I love nothing more than a clean, tidy, organized home!

But those are three completely different things.



Spring Cleaning…Outdoors!

Irises -- Spring Cleaning OutdoorsI was just pondering why I don’t write spring cleaning tips. And I came up with 3 reasons: 1) I’m an organizer, not a housecleaner. 2) I don’t really believe in spring cleaning. Gasp! What? Well, with only a few exceptions, such as drapes and ceiling fans, there is nothing in my house that I would want to go a whole year without cleaning. I prefer doing a little bit at a time, all year long, to avoid any one cleaning project becoming a big nasty job. Also, I think it’s important to consider: How clean does your house really need to be? (Have you found your sweet spot between clean, tidy, and organized?) Finally, 3) When spring comes, my attention shifts to outdoors!

Now, spring cleaning outdoors is something I can get excited about!
