Spring Cleaning can be an overwhelming item on our to-do list, mostly because it’s a giant list itself. Lists like that leave me wondering where I should begin. We spent some time chatting on Facebook Live about how to implement a spring cleaning checklist, tips to save time and energy, and tricks to help stay motivated. This post is a recap of all the great information that was shared during our live party. We also created a helpful (and free!) checklist to help you get started on your own spring cleaning projects.

Are you ready to dive into your Spring Cleaning Checklist?

An efficient spring cleaning plan begins with preparation. First, spend a day de-cluttering your home by going room to room filling a box with items to donate to goodwill, and putting things that have been left out back in their place. It feels good to purge items you are no longer using.

Next, make a list of cleaners and tools you’ll need to get the job done and make sure you have everything you need on hand. Here’s a list we came up with during our live party:

We filled our Amazon Store with our favorite cleaning tools that help us get the job done efficiently and effectively! One of my biggest frustrations when I go to clean is not having the cleaners I need on hand to get the job done. I asked our party participants how they keep their cleaning supplies stocked in their home and they had some great suggestions:

  • I am a couponer and I try to stock up on cleaning products when I can, and usually have an extra bottle on hand.
  • I keep set of cleaners in both bathrooms so I won’t run out.
  • A ton of stuff comes on amazon subscription! That’s how I get diapers – they show up on my doorstep once a month.
  • The cool thing about subscriptions is they have a slight discount applied.

Begin Tackling Your Checklist

Much of the struggle in completing our spring cleaning checklist is finding the motivation to get started. Once we get moving, it is easier to finish the job. Isn’t there some sort of law about that?… an object in motion, stays in motion. Similar to that. =) Even after we’ve begun, our party goers came up with a great list of ways to help us stay motivated to finish the job!

  • Make sure to break down tasks so you don’t feel overwhelmed.
  • I give myself 15 min coffee breaks if i’m doing hours of cleaning.
  • I do my best to be rewarded by seeing the improvement.
  • I call someone and talk while I clean.
  • I listen to Podcasts.

While Spring Cleaning is a large task to tackle, it also feels great to open up the doors and windows, let the sunshine and fresh air in, and enjoy freshening up our home after the long winter. We hope these tips help you get motivated!
