Tuesday- Temporal DeClutter

WOOHOO.....Spring is HERE!
My favorite thing about Spring (besides the sunshine) is SPRING CLEANING......I'm serious. First sunshiney weekend and I'm opening the garage and gutting all the winter crap and buildup....you know what I'm talking about huh???? I found this great checklist to get you going.....it's from Martha of course...Enjoy!

There are few rites of spring more satisfying than the annual clean. For many people, however, the pleasure comes only after the work is finished. Your spring cleaning may never become effortless, but you can make the project more manageable --  and even enjoyable. This printable checklistoffers an overview of everything you need to know -- including information on cleansers, stain removal, fabric care, and storage -- to zip through the process and arrive at a happy end.
After you read through the tips and techniques, tailor the list to your home and yard. Create a realistic schedule, keeping in mind that a single weekend won't suffice, as you'll need several days for more involved projects, such as shampooing carpets and organizing closets. Whether you prefer to proceed from the attic to the basement or start outdoors and wind your way inside, focus on one task at a time. And be sure to enlist the help of family members.
The information on this checklist was excerpted from "Martha Stewart's Homekeeping Handbook" (Clarkson Potter/Publishers; 2006).
