Spring Cleaning Checklist

BIG, crazy weekend plans over here - just kidding, it's time for spring cleaning. The apartment has been kind of a madhouse as of recently. While it's usually manageable to do the day-to-day stuff, like dishes, there are so many areas that need to be reorganized and decluttered. If you're in the same boat, here's the checklist that I am using over the weekend.

Dust everything: I am not the best at dusting. While I hate when it gathers, I find it to be an incredibly annoying task. At any rate, it must be done. Or else things just get really gross... and no one wants that.

Get rid of what you don't wear: A classic spring-cleaning task. I usually look for items that I haven't worn within the past seven months and let them go. Lately, this number has been getting smaller and smaller, as I am trying to hone in on my personal tastes and include a balance of classic investment pieces and affordable trendy pieces instead of just dressing in whatever is of-the-moment.

Reorganize your desk drawers/needed documents: Nothing like tax season to shine a light on how your desk drawers and your organizational system may need some reorganizing/sprucing up. I will be spending a good amount of time on this one.

Deep cleaning the bathroom: Reorganizing and making sure that everything is in tip-top shape is always needed for the bathroom space.

Deep cleaning the kitchen: Yup, even the storage underneath the sink. Sometimes you just need to look at this room with a keen eye for detail to notice some previously unseen messes - the insides of microwaves and refrigerators are perfect examples of this.

Scrubbing the floor: Even though I've swiffered and mopped throughout the winter, I know a good scrub is still needed.

Cleaning under couch cushions: I don't know how, but this area always manages to get so gross - a fact you never seem to realize or even think about until someone loses their keys or their phone and you have to search it. While it's a quick task, it's one that's kind of perfect for spring cleaning.

In other news, we got a new TV! It's in the photo above and has been SUCH a great upgrade. The gallery wall is also still being mapped out. Can't wait to share when it is all done.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
