spring cleaning - part one

We all know that Spring is here! (Although I know it's still snowing in some places...crazy!) With Spring comes a long "to do" list. Plain and simple...I've got spring cleaning on the brain! My plan is to do a little bit at a time, so I can chip away at this ever-growing list, and tackle it all before summer gets here! For some reason, it seems much more fun if you take before and after pictures to document your progress, so this post won't be lacking in those.

First up: Austin's closet

I even tackled each of the drawers in the closet dresser.

I filled a large box of items that will either head to the garage sale pile or be stored in the attic. Of course, I'll have to save that part for another tackle! But for now, onto the next item on the list!

How is your spring cleaning list looking??

You go girl! I need to finish tackling Caleb's closet. It should be hard so I don't know what's taking me so long. I love an orgainzed drawer!

Bonnie said...

That is a great tackle.

Dresser drawers are not my favorite to clean...so easy to hide things in there.

Good job.

Look at you! It looks so great! Will you come over and work on mine? I am horrible about cleaning out closets and drawers. It's probably my LEAST favorite thing to do...

Good job my friend!

You made big progress! Way to go! I did some spring cleaning this weekend, too, but I had to send my kids out of the house with my husband to get their rooms cleaned out. They want to save everything -- even the trash!!!
