We are embarking on a great adventure. The Busiest Moms in the World Spring Clean Challenge! I am always baffled by the scary checklists about Spring Cleaning so we are going to take this Spring Cleaning Challenge and turn it into bit-sized pieces.
If we miss a day no big deal. I mean the idea of cleaning everything that has gotten dirty in over a year is really kind of ridiculous, as super busy moms we just do what we can and by golly that is enough.
My biggest wish in this challenge is to have a home that is shinier, tidier and that smells pleasant. That seems simple enough, right?
General Overview of Challenge.
Each week we will fight clutter, organize when we can, and clean. Our goal for each room is just to make it look and feel better than it did before we began and kick Penelope Perfect to the curb.
Penelope Perfect is my arch enemy and although she creeps into my psyche every once in a while I usually can put her in her place on truly important occasions. I think we all have a little Penelope Perfect deep down inside. She is a real monster, that girl,and not worth our time or happiness.
So, grab your buckets and rags and get ready for Monday, March 5, 2012. We are going to have some fun and clean and organize a little bit on the way. Spring Cleaning should be joyful not scary.
Areas of focus for the next 30 days or so are listed below.
Bonus Rooms: Office or Extra Room – This will be posted as extras here and there through the week for working moms, moms that have play rooms or craft areas etc.
Every few days I will post before and afters of my progress and encourage you to do so as well on the Facebook Page or just by emailing a photo of your before and after progress. It does not need to be a whole room, just a little spot you are proud of and would like to share.
Come on Moms…. Let’s Rock the Spring Cleaning!
