Spring Cleaning Challenge

Raise your hand ladies if you enjoy Spring Cleaning!  Hmmm.....not very many.  :)
Would it be better if you could win something fabulous like a new GE Washer & Dryer set?? 
Keep reading and you'll find out how you can win.

Spring Cleaning may not be your favorite past time, but isn't the result worth it in the end?  I love seeing my house cleaned and decluttered, but keeping it that way takes ongoing determination.  You have to be determined to keep it clean after the crazy whirlwind of Spring Cleaning.  Spring Cleaning is great to accomplish those jobs that don't get done on a regular basis:  cleaning under the fridge, stove, washer and dryer; cleaning the cupboard shelves in the kitchen,; decluttering bathroom drawers and the cabinets under sinks; shampooing carpets and rugs; etc.
But how do you keep your house clean on a regular basis?  Do you have a routine you go by?  A cleaning schedule that works well for you?  This is what works for me:

Mondays- Main Bedroom
Tuesdays-  Kitchen and Dining Room
Wednesdays- Bathrooms
Thursdays-  Living Room
Fridays-  Laundry Room and Porch
Saturdays- Kids Bedrooms

So on each particular day I will go into that specific room and clean everything in it!  I'll do the dusting, vacuuming, cleaning the windows, changing out sheets, scrubbing the floors, wiping down the surfaces, decluttering, etc.   Whatever needs to be done in that room I'll do.  That way I know when I leave that room it's completely cleaned- at least until next week.  :) 
This is what works for me, what works for you?

And by the way, I mentioned winning a free Washer and Dryer set, join the Spring Cleaning Challenge over at and you can enter to win these or other fabulous prizes too.
