This year for spring cleaning I’m doing things a little bit different. Since last year was kinda of a doozy (thanks covid). I slacked a lot on my spring cleaning. So this year to help keep me motivated I have teamed up with one of my good mama friends Kelly from SimpleHomeMom. We are combining a fun challenge to help encourage you to also tackle your spring cleaning with us. We are sharing some 15 minute and abandoned tasks that we know everyone needs to do this year. Below I’ll be sharing 10 tasks that will take about 15 minutes to do and over on her blog she’s going to be sharing 15 tasks that are normally abandoned during spring cleaning. We also both be sharing a couple bonus tasks if your feeling up to it.
We wanted to take a different route to spring cleaning and keep it simple. So each day during the week (we both take weekends off) for two weeks we will be working on this challenge our self and we would love for you to join us. We will both be providing a printable check list to help you tackle the items below (and on her blog). We created these Printables to be printed together front and back so you’ll have 20 tasks and 10 bonus tasks between both. So be sure to head to her blog to snag her printable to pair with mine below. So let’s get to the tasks I’ll be sharing with you and make sure to head to her blog to see hers.
