SPRING CLEANING 101: The Tools and Products


I seriously can’t deal with this cold weather much longer. Here in Memphis, our winters can be very fickle. One day it can be a perfectly cool jacket weather day and the next day you can be stranded in your house trying to avoid going out and slipping on 2 inches of ice that fell overnight. Well, after having 4 snow/ice days off from work the past couple of weeks, I feel like I can comfortably say that it’s high time to get ready for spring. That means only one thing to me: SPRING CLEANING!

Yes, I love spring cleaning. Maybe it’s because when done thoroughly and properly, you are left with a clean and de-cluttered home and life.  So, this weekend, it’s all about the preparation and gathering and/or buying all the tools I need to get started on spring cleaning the next few weekends. I plan to hit up Target and Home Depot to get all the things I need.

So, if you are gearing up or planning out your spring cleaning agenda, here is checklist of items you need to have in your cleaning arsenal to take on the daunting, but fulfilling task of annual spring cleaning.
