The Ultimate Spring Cleaning Checklist

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

If the thought of spring-cleaning makes you cringe, take a moment to hear me out…

Cleaning your house from top to bottom can certainly feel overwhelming. That’s why I suggest a room-by-room approach … or even an area-by-area strategy. Together we can demystify this process.

Start by breaking the job down into short mini-projects that can be done in minutes and that should quickly reduce your stress and make the work seem more manageable.

You don’t have to be a perfectionist like Martha Stewart, partly because she has a lot of help! So keep your eye on the prize—a deep cleaned home—and let go of any story about how long it should take or how large the project is.

And remember, you don’t have to do it all yourself either—feel empowered to delegate tasks to family, kids, partners, or even externally to a cleaning service.

So whether you’re a roll-up-your-sleeves or a kick-back-and-delegate kind of person, pay attention to any resistance that crops up for you.

That internal story about how long a task takes can easily become a mental obstacle to getting anything DONE.

That’s why we’ve put together a super-duper handy Ultimate Spring Cleaning checklist for spring cleaning that will guide you on your cleaning journey.

It’s the ultimate tool to get you started and keep you moving until your home is fresh, clean and ready for the longer days of summer.
