Now that you’ve started wearing your spring clothes, you may be noticing that your wardrobe is out of balance for your lifestyle. You might have a closet full of dress clothes, while you spend most of your time at the park. I’ve noticed this with my own wardrobe, that I’ve got some clothes I’ve been wearing over and over, and some clothes that hardly ever get worn. Basically, I’m realizing that my spring wardrobe is a little out of balance. But, that’s ok. It’s still early in the season, so we’ve got time to take a look at our closets and make some adjustments to keep us going all summer with lots of options for our busy lives.

I love Sunday, don’t you? From church to dinner to a relaxing afternoon, it’s sometimes the only chance we get to just take a real break from all the week’s busyness. It’s the one day that most of us get to have a day of rest. Spending time with family on Sundays is how I prefer spending my weekend. But, what about those Sundays, when you find yourself sitting on the couch flipping through TV channels? It gets a little boring. And I can’t help but think about all the productive ways I could be using my time.

Happy first day of spring, everyone! I’m more of a “winter girl”, but I have to admit, I love the change of seasons, especially spring! It’s like a new beginning and a fresh start. I can’t wait to get outside, take walks, work on the house, the yard (well, maybe), and take some fun trips.  I also want to work on some projects. How about you? Do you have big plans?

Spring Projects


Sometimes, at the beginning of spring, we get big ideas that can drift away as fast as New Year’s resolutions. This year, I’ve got several things going on with family, the house, and trips we want to take. It’s a lot to get done, all at the same time. So, for me, the best way to manage several projects going on at the same time is to make a written plan. I’ve just made a list of my spring projects and that’s what I want to share with you today. I’ve got some ideas for how you, too, can make a written plan for all your spring projects and make the most of the season.

Are you ready for spring? Is your wardrobe ready? At the beginning of every season, I take a look at my calendar and my plans for the upcoming season. Then, I organize and plan my wardrobe for that season. This is a fun project to me, and this week, I got my spring wardrobe all organized and ready. I do this project every March for my spring/summer wardrobe and every September for my fall/winter wardrobe.

Spring/Summer Wardrobe



Today, I’m going to share the process I go through and, hopefully, you’ll be motivated and ready to do your own. I’ll warn you now, I’m very detail-oriented, especially when it comes to my closet, because it’s fun for me. If you’d rather get it done quickly and move on, then feel free to skip through to the steps that you need the most.

The wardrobe project that I’m going to explain today is my plan for putting together an ideal wardrobe that works for your real lifestyle, and makes dressing well every day very simple, because once you do the planning, the day-to-day maintenance is very easy. It’s a 5 step process of planning and organizing your new spring/summer wardrobe. So, set aside a few hours, and get your wardrobe ready for a fun, busy season.

It’s that time of year again. It’s spring cleaning time! Today, I’ve got a spring cleaning checklist that takes you room by room, helping you to get each room of your house clean, one step at a time.

Don’t overwhelm yourself by trying to do it all in one day, or even one weekend. Count how many rooms you have to clean and divide them up over a month or two. That way, you can do a little at a time, and still get it done before summer. If you’re short on time or feel your house doesn’t need a complete cleaning, then just focus on the areas that need it the most.

Spring Cleaning

For each room, start at the top. Then go around the room, left to right, and lastly, do the floors. Are you ready to get started? Well, grab your cleaning supplies, put on some music, and let’s go!
