Do U wait until spring to clean up your cluttered rooms?

Clutter - Clutter in the home. Messy rooms, spring cleaning.

I keep putting off cleaning up, hauling out the vacuum and picking up newspapers that are littering the floor. Dang, they just pile up, hyou know what I mean? It's getting on top of me. Before I know it I'm buried in clutter. My other half is just as bad as me. He collects whatever comes through the mailbox and that includes junk mail too. He says, "Never know when I can use that ad." Then he flips it on the kitchen table and there it stays. I set my coffee cup on it and it becomes a coaster. The dust bunnies blow around the floor whenever the breeze blows in from opening the front door. It's just too cold, I thihnk to start spring clearing up yet. You can;'t even open the windows to freshen up the rooms cause it costs so much to heat them. Have you guys started your spring cleanup yet? Do you think I should?

I try to completely clean one room every couple of weeks. That's vacuuming in the corners and stuff and cleaning under beds and furniture. That way it doesn't pile up on me! My table is much like yours with all the junk so I make one pile then go through it once a week.

The only one I can blame my clutter on is me! I just have too much stuff!

I try to keep the house clean all year 'round, but cleaning lags in the winter...so spring's a major time for cleaning for me because of that.

I would lose my mind doing that. I have to clean as I go. If I see things laying around not picked up. That means there unwanted and hit the trash. I have to de clutter daily or I lose it hard.

I just finished mine. I don't do it during Spring here, but the week of Chinese New Year, it is when every family does, so I take part as well.
