Spring Cleaning Checklist: A Room-by-Room Guide

As the winter chill begins to fade away, it’s time to shake off the dust and get ready for a good spring cleaning! I know it’s not the funest thing to do, but with a new season comes new beginnings and it’s the perfect time to get your home in order! sometimes it can be a little overwhelming, and you have no idea where to begin, that’s why I’ve created these free printables with checklists, to make everything much easier. I enjoy using a checklist, so you know where you left off and you don’t feel like you have to do it all in one day.

For me, having a list of tasks written down and being able to place a checkmark after it, once I’ve completed it, gives me a sense of accomplishment. To this day I still write down my to-do’s, my grocery lists, and my day-to-day intentions, there is something so satisfying about crossing those things off once completed.  So to all those who walk around the grocery store with their handwritten lists, I see you! 

I have made a few printables for you so you can choose which one works best for you.   Completing everything on this list will give you a thorough cleaning, getting every room of the house. If you feel like these don’t work for you, no problem.  I have a blank one where you can write down your chores and check them off once completed.  I will say every Spring I do a reset and Set my Intentions and begin by cleaning out my closet. So take a moment to reflect on your goals!
