Whether you’re a regular spring cleaner or want to become one, take a fresh approach to cleaning this year. Think about how much time you’ve spent inside over the winter. It’s time to clear your home out!

Pull out your Day-Timer® planner and create your spring-cleaning plan. This spring can be a time of transformation for your home. To renew, refresh and get rid of clutter. There’s never been a better time to tackle those dust bunnies, grime and mess, one day at a time.

Make Your Plan of Attack  

Write down what you’d like to accomplish this spring in your Day-Timer planner. It may help to do a walk-through of your house. Start outdoors and work your way in, identifying rooms or zones you’d like to give special attention. Then write down cleaning goals in your planner and set priorities.

Schedule Your Tasks  

Schedule cleaning tasks in your planner. Spread your spring cleaning over several weeks – there’s no pressure to finish everything at once! Some tasks may require several days, while others may need preparation. Just take your time to get it done right.

Here are some ideas to plan out those spring cleaning duties:  

1. Plan to Multitask

Schedule activities that let you multitask. For example, start a load of laundry and clean the blinds while your clothes are washed. You can check two things off in your planner at once!

2. Think Ahead

Save valuable cleaning time by planning certain activities that should precede others, such as dusting before vacuuming. No need to do double the work!

3. Communicate the Plan

Discuss expectations with your family and identify tasks they can help with. Capture your cleaning duties in a Day-Timer organizer so everyone can see the plan.

Remember: Trust that your plan is the best use of your time. As new tasks pop up during cleaning, stay focused and try to avoid the temptation to deviate from your plan. Instead, write down the new task on one of your Sticky Notes pads and schedule it later.  

Once you’ve put together a solid plan, your spring cleaning should go smoothly. The result? You’ll be able to relax and enjoy a fresh, clean, organized home all year long. You deserve it!
