But, in any event, Summer is coming to a close and I'm happy to say that the temperature this morning is below 70 degrees!!! I am so ready for that.

I have been trying to do some deep cleaning to get our home back in order. Each week I am picking a room, or area and concentrating my efforts there. Last week I worked in the main bathroom and am pleased with how it is sparkling clean. I did things that I haven't had time for in a while, such as dusting the light fixtures and much more. This week, I am working on the master bedroom. Saturday morning I even washed the windows in there!

Some of my best motivation has been coming from watching You Tube Videos by ladies who really know how to get organized and clean their homes. I will never have a home as clean as them! There are also some great blogs that motivate me as well. I just have to be careful to not spend my cleaning time on the computer! I sometimes take my laptop to the area I am working in and listen to the videos while I work.
If you can use some motivation for getting organized and in the house cleaning department, check out these links:

I made a detailed list of the things I want to get done in each area. These lists are in plastic sheet protectors, so I can just check my list and do a job or two before work in the morning and/or after work. I hope that after I get through each area, the next time around will be faster and easier. I plan to do maintenance so that the house will stay organized and clean.
Fall cleaning helps me to have less stress when the holidays come around too.
Do you do Fall or Spring cleaning?
