Operation Organize: How to Keep Your Home Sparkling

It’s hard to believe that spring is only a few days away. I hope you’re as excited as I am for sunny skies, spring fashion, and fresh, seasonal produce. And then there’s spring cleaning… I know I might be the only one who actually gets excited at the thought of scrubbing and dusting. But even if you’re not as obsessed with organization as I am, spring cleaning doesn’t have to be scary.

One of the biggest tips I’ve learned as a lifelong neat freak is that if you keep up with routine chores on a regular basis, things will never get out of hand. So to make things easy, I decided to put together a simple cleaning chart designed to keep you accountable on a daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal basis. If you can spend just a few minutes each day tidying up, you will never have to clean like crazy just before guests come over or when you’ve finally reached your limit.

A few more tips…

  • If it’s been a while since you’ve done a deep cleaning, it might be worth paying a professional to come in once just to get you started. After that, you can take over and just maintain the level of cleanliness you started with.
  • If you have pets, babies, or dust allergies, you will want to clean a little more frequently than what is listed in the chart.
  • If it feels like you’re doing laundry too often, splurge on another set of sheets, towels, or socks.
  • If it helps motivate you to actually check things off, frame this list and then use a dry erase marker to check things off on the glass.

I hope this post helps you to keep your space spick-and-span.

Do you have any spring cleaning tips of your own?

Happy cleaning!

    I think segregating tasks like this to achieve home cleaning benefits is a great idea. I am so excited to see my own list next weekend – something cool to look forward to!

  • Home remedies of carpet stain removal are just not enough to get the carpeting up to par. This is when a reputable carpet cleaning company like McMaid can be called upon to professionally treat the carpet, returning it to its cleanest, healthiest condition.
