Spring Cleaning Checklist

Spring Cleaning Checklists are always huge and daunting….so that’s why I created my Naptime Spring Cleaning Checklists!  I created these as a feature over on Simply Designing for her Spring Cleaning Week, and now, I’m sharing them here with you!

When I searched Pinterest for a Spring Cleaning Checklist, I found a plethora of checklists alright. Mostly, I found the MOTHERLOAD of all cleaning checklists. You know the ones….they have 150 items on the checklist and will take a full week of NO KIDS, NO HUBBY, and NO ANIMALS to complete. I don’t know about you, but that’s just NOT gonna happen in my house! Although those checklists might be fabulous and NECESSARY, I just don’t have the time. If I print one of those checklists, it will never get started because it’s just too daunting.  

So, I created my own lazy girl’s checklist for Spring Cleaning! Using Oprah’s Room by Room Spring Cleaning Article, I’ve put together a checklist for each room, listing the things you can do somewhat quickly – during a naptime!  

For me, I’ve found that doing one room per day is very reasonable!

Are you ready to get busy cleaning?  Here are different patterned options for you to print and put up on your fridge for quick reference!  Simply click on an image to download.  Happy cleaning!

  7. Hi Melanie, I LOVE these checklists! I don’t know why it is so fun to check off the little boxes after accomplishing little things… guess it keeps me going to the next one. I’m pinning these so I will have them handy.

  8. These are perfect! Not as daunting as a huge cleaning list, but still gets the house clean! Now any ideas of how to get my little guy to take longer than a 30 minute nap so I can actually get some cleaning done 😉

  9. A tip for cleaning bedrooms, bathrooms and basements: Put anything that can be of use (pens, bookmarks, hair accessories, books, movies, etc) on a surface such as a toilet, bed or chair, leaving only trash. Throw the trash away, and vacuum if need be. Put away the rest of the odds and ends where they belong, and voila! Easy cleaning. You may want to do some little things such as dusting, sweeping, swiffering or windexing, but that depends on the amount of work you need done.
