I love to be organized. Nothing makes me feel more put together than having my day laid out for me so that I can see everything at a glance.

As I write this, I have been
reading devouring Sarah Mae’s new book The UnWired Mom. (It’s free for just a couple of days so go grab one.) I have had this post in the back of my draft folders for a while now. I saw this photo on Facebook and it really hit a hard spot with me — because I am that mom. The one whose schedule is too full.
March is now here and with that comes lots of Spring Cleaning — well, in my book it does. I will be moving to a new home again soon so I have more than my share of cleaning to do. When that happens, I like to create a list of what I need to clean as well as delegate who will be cleaning what.
I found some really great resources online that have already been compiled that deal with Spring Cleaning your home. These come from my favorite bloggers on the Internet, who are trusted and really know what they are doing. I use their tips and tricks all the time.
