Spring Cleaning List Printable

Friday, March 11, 2016

I have a love/hate relationship with cleaning. I love things to be clean. I hate/dislike cleaning them over and over again. Sigh... But it must be done. I have been trying really hard to delegate as much of the cleaning as I can to my kids as they are getting older, but they seem to make more messes than they clean up. My main areas of focus in my home are the kitchen, living room and bathroom. If those areas are clean I can at least function. The school room and bedrooms are often sadly left neglected till they are so bad that I finally get everyone together to help do a big deep cleaning of them.

Spring seems to be the official season of cleaning and I admit my house could use some deep cleaning. I thought if I made a list of all the areas that often get overlooked it would hopefully motivate me to clean them. Because let's face it with 5 kids the state of my house is in mostly survival mode. I am just going for liveable these days. One day my house will be immaculate and dust and dirt free, but probably very quiet. So for now I'll do what I can and learn to live with and even love the chaos.

I don't know about you but I go through moods or spurts of cleaning. Somedays I just want to clean, clean, clean; wanting everything to be immaculate, and then there are those other days when I just do what I can to keep the house liveable. And then there are days want I want to do absolutely nothing! Though this sounds nice, there is usually not a day that goes by that I don't do some sort of cleaning. I try to be consistent with my main target zones so I don't end up getting overwhelmed; staying on top of the dishes/kitchen,living room, laundry and bathroom. Which really means I have to stay on top of my kids to do their chores and then follow along behind them making sure their work was up to code;P

It's pretty sad to admit but I usually only do deep cleaning when I am 9 months pregnant and in full force nesting mode. So that means that I have only deeped cleaned my house every 2 years. I am due for another baby! Since God hasn't seen fit to give us one as of yet, I am going to have to will myself into giving our house a good deep cleaning because it really needs it!

I have listed all the areas in my home that I am hoping to tackle room by room. Some of the things I have listed are usually overlooked and others areas are cleaned more than others, but I thought it would be good to just list them all. Whether it be dusting, scrubbing, using some good ol' elbow grease or organizing; I think it's safe to say that these are all defined as cleaning. I hope you will join me as I attempt to spring clean and we can motivate each other! Happy Cleaning!

Do you have certain areas in your home that you focus on?

How often do you deep clean?

Do you have a love/hate relationship with cleaning also?

p.s. My apologies. One of the words on the list is spelled wrong. I thought I thoroughly went over it but I guessed I missed it:( It's just too much work to go back and redo the whole thing. Such is life. Everything is not always perfect. Thanks for understanding;)

  2. Hi Rebekah, Thanks for sharing this list! There is so much new construction in our area that I'm having a terrible time with dust - I can clean the floors and come back an hour later and find more dust! It's an endless cycle! Blessings, Janet

  6. Hello, You made a very good list for spring cleaning! As your wrote some days I do a lot of cleaning other days I just keep it tidy. We all know as homemakers we have meals to prepare and we ones to train and read too! Yet, sometimes we do need a free day to just enjoy and be home and live content with what we have! I have been thinking of really de-junking this spring, but just the thought of it makes me want to take a nap LOL
    I enjoyed my visit here today, may all that you set your hand to be blessed!
    Hugs, Roxy
