Spring Cleaning Checklist Part 2: Days 6-11

We’re back as promised! And as promised here’s week number two of our annual Spring Cleaning checklist.

Depending on how efficient you are in tending to your household chores, you may be able to take on a few of these tasks in one day. If you can, that’s great. And if you can’t, don’t worry. This checklist was created with the idea that since we lead such busy lives most people will need to spread out their Spring cleaning accordingly.
