It pays to prepare!
Clutter, dust and dirt build up inside our homes during the winter, so it's time to schedule a little spring cleaning. But it's important to have a plan of attack to save time and make the job go as smoothly as possible. Before you get started, check your cleaning supplies and stock up and make a list of all the things you need to replace or fix and want to sell or give to charity. On the day of, wear comfortable clothes and tackle one room at time - it'll make the job seem a lot less daunting. Remember, it's okay if you can't clean your house in a single day. Don't forget to open the windows and let the fresh air in, play some music and rally the troops to help you. It'll make it more fun.
