabinets so we have more space.
