Great interview Norma!

I try to do a spring cleaning and a fall cleaning. Everyone is familiar with spring cleaning, and it is a great things to do, but I find the fall cleaning just as or more important.

I do it before it really starts to get snow and get cold for the season - before the house will be closed up most of the time for the winter. During the winter I find that things accumulate. I am less inclined to make trips out to the storage shed.

I like to pick up the yard before everything gets buried in the snow, too.

I rotate warm weather and ocld weather clothes and other seasonal items from the house to storage, and this gives me a chance to bring in my winter stuff and get organized before it is a cold and miserable task.

I try to do my spring cleaning before it gets too hot to do it compfortably, especially since the storage shed gets really hot in the summer and I can't stand to spend the time it takes to organize properly.

Doing it twice a year keeps it from getting too overwhleming.

Also, whenever I get a warm enough day during the winter, I open up the doors and air out the house, even if it's just for a few minutes. It is very refreshing!
