Nothing gets spring off to a good start like a thorough spring cleaning. After these major chores are done, you'll just have to do the smaller ones on a weekly basis for upkeep.

Here are the big jobs to tackle:

  • Wash windows
  • Vacuum window screens
  • Wash draperies, blinds and shades
  • Wash floors
  • Vacuum and clean carpets
  • Move furniture and appliances to clean and vacuum beneath them
  • Dust all knick-knacks and books
  • Clean light fixtures and lampshades
  • Dust cobwebs out of corners on the floor and ceiling
  • Wash all bedding, including mattress pads and bed skirts
  • Clean your oven
  • Clean and organize your closets
  • Store winter clothes away, replace with your spring and summer clothes
  • Give items you no longer want to a local charity
  • Sort and clean the cupboards and drawers in your kitchen and bathrooms
  • Organize your media collections
  • Sort through any leftover piles of mail and file important papers
