Spring has sprung. Well, almost. It’ll be here before we know it, which means it’s time to start that dreaded spring cleaning checklist. I know it can be quite the feat to clean up and clear out all the rooms in your home. But once you do, it’s such a great feeling! And luckily, we only have to do this in-depth task once a year. Since we’re all busy mamas who can always use some guidance, here’s the ultimate spring cleaning checklist for every room in your house.

I’ve broken this checklist down into two separate categories for each room: toss and tackle. The items on the toss list are the things to get rid of. Tackle is everything you should clean or organize.

I'm a wife, mother and everything else associated with domestic life. I can often be found hiding from my kids to sneak treats (especially ice cream). I love rainbows and naps, and I find any excuse to go to Target. When I actually make it out of the house in real clothes, I document my outfits on my fashion blog, Leather & Lip Gloss. My love for fashion also inspired me to start my own comprehensive style website, The Style Spectrum.
