Think Spring…Cleaning? :-/

I think it’s pretty safe to say that everyone has Bieber Spring Fever.  If you are planning on tackling some dreaded spring cleaning here are a few tips to make sprucing up the nest slightly less painful…if that is even possible.

1)Make a list for each person in the family.  Even the kids can pitch in and earn something for their efforts!

2) Make two lists: one easy list (things that can get done in less than 30 minutes) one hard list (enough said)

During the week get 1-3 easy things crossed off.  This won’t take much time after work and physically crossing off those items will fuel the fire for the tough jobs on the weekend.

3) Reward yourself!  A clean house and yard should be enough, but let’s face it, it just isn’t! 🙂
