Spring Cleaning: Part III The Bedroom(s)

Ah, the bedroom, the beloved sanctuary of your home.  It definitely is my sanctuary it is where my husband and I throw all of our junk when we get company or we just can't stand the sight of dirty clothes.  Well, since the morning sickness kicked in our bedroom looks like it was hit by a hurricane.  Too bad I am so backed up on the rest of my spring cleaning that it might take another week before I can get to this room.  For you lovely ladies who are hopelessly devoted homemakers and are following along let's move on to the bedroom.

1.  Look around at all the dressers and get anything off of them that doesn't scream romance or relaxation.  A book you are reading can stay, perfume, jewelry, pictures of your husband and you, but get rid of the junk. You might also want to get rid of the pictures of your college friends.  I am guilty of this, but it is just so unromantic!
2. Get rid of the clutter, the paper and put everything in it's correct room.
3. Tackle one dresser at a time, dust everything.
4. Organize your drawers, get rid of anything (give to good will or consignment) anything that you haven't worn in over 6 months and don't plan on it.  This includes in your closet.
5. Pick up the things that don't belong on your closet floor and organize your clothes.
6. Sheets off the bed, wash, and don't forget even the comforter needs to be done once in a while!  Dry clean if necessary.
7. Wipe down the blinds and if you can remove the curtains give those a wash too.
8.  Dust lamps, antibacterial doors, windex windows and vacuum, vacuum, vacuum!

If you have more than one room follow the same step with all of these.

Next week we tackle the last room...the dirty bathroom!
