It's almost time to begin your spring cleaning! If you're thinking it may be a little early to start, many have learned the hard way that deep cleaning takes longer than expected. Get a jump start this year and begin sooner rather than later in order to have a spotless home for the new season. While you may be dreading this task, we have created the perfect checklist to help make your cleaning experience as efficient as possible!

Hello friends! Last week, I made my first purchase through the Grove Collaborative. My items arrived in just a couple of days. I am so excited to get products I already use plus a few more I have been wanting to try delivered right to my door. Plus, some of these items were free with my first purchase. If you have been thinking about trying any of these products or are already using them and would love front door delivery, please use the link in my profile to get started. With this link, you will receive $10 off your first order. #grovecollaborative #grovehome #homedecor #cleaningsupplies #farmhousedecor #farmhousestyle #fauxwreath #rusticfarmhouse #rusticdecor #cleanhome #cleanhomeisahappyhome #yestotomatoes #method #mrsmeyerscleanday

We have found that it is easiest to separate your tasks by room. Instead of trying to jump room to room wiping counters and decluttering unused items, it's most efficient to complete location-based tasks in one day. Many also highly recommend spreading this process out over a few days. For example, you can do all the bathrooms on Monday, bedrooms Tuesday and so on and so forth. This way you won't get burnt out trying to get it all done in one day. If you're looking for an efficient cleaning plan, screen shot the list below for easy spring cleaning!
