Spring Fever

For those of you in the Midwest, you know all about this snow that is PLAGUING us! Ugh. I want to wear gym shorts and a sweatshirt outside to walk my dog - not boots, a ski jacket, scarf, roping gloves and a headband.

But, since the only time I ACTUALLY go outside is to walk Cougar and check on the baby calves ... I shouldn't really complain. But to prepare for Spring, (which I hear is right around the corner?), I am in a cleaning mode. We're talking DEEP cleaning, scrubbing, vacuuming, SPIC-n-SPAN. Surprise Nick!

GG-Spring-Cleaning-Check-List-Printable1-e1363910165787To prepare, I visited www.theglitterguide.com. I saw their Spring Cleaning List on Instagram and knew I needed it. I LOVE LISTS! Download your own here.

Since I am working today, I started relatively small. I washed all of our bed linens - pillow shams and duvet cover included. But seriously, Saturday I plan on dominating this list. I love a clean house, and maybe I am a freak of a 23-year-old for being obsessive about it? Planning and lists, I AM ON A ROLL!

Another thing I have Spring Fever for is new stuff. It happens every season. I get a case of the "I Wants" as my mother calls them. So, I am budgeting, and deciding to save on the stuff I already buy. So lately, I've been couponing. Not obsessive Kourtney Kardashian couponing if any of you are Kardashian fans...

But seriously, TARGET. (Love that store, like a lot.) They have bomb coupons. It's easy to get their "printer" and just select the ones you want and they print out nicely three/page. Check them out here.

And to go with my new couponing habit, we recently got a cork board for our kitchen. Nick installed it last night (not by choice). But he also hung up my diploma from K-State that FINALLY came in the mail.

And of course while taking these photos, Cougar was BEGGING for a photo shoot. I can't that face anything!

So how do you Spring Clean? I'll take any and all tips.

Cheers!
Robin

  1. [...] Earlier today, I went to Target – only my favorite store on this side of the sun! Not where I always buy groceries, but I do really like their products. Plus their house brands Up & Up and Archer Farms are awesome! See how much I like their coupons here. [...]
