For many, spring is a time of great excitement, renewal and promise of warmer weather and greengrass. For others, the word “spring” strikes fear into their hearts, because of another word that is forever combined with it: cleaning. Over the winter clutter accumulates, the floor under couches and beds have been invaded by hoards of dust bunnies and your fridge begins to emit a strange odor. Instead of dreading this chore, create a room-by-room game plan to ensure this year’s spring cleaning is less daunting. The experience might even be an enjoyable one.
Create a Plan of Attack
Any good general knows that you cannot march onto the field of battle without a well-planned attack and arsenal. Be realistic when planning this year’s spring cleaning.

Also, it’s critical to enlist your family members to help with process. After all, they helped make the mess, so it’s only fair they help clean it up.
