Now that it’s getting warmer, I think it’s time for some spring cleaning!  I have a list of everything that needs to be cleaned or organized and sorted that out by rooms of the house.  There are a lot of things on the list that I only do once a year, which just so happens to be in the spring because that’s when we moved into our house!  I also have some projects that we want to do around the house that I included on the list.  Some of the spring cleaning already happened thanks to me being anal and wanting to organize/clean when spaces just got out of control!

The kitchen was the first thing we reorganized and cleaned because it was just really out of control!  Now on to the other things on this list!  We probably won’t finish our “spring cleaning” until May but then we have an entire year to enjoy everything we do thus far!
