It’s a perfect weekend for….Spring Cleaning!
Okay, Mom, I get it. I’m sorry for rolling my eyes and secretly loathing chore day.I finally see that your neat-freak tendencies were actually warranted.
As a kid, cleaning up is such a chore. It wasn’t until I have my own apartment and live in my own space that I realized how necessary weekly cleaning is, and I actually do it by choice.
*My mom is going to go HA! at this post because I’m not quite on her level of clean. But she’s never lived with other 20-year olds who consider dusting “optional.” (And by optional, I mean never-gonna-happen.)
For my senior year of college, I’m sharing a three-bedroom apartment with two roommates. Living with other college kids is always a risk; your styles will certainly clash on some things. Cleanliness is one of those things. Now I wouldn’t quite categorize myself as “Monica” yet, but I am concerned about the state of our apartment more than ever. The environment that we live in is a reflection of ourselves. Just like a fit body is reflective of an active health-conscious person, a clean and organized living space is reflective of someone who takes care and pride in their home.
SO. During a particularly boring class yesterday, I jotted down several items I needed to tackle this weekend. Pretty soon that list was a page long, and I knew I had a mega spring cleaning weekend ahead of me. And honestly….I’m looking forward to it!
Okay granted, the cleaning process is not so fun. But I actually get a lot of satisfaction out of throwing out old junk and clearing space. And I’m pretty sure you will too. Here is my Spring Cleaning To-Do List. Some of these are normal weekly chores already, but others I have neglected.
Then treat yourself with some fresh flowers and new delicious candles! (The Glade candles are so inexpensive and yummy! I love grabbing a couple every time I go to Target and lighting them for a little as I’m getting ready for bed.)
Here’s another fabulous article that goes into way more depth that I found on Pinterest, if you’re interested: 30 Days to Domestic Bliss.
What else did I miss?!

Your mom’s gonna LOVE this post! I just organized our pan and snack area of our kitchen, and dusted the fans. Today is dusting under Syds bed for your parent’s stay, along with many other Easter preparations and cleaning list this week. I love YOUR list. It’s so happy! Mine is in a boring old piece of lined paper. Maybe I need to change that! 🍹cheers to a clean house!
I love this list! I just made my own of things I want to get cleaned this weekend. I have a whole lot of dusting and cleaning to get done so I can enjoy the spring all organized & clean!
You know this put a great big smile on my face! (Hmmm, have I reached Monica status yet?) I have seen the transformation in you this last year and I love how much pride you take in your own appearance as well as in apartment. You hit the nail on the head; it really is a reflection of your personality and I’m so glad yours is bright, sunshiny and fragrant! I need to tackle my own spring cleaning and I think you just pushed me to get started tomorrow! xoxoxo
Wow. You are full of motivation and energy. Your Mom will say “Who are you and what did you do with my daughter?” 😃😃😃😃😃😃😃
