So it is time for some Spring Cleaning in my house. I thought why not share tips and resources I use or find in my quest to finally tackle a household of 6 mess. Have you done any Spring Cleaning in your home yet this year? Today’s Blog topic is all about on the go and cleaning our your car and purse.

So the same things goes as every room in our house we need to get rid of the clutter and the trash first. If you don’t need it or want it give it away, throw it in the trash, or put it where it belongs.

As I talked about in Spring Cleaning Part 2: What do I need? I have a sorting system I label GTSM for Giveaway, Trash, Store, or Move. I start every room with that first. I go through to find any broken items, can’t fit, or  I no longer want or need to giveaway or trash. Anything that doesn’t belong in that room I decide if it needs to be moved or stored somewhere else. Then I start on the cleaning of all these areas from top to bottom.

I have a daughter that is a clean freak, I mean like when she comes to visit we all clean before she arrives and she re-cleans it while she is here. No kidding! But, her car remains a mystery to me, because it is a total mess! It looks as if she has lived out of it for a month. Now I’m not saying that our car looks great it could always use a good cleaning after we get the crap out of it that doesn’t belong. So I found some tips for you to clean and organize.
