Does anyone really do spring cleaning anymore? It was more of a necessity back in the day when fireplaces were the main source of heat during the winter and the rugs and drapes needed to have the soot shaken out. But spring is still the most popular time to do a deep-clean around the house, purge and organize (my favorite things!). And after the 3-month spending hiatus, I feel some major purging coming on. I did a bit during the last 12 weeks, but not nearly enough.
Martha has a nice Spring-Clean Your Life gallery which is based on the book Throw Out Fifty Things: Clear Your Clutter, Find Your Life by Gail Blanke.
