So it is finally starting to look and feel like spring here in NEPA, I really envy those of you who live in warmer climates and already have nice weather! Today we are going to tackle another job in our Spring Cleaning Challenge and we are going to Spring Clean Your Living Room.
The living room is the room in the house that besides the kitchen gets the most use. I love nothing more than curling up on the couch with the kids to watch our favorite TV shows or movies, especially when there is a great snack involved. But all that use means that the living room gets dirty quickly!

Remember, each task is designed to take you less than 30 minutes so that we don’t get overwhelmed. If you get behind, no worries, new tasks will only be posted Monday-Friday so you can always catch up the next day or over the weekend.
