Spring Cleaning Month : The Grand Finale – Catch-All Week!
It’s the last week of Spring Cleaning Month! Last week was Blinds, Drapes, Bed, and Bedding – I shared some how-tos for blinds and bedding. Go here to see all the posts from Spring Cleaning Month and from this series. This week is THE GRAND FINALE – Catch-All WEEK!
This week is all about catching up on any Spring Cleaning Tasks and giving the house a thorough once-over to finish it up. Here’s my checklist for the week:
- dust all the surfaces in your home
- vacuum all the floors in your home
- wash all hard surface floors in your home
- sweep/vacuum garage
- sweep porch/patio
I added the Spring Cleaning Checklist tasks (link to the free printable is below) to my Homekeeping Planner (psst: grab it on sale and use the coupon code WHOOP for an additional $10 off through April 1st – this brings it to OVER 50% off). I plugged the spring cleaning tasks into days that it made sense with the Daily and Weekly Tasks. For instance, I’m doing the dusting on Tuesday – Dusting Day, Vacuuming all the floors on Wednesday – Vacuuming Day and washing all hard surface floors on Thursday – Floor Washing Day. On Friday and/ or Saturday we’ll work on the garage and porch as a family.
Here’s your checklist to get started:
- FOLLOW: Make sure you’re following along on Instagram @cleanmama

- DOWNLOAD + PRINT: Once you get the password (you only need to enter your email address in ONE time), grab the Spring Cleaning Checklist on the Free Printables Page – this is what we are following for the month of March.
TELL YOUR FRIENDS: Spread the word on your social media and tag me so I can share too! Cleaning is always more fun with friends!
WATCH FOR A NEW POST EVERY MONDAY: Every Monday for the month of March I’ll lay out the plan for the week, tell you how I’m approaching Spring Cleaning and then I’ll have a post or two during each week that helps with the tasks for the week. Make sure you’re following along on Instagram for DAILY updates from the Clean Mama HQ 😉 (my house).
NEW TO THE CLEAN MAMA ROUTINE?: I’m going to be doing a little bit of review and introduction before we get started on our Spring Cleaning – don’t even think about getting overwhelmed, it’s just cleaning and it’ll be fun! Look for a post on supplies, the Clean Mama Routine, and a SALE this week in the shop! You might want to grab this printable for a run-down of the Clean Mama Routine.

You’re welcome. Thanks for the kind words!
Have you considered putting a date on your printed materials? I’ve been “spring cleaning” my tablet, sorting files I’ve downloaded, and some things automatically download when i think I’m just printing. I try to keep the ones iuse most often and for offline use on the tablet (which is dying…..battery life low, non-upgradable OS, more feequest error messages). I still prefer paper to digital, for to-do`s – my mind has been wired that way for over 50 years. When i created documents for the health department there were often updates over the years (like the VIS’s given out before immunizations). It was imperative to make sure folks use the most recent.. I’ve just been adding it in the file name when isave it to my Google Drive.
