Spring is in the air, and if you have Spring Cleaning on the agenda, you may want to check out some of the following blogs:
– OrganizingMadeFun is a great blog that centers around – you guessed it! – maintaining an organized home. My favorite segment? ‘How to have a (fake) immaculate house’?. This segment talks about how you can maintain a clean home by committing to a mere 15 minutes of cleaning per day, finishing what you start and cleaning while you go (among other things). It also offers pictures of the author’s immaculate home. While she seems a little super-human, it’s definitely something to strive towards! http://organizingmadefun.blogspot.com
