Happy April!

No sign of April showers here in Texas today and boy am I glad!  I just love spring!

I suppose that means that it's time for a little spring cleaning!  Here are a few tips to get you started!

1. Don't get overwhelmed!  Pick one small manageable thing to do everyday.  It might only be turning the oven on to self-clean or washing baseboards in just one room.

2. Don't think you have to do it all yourself!  Involve the entire family!  Even young children can help sort through a few of their toys that are no longer being used and it also provides a great time to talk about donating to a great charity!  It's a win win for everyone!  You get to include a life lesson, get rid of a few toys, and provide someone else the opportunity to have something fun!

3. Don't forget the outside of your house!  Simple things like washing out exterior light fixtures can make a huge difference!

4. Now is a great time to switch out all your air filters and get rid of all the dust and other icky things that have accumulated over the winter.

Remember, Spring is more than just a week or two!  You have plenty of time to do what needs to be done as long as you break it up into manageable pieces!

Do you have any tips that help you with your spring cleaning?  We'd love to hear!
