It's Time for Spring Cleaning!

Is it just us, or were you worried that this winter would NEVER end??! Here in Illinois we aren't out of the woods yet (Mother Nature loves to give us an April snow shower), but tomorrow we could see temps as high as 70 and that is cause for some celebration and maybe even a little SPRING CLEANING!

 Decluttering is certainly a big part of Spring Cleaning, but so is the seasonal maintenance that needs to be done in and around your home. To help you with this process, we've put together two FREE Spring Cleaning printable to help you get started.


We created these fun Spring Cleaning printable a few years ago, and we are happy to see SO many people still pinning, printing and using them every year! A friend told me recently that the reason she loves using them is because it not only gives her a plan when the weather turns nice, but filling everything out makes her feel motivated to get stuff done. And isn't motivation half the battle when it comes to Spring Cleaning??

You will see that this set comes with two different lists. The first is a blank checklist that is perfect for jotting down specific tasks to do inside and outside your home. We recommend keeping this list in your planner of family binder all year long so you can jot down ideas as things break or need replacing.

The second printable is a more detailed checklist with seasonal tasks that have to be done every year. This list was inspired by my favorite cleaning queen, Martha Stewart. She was the first person to ever suggest that I wash and store my winter linens as a seasonal task but I have to tell ya...I feel SO accomplished when I check that item off my list each Spring :)

As always, these printable come in 3 planner sizes and you can download them all {HERE}.

We hope you enjoy using them!!

Free St. Patrick's Day Printables!

Hello, March! It is so nice to see the word SPRING on the calendar and I only hope Mother Nature gets the message SOON :)

While we wait for the sunshine, it's time to start planning for St. Patrick's Day! Does the Leprechaun visit your home or classroom? Do you have a Pinterest board full of fun St. Patrick's day crafts and activities? Do you plan a special meal every year (my hubby can't live without his corned beef and cabbage)? Our newest one-page holiday planner will help you organize all of that and more!


You can download this fun printable in all three planner sizes {HERE}.

Decorating for St. Patrick's Day always seems a bit rushed with Easter right behind, so if you aren't looking to spend a lot of money on decor, but still want something to hang in your home, checkout our free printable shamrock bunting!!


This banner is SUPER easy to print and assemble. Just download this bunting page {HERE} and you will see that there are two bunting pieces per 8.5 x 11" sheet. 

* Print as many as you need for the length banner you desire. 
* Cut out your bunting pieces with scissors or a paper cutter.
* Punch holes in the corners of each bunting piece.
* String all pieces together with twine or ribbon.

And that's it!!! Cute, inexpensive decor you can make at home.
