It’s time to think about spring cleaning and what we might consider getting rid of. Anything you put at the top of your list for spring cleaning?
Dru Ann Love – I do year-round cleaning, but with spring I do a thorough purging of items.
Donnell Ann Bell – Yes! Please! I welcome anyone who wants to come and help me.:)
Robin Hillyer-Miles – I spring clean after the biggest dump of pollen has fallen. I start with the back patio since outside is my favorite.
Saralyn Richard – I believe in “spring” cleaning all year long. The change of seasons isn’t as important as the act of getting rid of unused things. I start with cleaning out old emails, spam folders, and computer files.
Gay Yellen – Non-perishable food that has been neglected in the pantry either gets donated or eaten (at last).
Kathryn Lane – Spring cleaning? Never heard of it!
Lois Winston – Since we moved 800+ miles not quite two years ago, I took care of all my spring cleaning for the next decade when we got our NJ house ready to go on the market. The only items that made the move with us to TN were ones we routinely use. Everything else was donated.
Lynn McPherson – I love de-cluttering. The first thing to go is always clothing. I like to think donating things I no longer wear will make someone happy and give the clothes another run.
Linda Rodriguez – Winter’s clutter. I can’t clean if there’s too much stuff in the way.
Barbara Eikmeier – I don’t keep most books I read so in the spring I donate a box of books to the Friends of the Library annual sale. Then I go to the sale and buy more books. Sigh.
Mary Lee Ashford – I love spring cleaning and generally approach it with great enthusiasm. Now, whether that momentum lasts or not is another thing. But in any case, the first thing that I start with is the master bedroom closet. Are there items that I thought I’d wear but as it turns out I just keep ignoring? If so, maybe someone else would love them and they go straight into the donation box. (Once the donation box is relatively full it goes to the car and I drive around with it in my car for a month or two, but eventually it gets to one of my favorite thrift shops.) From the closet, I move onto the bedroom and cleaning out drawers, washing and storing heavy blankets, etc.
Shari Randall/Meri Allen – I generally clean BCCO – before company comes over. The first thing to go has to be the inevitable stack of mail order catalogs.
Anita Carter – I love spring cleaning! I tackle all the closets and end up making a few trips to the local donation drop-offs.
Bethany Maines – I do believe in Spring cleaning but usually that’s because I can’t take it anymore. The first thing that has to go is all of my family’s accumulated crap. My crap is fine, but why are there so many bits of their things EVERYWHERE???
T.K. Thorne – I don’t believe in cleaning; I just do it when I have to.
Debra H. Goldstein – I’ve always been a sporadic rather than seasonal cleaner. I things seem like utter chaos or I’m in need of a distraction and can’t think of anything else to do, I clean my desk, drawers, and closets. Luckily, it doesn’t take much for me to things are straightened or to find another distraction.
