It’s Marathon Monday here in Boston today! It’s fun to relive that day a year later and remember all the amazing memories. I can’t believe it’s been a year. We’ll be out there showing our support today!
The weather here in New England is slowly starting to warm up so we took advantage and got started on some spring cleaning this weekend. It felt great to have the windows open and the fresh air circulating.
We started to clean up the yard and get it ready to plant our garden. We raked all of our outdoor space, pulled some weeds and started space planning for the garden.
I washed all of our hats, mittens, gloves, scarves and winter jackets and packed those away for next year. I love when winter concludes because it means I gain more space and less clutter from all these items!
We brought out our warmer weather clothes and went through everything, purging what we don’t need/want. We’ll make a trip to the consignment store and donation bin this week.
We started a bin for yard sale items. My family is planning another big multi-family yard sale this spring so I figured now’s a good time to start collecting sellables.
I cleaned the kitchen top to bottom. Really scrubbed, including the inside of the fridge. This is the time of year for ants and other bugs so I’m trying to keep them OUT as best I can!
I even took some time to catch up on cooking and freezing some GP friendly foods for myself. I pureed butternut squash, carrots and oatmeal.
So, all in all it was a pretty accomplished weekend. At least a good start to our spring cleaning. Still lots of other projects on the list but for now I feel like we’ve made a dent. Are you guys doing any spring cleaning? Any tips and tricks you’d care to share?
