I have a confession to make: I am not the greatest housekeeper. *insert collective gasp here*
I really don’t enjoy going through all of the work it takes to keep a fresh, disinfected house. I’m far too scatterbrained to keep up with a bleaching or sanitizing schedule. I have visions of neat little baskets holding perfect collections of things in my beautifully decorated house, but sadly that is not my reality.
Now that spring is officially here, I’m starting to think about doing some spring cleaning and mostly spring taking-a-bunch-of-unwanted-stuff-to-be-donated. We have so much junk that we don’t need and baby stuff that either won’t be used again or won’t look at all current by the time we get around to using them again. There are windows that need washed, walls to be wiped down, and closets to organize. It’s a little daunting, to be honest. Just thinking about my need to whittle down the boys’ toys to a manageable collection makes my head hurt. I hate those kinds of tasks. I almost break out in hives when I realize it’s time to switch out the boys’ clothes for the next size or the next season.
How do you tackle spring cleaning? Do you have a big one-day cleaning extravaganza or do you spread it out over several weeks/weekends? Do you even bother? Is Spring Cleaning just some suburban myth? What say you?
