Who's ready to clean with me????

So, I don't really enjoy cleaning, it's not my favorite thing in the world to do! I always gear up for Spring cleaning and then only get a part done.  However, I LOVE to clean my house, top to bottom in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving!  I'm such a holiday girl and I LOVE any excuse to enjoy the holidays.  I did this last year, and it was great.  I started the 2 weeks before the full week of Thanksgiving and I cleaned my whole house-top to bottom.  I decluttered each of the kids' rooms, I scrubbed and cleaned and sorted and threw lots and lots away!  Then I enjoyed the whole week of Thanksgiving with crafts and food and family!  And after Thanksgiving was done, I had a perfectly clean house to then decorate for and enjoy  Christmas!

I'm starting again, today!  Who's in?  I will post a project every day.  I will mostly post what I'm doing, so feel free to adapt to your situation. I have 6 bedrooms and a 3 story house, so my list might get a bit long!  Every morning I'll post the project and every evening I will post a photo of what I accomplished!  It will be great to watch the progress and we can all encourage each other on!

I realize that not everyone reading this celebrates Thanksgiving or Christmas, so feel free to use anything that seems useful and discard the rest!!

Monday-November 8th-Sam's new bedroom

Today I'm starting in the bedrooms.  We are moving a couple of kids around, so this is the perfect time to do it.  I have already pulled everything out of the closets, drawers, under the bed, the shelves, etc.  It's all in one big pile for me to sort through.  This is how I deep clean-probably sounds crazy, but it works for me!  After I have sorted everything into the right boxes, I will clean the walls, the floor, etc.  I plan to wash the window and the blinds.  Then I will put back the few things that get to go in there.  Off to work, and I'll be back tonight to post a picture!

I'm a new follower and I love your scrapbook stuff. Thanks for being so generous! And as far as the cleaning projects, I need a little kick in the pants, so this is great! I do love to decorate for the holidays, and I do love a clean house, so...

This will be awesome to follow along with. I sleep mostly during the week. So no cleaning for me. I just have to rely on the Hubs to keep it from falling apart until I can clean on the weekend.
