Spring blows in with warm wind and the promise of ... spring cleaning? With the coming of spring, even the most casual home managers feel an inexplicable urge to move furniture, clean windows and vacuum baseboards to welcome the return of sunshine and warmer weather.
Certainly, there's a lot to be said for the notion of spring cleaning. It's a good time of year to rout out the dirt, dust and disorder that's crept into the home since the holiday season. By doing a thorough clean once a year, no area of the home gets too far removed from the results earned by energetic mops, vacuums and cleaning cloths. Longer days bring a new burst of energy for many of us, and using that bonus to deep-clean our homes seems like a good match for rising springtime spirits.
Then there's another point of view: that spring cleaning is unnecessary in an organized modern home.

It's Not as Hard as You Think
Think of it this way: If the house is clean - I mean really clean - it will eliminate more stress than it causes you to get it done in the first place!
And.... once it is done, instead of spending hours each week keeping it up, it will take a few minutes each day. This leaves a lot of time for enjoying the season, and removes one more item from the 'to-do' list for your perfect holiday!!
To keep things manageable, make a separate Christmas cleaning list for each room of the house. Keep the chores on this list simple. Next to each item, insert the name of a family member who will be responsible for that chore.
Because Christmas cleaning work has to fit into the existing schedule, plug only one room per day into your Christmas calendar. If you find that your family is more cooperative than most, it might be possible to do more than one room per day. However, on the calendar, keep your Christmas cleaning chores to only one room a day - even if it only looks like less work that way.
Make sure that each family member understands that these chores are to be accomplished on the day in question, and hold them accountable for doing so!!
