Spring Cleaning Is Happening

If you are a regular Tales of Mommyhood follower, then you are likely aware how much I dislike cleaning. I have absolutely no motivation to clean (unless we are having company) and will happily do just about anything else to procrastinate.

A friend of mine was hosting a Spring Cleaning Challenge on facebook, so I decided to join in and give it a shot. I though if I had a group to be accountable to, it would help.

I was right. I have been on a cleaning streak since joining the challenge.  It started off with doing a deep clean of the bathrooms (one task each day for a few days) then the laundry room, and now working on the kitchen (again, 1 task/ day).

Breaking it down into small chunks has made such a difference. Since I can happily put cleaning off, it always end up being a big job for me. I need to get into the habit of doing a few small tasks daily, instead of becoming overwhelmed with the entire house needing top to bottom clean.

Also, spring weather has finally found us and I have been able to turn off the heat in the house! Not really spring cleaning related at all, but it makes me happy.

Happy spring!

  2. I split up spring cleaning over a few days. Lots of work but definitely woth it. A few sunny dry days too so we can finally air out the house.
