Hopefully you’ve been able to tackle a couple spring cleaning tasks this past month, but if you still have an area or two that need work, the Spring Cleaning Challenge is for you! This year I’ve teamed up with 5 amazing bloggers to create a Spring Cleaning Challenge that you get to customize to fit your specific spring cleaning needs. Since no two homes are alike and we each have unique challenges to overcome, we want you to make progress in the areas that will benefit you the most. So this year you get to create your own Spring Cleaning plan, post pictures of your progress on Pinterest, and be entered to win some great prizes for participating!

Here are the Spring Cleaning Challenge details…

1. Make a Spring Cleaning plan.

Does your house need a deep clean? Do you need to streamline your master closet? Do you need to get your paperwork under control? Do you need to organize your kitchen?

Pick the area that needs the most work and tackle it during this challenge. I’d love it if you leave a comment on this blog post telling me what you’re going to tackle as your Spring Cleaning challenge project.

2. Schedule time to tackle your Spring Cleaning project April 8-14.

The official challenge dates are April 8-14, 2013 but you can begin working now. Of course the co-hosts and I want to give you a ton of inspiration throughout the week, so we’ll be giving lots of tips along the way.

3. Take before/after photos and upload them to Pinterest or Hometalk.

We want to see your progress and encourage you along the way! You can blog, instagram, or just take photos as you Spring Clean. Upload the pics to Pinterest or Hometalk and use the #SpringCleaningChallenge hashtag.

 Read this tutorial if you need instructions on how to upload photos to Pinterest and read this tutorial for instructions on how to upload to Hometalk.

4. Follow the co-hosts & sponsors to stay motivated and get some amazing cleaning ideas.

The co-hosts and I will be posting about our own projects during the week so make sure to follow along:

5. Speaking of prizes…how about the opportunity to win some!

I’m sure you can tell from the image above that we have some amazing sponsors this year!! And I know you want to win right?

Each of the co-hosts will post details on how you can enter to win one of these great prizes on Monday, April 8 – Sunday, April 14. There will be some easy ways to enter. But here’s a heads up that those of you who actually complete your Spring Cleaning Challenge will have a major advantage! How’s that for some cleaning motivation?!

Alright…who’s in?
