Spring is officially here and it's one of my favorite times of the year... I love when the garden centers start putting out flowers and veggies to plant, wearing flip flops and most of all the warm (not yet hot) weather. One thing that I do not love about spring is the notion that we are all supposed spend hours spring cleaning. When the weather finally gets warm, the last place I want to be is in my house for days on end de-cluttering and deep cleaning. That is, until I found Simple Mom. She has a way of making spring cleaning, well... simple. Because this is her third year offering the spring cleaning challenge and she has done it differently every year, you have a choice of the way and depth you want to clean. For a full spring cleaning she has a 10 day challenge where she gives you a room and tasks to do for each of the 10 days. Some of the larger rooms like kitchen and living she spreads over two days. If you are not quite up to 10 full days of cleaning you can set aside a week to focus on specific areas with her three step process of de-cluttering, cleaning, and organizing. Click on here to read more about these two plans.
This year her focus is on simplifying your life and home and she is revealing a "hot spot" each week and giving you specific tasks and tips to clean out and simplifying that area. You can even post before and after pictures of your own hot spot to be entered into a giveaway... what better motivation is there than winning something for all your hard work! She revealed her third hot spot this week, so you can jump on in here to be entered for the prizes and catch up on the others later.
Hot Spot #1
Hot Spot #2
Hot Spot #3 (deadline for #3 give away is today so get to it now for your chance to win)
There will be 2 more hot spots, so if you can't complete your third one today all is not lost for you.
The thing l like best about Simple Mom and her plans is that she spells it all out for you and they can be done anytime... but what better time than the present to start!
