Are you ready to tackle some early spring cleaning in your home this month? We know it can be a daunting task, but trust us, the satisfaction of having a clean and organized living space is worth it. And in an attempt to make it fun, we’ve turned it into a challenge. Let’s make March the month of a clean home, together!

Here’s the deal: the goal is to tackle one cleaning task each day for the entire month. When you look at our schedule below, you’ll see we gave you weekends off, but make this calendar work for you. If Saturday and Sunday is when you have the most time to tackle cleaning projects, move things around as you need.

You’ll find that we’ve tried to break chores down into achievable tasks. That way you don’t feel overwhelmed by the idea of doing a deep clean within just a couple days. The idea is to make small progress each day and by the end of the month, you’ll have a spotless home. So, are you in? Let’s do this!
