Since Spring Cleaning is upon us, I originally thought I would make a checklist to help guide the process. Well, it turns out, that subject has been VERY well covered by other awesome blogs! No need for me to reinvent the wheel. So I figured I would share my favorites, and made my green spring cleaning toolkit instead.
These 5 checklists are all great for different reasons. I’ll explain why I picked each of them. There’s a little something for everyone- they are each organized in a different way. You will definitely find something that suits your style. If you’re on the market for a spring cleaning checklist, each of these has a different great approach.
So check them out and see which one is right for you!
To me, this seems like the classic approach. Tackle one room at a time and check each thing off one at a time. I love that Glitter Guide includes a list of supplies as well. The other thing I love about this list is that it includes closets as its own category- it is so easy to overlook them.
Pop Sugar’s checklist might be my personal favorite. 30 Days, 1 task a day. That seems really manageable to me. Spring cleaning always feels overwhelming. Doing one small(ish) task a day for 30 days to a freshly cleaned house? Totally doable.
For you overachievers, you can finish your spring cleaning in a week. I know I couldn’t hold myself to this list. I love that it includes outdoor tasks as well. This has so many items to check off that I wouldn’t remember myself. Definitely thorough.
Living Well Spending Less’s checklist has a unique approach. Top to bottom- attack the highest items first and work down to the floors. It makes so much sense because the higher stuff stirs up dust and junk that settles on the floor. I know I usually work with what is in reach first, but I think I might have to try this method out.
Clean Mama’s list lets you choose how much you want to do. Start with basics? Awesome. Traditional spring cleaning? Makes sense, this is a spring cleaning checklist. Bonuses? For you overachievers out there! For the busiest people, this list lets you prioritize what to clean.
Which checklist do you like the best? Let me know!
