Do you do "spring" cleaning?
How many time a year? Just once?
When do you usually do it?

I do a big clean of most of the house about 2-3 times a year. The kitchen I go through and organize about every 2 months.
The clutter gets to be too much and I go nuts cleaning and throwing stuff away. I started today and mostly finished my bedroom, just one closet and my dresser left to go through. Then I'll start alex's room, then the living room and bathroom.

Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.

Depends on my mood. Sometimes I do it every couple months sometimes only 2-3 times a year. But then my deep cleaning is probably a little nutty compared to most.
I'm really trying to get in the swing of the JM cleaning calendar so my house is always clean .
Currently you can tell where I am on the bipolar spectrum by walking into my house.. Disgusting mess, creepy no one lives here clean, or your average household.

Thanks to the awesome Rachel for my siggy!

I really should try that JM calendar. Maybe I'll start at the beginning of March.

Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.

I don't think my cleaning is every really very good. But I do 2-3 bigger cleanings per year. It's more like major decluttering and organizing though.

Thank you Vicki for my new siggy!

I do t whenever I get sick of the mess and clutter which is often lol. About once every 3+ months I will go threw our stuff and pick out the donate, keep and garbage items. Once a month I do a good scrubbing of the house. Once evey 6 months I scrub the walls down and such

I always say I'm going to, but never do. We really need to do a clean and purge around here though.

In general I keep up on my household cleaning very well on a day to day basis. That's all gone down the drain now that I am preggo and so very ill.
I don't usually schedule big cleaning days, but I do wash my baseboards, windows, do paint touch ups, etc a couple times per year. Usually once the snow melts, so like April ish.

This year, though, I have a huge list. This is a new house for us so there is a lot I want to do.

Major de-cluttering and organizing is whenever the mood strikes, but I do have a lot of it on the list.
