1 Month Cleaning Challenge

1 Month Cleaning Challenge
If everyday you can spend a chunk of time focusing on a specific area of your home to deep clean, by the end of a 4 week period your house will definitely thank you, as will your family. These are broken down into weeks and then each task is completed each day. Make sure that each week you spend a certain amount of time decluttering different areas in your home, as well. Then you will stay well and truly on top of things. This is a suggested schedule for a one month period of time. You can add to it or change it to suit the needs of your family. You might find that you need more tasks worked on or less. Perhaps you have specific rooms you want to clean or even add in your garage or storage areas. You could also add in your front yard and your backyard. Another possibility is to add in the exterior of your home - the actual exterior - getting screens washed, scrubbing down your outside walls, cleaning rain gutters, etc. Make this as specific to YOUR home as you can.
