Spring Cleaning Checklist


I hope you're loving our Spring Cleaning Challenge as much as I am! Here's what I've tackled so far in our home . . .

Yesterday (April 1st), I laundered all our bedding which was a doozie. It took almost a full day, but when I climbed into bed at night my bedding smelled amazing and I'm so glad I took time for this one!


Some folks over on Facebook suggested I use peroxide to clean a nosebleed stain off our white comforter (see links tomy bedding over here), and it totally worked! My bedding came out beautifully and I'm so glad I finally tackled this project. I'd been putting it off for months!


Today I tackled the kitchen and family room, and it's amazing what just 30. minutes of solid work can do. My rugs are basically cleaned, countertops cleared, and electronics wiped down. I'd sure love to hear what you're working on today too!

In case you missed it, here are all the details and what we'll be tackling each day: 

This week (starting Thursday, April 1st), we're starting Passionate Penny Pincher's SPRING CLEANING CHECKLIST & BE AWESOME IN APRIL CHALLENGE, which means you and I are going to get control of our home, cooking, and cleaning to start off  April well! 


If you struggle with cleaning your home, finding time to exercise, creating order in your space and getting dinner done, this is just for you. We'll spend seven days sprucing up our home for Spring, and create routines that will last all year long.

If you have the Passionate Penny Pincher Home Planner (you can still snag the PDF files if you don't have them already!), we'll follow along with most of the daily chores in the planner, plus add in the items throughout the first 7 days of April.

(Print the free right HERE if you'd like)

Here's how the daily schedule *should* look:

8:30 – 9:00 AM Eastern Time –  Facebook Live Video working on our daily checklist and project for the day
8:3o PM Eastern Time (POSSIBLY! depends on family schedule, and it REALLY will likely only happen a few times each week) quick update over on Facebook with pic or live video of tackling our evening chores

And here's a peek at our “to do” list each day:
