Spring Cleaning Plans..

All 4 children back to Uni and school today. 

The husbands back to work too. 

It is going to be kinda quiet around here now!!

Now the school holidays are over it is time to Spring clean and de-cluttered!! 

You can imagine how much work needs to be done after everyone was home all at once for the holiday. 

Days out here and there, nothing much has been done!!

I am so fed up with stuff everywhere and doing jobs that have built up over the holiday. 

Where does the time go when the children are off school?

Spring Cleaning Plans.

My plans for this week.

Clear Out Old Paper:

Chuck out old papers, rip up the bill that has been paid and get rid of junk mail. How much paperwork do we collect? Sometimes I leave chucking things as they need wrapping up and file them!!

Sort Out Old Clothes:

Clear out all wardrobes. Swap over Winter things for Summer ones and bag up old clothes for the Charity Shop. Clear out old clothes the children have grown out off, also clothes I can no longer fit into. Someone can make good use of things we can no longer wear. 

Chuck The Junk:

Clear out any junk or things that don’t get used anymore. How many things do we keep that we never use? Or will never use again!?

Find More Space:

Make some space. Everywhere. Every room in the house. Hence, chuck the junk and make more space. 

Clean The Garage:

Plan a garage makeover. Everything the children no longer wants gets chucked in here. Or if it is in still working order and usable, clear out for the car boot sale or charity shop. I would need a full week for this though!? At least a full week or three!!

Windows Cleaned:

Windows cleaned. Inside and out. I hate cleaning windows! But it has to be done. My least favourite job, so beat to be done first!? 

Up, Up Up:

Start from the bottom of our home and work upwards. Hoover and dusting. 

Polish all the mirrors! 

Clean both bathrooms from top to bottom. 


Start planning the garden. Overgrown grass needs cutting and I need to start thinking of planting some new flowers.

Here are just a few things to be done on my list. I am sure there are plenty more things I will remember that needs doing!!

I am going to be busy all week here!! I think it will be next week too.

What are your Spring cleaning plans?

    Good luck, that will make a massive difference! I'm in the middle of a gradual declutter at the moment so I'll be joining you on the paperwork and I'm also sorting through my bookshelves, passing some things on and making space for the things that I really want on display.

    I really need to work on my craft room this week! And my bedroom closet. If I could even get anywhere near done on those rooms, I'd be happy! Good Luck with your Spring cleaning. Love the tulips!
