Four weeks of preparation leads us to this week. You are ready. You’ve Deep Cleaned, you’ve jump-started your Maintenance Plan, you’ve started a Laundry Routine, and you’ve planned the Cleaning Routine you are about to start.

So now is the time.

FREE Resources to help

  • Subscribe to the blog to receive emails when a new blog post publishes, like the challenge tasks. Subscribe using the little subscription box (mobile users –> scroll to the bottom of the screen ordesktop users –> it is on the top right sidebar).
  • Like the Mary Organizes Facebook page, because new challenge blog post links will be posted there, as well as other motivation throughout the week. (Facebook is funny – you may need to select “receive notifications from this page” to actually see the posts even if you like the page.)
  • Get motivated on Instagram. This is the place I post most candidly and in real-time. (Since Facebook purchased Instagram, you now have to select to receive those notifications as well – yay.)
  • Join the Mary Organizes Facebook group called Get Organized Today. This is an enormous and active group of people doing the challenge together. Have a question about something while you’re doing the challenge? Lots of people will have answers. It is an amazing group and the focus this year is on Loving our Homes. (**Please read and understand the rules so that you get to stay in the group. That group is thriving in part because of amazing moderators who put out fires most people never even notice burning. Not only that, each of them has a heart to help group members and can often be found supporting and encouraging. Thank you, ladies!)

More Help

There is also an optional Printable Pack available in my shop for anyone who needs a little more help. Purchasing this printable is absolutely not required to successfully Spring Clean with us, but I did work hard on making it a great supplemental resource for those who choose to purchase it.

The Printable Pack has:

  • a calendar of tasks,
  • checklists,
  • extra tips and advice that comes from a lot of experience,
  • summary descriptions on how to complete each task (some of these will also be available on the blog, but not all),
  • a Household Checklist (you’ll use this year-round for tracking annual maintenance),
  • Cleaning Routine Printable images,
  • and best of all, it puts all the information together in one place for easy access.
