Spring Cleaning 365

Have you heard of Spring Cleaning 365?

When you sign up for their email list, you'll receive a daily email with that day's cleaning task. Most tasks can be completed in 15 minutes or less.

I received my first email on New Year's Day and so far really enjoy it!

Well... enjoy may be a stretch but for someone who really doesn't like to clean and doesn't have long stretches of time to devote to deep cleaning, I think this will be very helpful in staying on top of things! And a nice addition to the basic cleaning I do each week already.

One positive aspect of this project is the fact that I can participate when I can and skip when I can't. I like that it's possible to just jump in where you are without feeling like you're way behind.

Today's task was to clean the refrigerator, which I'd already planned to do this week before grocery shopping. We were out of town all of last week so we had eaten up most of the food in the fridge before we left. So the fridge is pretty empty.

My sister is probably twitching right now--she always comments on how empty my fridge is! And this is even emptier than usual.

No worries--the pantry and freezer are fairly well-stocked so we've been eating very well. But I really do need to grocery shop this weekend!

This was an easy task--take everything out and wipe shelves down with soapy water. I cleaned my produce bin as well; it needed it. Refill fridge.

Total time: about 15 minutes!

For my January habit, I chose to work on my office/sewing room for 5 minutes each day. In 30 days, I hope to see a huge improvement! But already, I can see my sewing table again!

Would you like to accomplish a cleaner more organized home this year while only investing a few minutes each day? Sign up for Spring Cleaning 365!

I so need to clean my fridge! I always mean to before I go grocery shopping and never get around to it. The email list sounds good - I'll check it out.
