I know that we’re a ways into spring now but it’s taken me longer than normal to get into my spring cleaning routine. Problem is there’s so many awesome, fun, adventurous thing to do here in CO that I just want to be out doing them. I know, I know, tough problem to have!
So while it may be taking me a little longer to get through everything, I’m still slowly working my way through. I’ve already washed all the warm blankets – the throws and the comforter. I’ve already washed all the winter gear – the hats, gloves, scarves. Though, of course as soon as I washed them all and packed them all up we had like 4 snow storms in April!
We’ve purged a lot, which I like to do seasonally. We have such a small amount of belongings now since we moved across country, so I’ve actually left a box in the back of the car and as it fills up I donate it. I just don’t have as much stuff to donate anymore because we have so little. This way I at least have a box full when I donate.
I still have a list to get through though. Things like:
- Wash all the winter jackets
- Put away the winter clothes, unpack the spring/summer clothes
- Wipe down any salt/dirt from winter boots and pack away
- Wash all the baseboards
- Wash the windows and windowsills
I’m sure I’ll think of more things to do as well. But for now that’s what I’m focused on getting done in the next few weeks. It always feels so great to have a fresh clean house, doesn’t it?
Have you guys been up to any spring cleaning lately? What’s on your list that I missed here?

Do you handle all of Al’s clothes as well? Poor Jake is on his own on that front! G

Nope! Every man for himself in the this household! You want your shorts because you’re dying of heat, you go hunt them down! Tough love, huh Gretchen?!
