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:

What's the first thing on your spring cleaning to do list?

Putting all the winter clothes away.

Do you have a lot of stuff you need to get rid of?

Not too much. Mainly winter clothes that won't fit next year.


Is your home disorganized?

A little but that's why I love Spring cleaning it helps me get organized.

I always make a list. My problem is getting the stuff I put on the list done.

We just moved into a new house. So for me, it's mainly just keeping it clean. What I do need to do though is get my last several boxes unpacked and put away. I also need to clean and polish our dining room set. I didn't realize how bad it is until we moved it!

We're moving next month so I do have a list. I'm cleaning and decluttering while packing right now.

I need to clean out my closet and organize my drawers! I've lost 100 pounds in the last 7 months and still have all my size 24 down to my current size 12! The rest of my house needs some attention too!
