Spring Cleaning

Anyone else just itching to get some spring cleaning done?  With the weather warming up in our area, I have this craving to open up the windows and scrub the house from top to bottom!  Trouble is, I feel so overwhelmed. I'm not sure where to start!  Anyone have any good spring cleaning tips to share? What areas should I tackle first?

YES!  I've been tackling little projects here and there but I'm really in the mood to scrub the house from top to bottom.  If you are feeling overwhelmed, I think I'd make a short list of the areas that really bug you.  I know we have a counter in our kitchen where everything gets dumped and I started there, cleaned it out, and I feel so much better already!  Work your way down those *trouble* spots one at a time and then add more as you think of them.  Before you know it, you'll be crossing everything off your list and you'll feel so much better about the condition of your home!

Thanks so much for your reply.  I really like the idea of making a list and tackling things one at a time.  I really don't know why I don't make lists more often- they really do help keep me motivated!  I think at the top of my list will be the kitchen counter were everyone drops EVERYTHING.  It drives me batty!  Good luck with your spring cleaning... :)
