Spring Cleaning

It snowed several inches yesterday, but I am going to just dive into my spring cleaning anyway even though it doesn't look like spring here.  I started with easy rooms and cleaned the upstairs guest bathroom and bedroom yesterday.  I cleaned out every shelf and cupboard and it looks better.  I took all of my Christmas bags, ribbons, etc. and put them in plastic containers and got rid of seasonal stuff in the guest room closet that I won't use even if some of it is new.  I washed sheets, towels and rugs.  Today I think I will tackle the living room and the downstairs family room.  Since the kids are in school, I am going to wait until they can try on snow pants, etc. to clean out the coat closet.  I kept some extra snow pants and coats for friends or family that visit, but I need to go through them and see if they are worth keeping.  I got rid of a few pairs of old shorts and shirts along with lots of seasonal items.  I weeded through things and had about 2-3 grocery sized bags to get rid of.  You always feel good after you clean.

Are you doing your spring cleaning?  Please link below and share your successes as well as your frustrations, questions, etc.
