Spring cleaning doesn't happen just in one weekend. Well, it can, but boy, will you be exhausted after you are done. I like to do these tasks over several weekends or even a bit each day. Doing these jobs a part of the day for the next 30 days or longer will help manage the time more efficiently. You do not need to do these tasks in this exact order. Below we share out Spring Cleaning Challenge. The list below can be made when the weather or temperature is appropriate to do the task. Be patient and work through the 30 days of spring cleaning tasks, and you will complete them. Here we go:
