Welcome to this season’s “It’s finally warm let’s get some Spring Cleaning Done!” edition.

This week, ENJOY this quick list to get you on the right track before summer has a chance to sneak up on you!

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for summer vacation already!!  Does that mean I have Spring Fever?  If you haven’t already, now is the time to plan your vacation get away(s).  Weigh also the power of the staycation. 

Windows Windows Windows!  Let that Spring sun shine right on in!!!  I use an all purpose glass and surface.  Use what works for you, just get it done this week!!!  Do two windows a day, or two rooms a day, or have a marathon.. just jump in and shine away!

Out with the heavy coats and linens – Finally!  Send the coats, comforters, and quilts off the the cleaners, air them out, launder them yourself, get them ready to visit their summer home.  **Has anyone stumbled upon the new storage totes by Ziploc at your local Target store?  They are perfect for storing out of season fabrics in your home.  Keep your eyes peeled!  I have been assured that they are coming soon to a Target near you.**

Summer wardrobe alert!  Out with the old, in with the new.  From shirts, shorts, and pants down to underwear, socks, and swimwear.  Do it now before you’re caught with nothing to wear on a sweltering holiday!  Holiday weekends are sneaking up faster than we know!

Get your medicine cabinet ready for summer.  Could it be that we encounter more bugs in the summer?  Maybe it is because we spend more time outside, but we always seem to need more first aid OF ALL KINDS in the summertime.  Keep it easily accessible and up to date.  Check ALL prescription medicine, over the counter medicine, and topical expiration dates.  Make sure you are stocked up.  Don’t forget to replace last year’s sunscreen as well.

I want to hear from you this week!  Tell me : What is your major organizing dilemma?  What is your favorite organizing product?  What area of your home (or your office) is your nemesis?  Leave a comment and let me know what is going on in your corner of the world!

By the way, I have lots of neat stuff to give away all summer long.  If you have been reading my blog for any time at all, you’ll notice that I sometimes announce these giveaways.  Other times I just randomly choose to pay it forward.  At any rate, if you don’t comment, I don’t know you’re out there.  Moral of the story?  Whether or not you have the organizing gene... if you’re a fan of organizing books and products, or brands like Office Max, Ziploc, Rubbermaid, etc… play along with us this summer!

Snaphappee - I think you're pretty awesome for checking in with us every week! Thanks for being a part of the Organize With Julie Team!!! How have you done with your list this week?
Well, in my part of the Sunshine State, we aren't seeing much sunshine to shine in through my nice clean windows. But when Mr. Sun is ready, so are my windows!
