Noreasters, this is your month! You've been living like a monk behind closed windows, it is dusty and stale in there. I am for the deeeeeeeep clean, erase the hideous winter!!.
Prune the closet and begin the swap to lighter clothes. Empty it, wipe it out, vacuum, and head to the dry cleaner with the super woolies. Leave a couple for that disappointing April day.
Tear the bedrooms to the walls, flip mattresses, get the junk out from under the bed, wash bedding, and swap if you do that. Leave no stone unturned. Empty the undie drawer, put back only that which is in great shape. Toss the "onsie" socks, or use them for dust rags
Tear the kitchen apart. Do the pantry shelves, the cupboards inside and out, wipe down spice jars, toss stale half eaten snacks. Fridge, same thing. Hopefully you'll swap ovens for grills, give it the once over major too. Polish and seal counters.
Clean rugs and carpets, at least the traffic areas. Yes!!! to windows too.
You get the idea. Just like spring brings the urge for some new clothes, it makes you want to freshen decor as well. You never put the new clothes on a grungy body.... it's the same with your house!!
