    I saw someone else say they Holiday clean not spring clean, Im one of those people LOL One thing I do is to go through my pantry shelves and gather all of the tops and bottoms to the plastic containers you gather (especially if you do takeout once a week or but lunchmeats in the reuseable containers). I match tops and bottoms, throw away any that do not pair up, and place them in the kitchen to store leftovers from the Holiday meal, and use as take home goodie containers for guests. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Whenever I spraing clean our apartment, I always run cut lemons and ice through our garbage disposal. The lemons freshen it, and the ice sharpens the blades! Gotta keep every nook in the house fresh! :)

  3. Marianne says:

    Every spring, I go through all of our closets and any clothes that we have not wore over the year gets sent to the mission. We help out them and clean out the closets too.

  4. Sandy says:

    My Granddaughter looks forward to my Spring cleaning because she knows that I freshen up my scrapbooking and card making supplies and she will be the recipient of my purging. I am currently looking for some new blood for my supplies. Hint, hint.

  5. Lorraine says:

    The best thing for me is to do my inside spring cleaning on ‘rainy’ days. I save the beautiful, sunny days to be outside. There I spring clean my garden. I remove the dry winter leaves and debris, so I can watch my perennials peak out of the ground a little more day by day. I decide on what annuals to purchase, and then plant their warm soft pastels. I take pictures of all of the spring colors for my scrapbooking. Then I sit in the sun and bask after enduring all of the long, cold, rainy winter days. Spring makes me so happy, and spring cleaning ‘outside’ is just wonderful.

  6. Gail B. says:

    When cleaning, concentrate on doing just one room at a time. That way you do not feel so overwhelmed.

  7. Traci Stewart says:

    Spring is the perfect time to re-organize my paper stash. Often times, I find paper I bought and forgot! I create a paper and supply stack to give to a friend who makes cards. She is happy and I am clutter free (well, almost).

  8. Julie T says:

    I “spring clean” my paper craft stash several times a year. It’s hard ‘cuz I keep all those pesky little scraps, but I’ve found my young neighbor girls Love getting a goodie bag of my paper, paper scraps, stickers, inkpads and stamps. I try to include a bit of ribbon and something glitzy too!

  9. jengd says:

    Start with cleaning the window sills. It’s so nice to clean rooms while the windows are open so they’re probably the first things you’ll touch when you start to clean the room. A cruddy sill is, well, kinda gross, particularly after winter “uck” is in it along with the plethora of dead lady bugs that seem to accumulate this time of year.

  10. Barb Sabo says:

    Spring cleaning…I would rather not! But as I love the sun to shine through, I at least clean the windows!

  11. Mel H says:

    Fold your laundry as you go…less wrinkles and more likely to get put away!

  12. Lisa Miller says:

    This is a great prize. i just realized the other day that I was running out of Red alphabet letters! Love Creating Keepsakes!

  13. Rebecca M says:

    I try to engage my 4 & 6 year old in helping with sweeping, dusting, and putting away their things. We put on music to help the time pass. When everything is cleaned up, we go out for a special treat ($1 items at our craft store!) and we return to a clean house.

  14. Carole says:

    I loved all the hints! Some I had not thought about…great. We do learn
    something each day if we keep an open mind. And speaking of mind…I
    would not mind being the recipient of this loot! What a nice collection.

  15. Laura McColley says:

    My spring cleaning tip is for those with animals that like to press their noses to the glass. It can be really hard to get rid of the streaks left behind so I recommend using a vinegar and water mix. Just spray it on and let it sit for a second or two Then wipe off with newspaper or a microfiber cloth. Works every time and doesn’t leave a vinegar smell in the house after a minute or two.

  16. Carmen says:

    Make sure you clean top-down so dust doesn’t fall from heights onto a floor just cleaned.

  17. Patty P says:

    A quick spring cleaning idea I use is focus on one room every 2 days. I start at the top of the room (ceiling) and finish at the baseboards. Only cleaning one room at a time from top to bottom keeps me from getting overwhelmed. Every 2nd day I celebrate my accomplishment. Happy Cleaning!

  18. Spring Clearning outside of crafting means putting away the Winter Wear, hats, boots, gloves, coats, as well as all the heavy clothing and bringing out the Spring/Summer Wear. Of course, being in MN in April means we’re not quite Spring Cleaning yet!! Spring Cleaning in my craft room means shifting all my fall and winter collections to the back and putting the bright cheery spring/summer collections to the front. Thank You, Creating Keepsakes:)

  19. Angela A says:

    Oh cool! These products would come in very handy! Loving those Westcott Scissors!

  20. carol says:

    I hope I’m not too late. I do love Fridays, I have a few days to scrap but certainly not to clean. I mean, who has the time?? kidding
    This is a fun giveaway and I could really use some fresh product to inspire. good luck to me. Thank you so much for the giveaways.

  21. dsellars says:

    I like to take spring time to go through my kid’s clothes and take inventory to see what they can still use and what they need new. That way when it comes time to do school shopping, I have an idea of what’s needed and I don’t over buy or over spend and I can get the specifics each kid needs.

  22. Shannon says:

    It’s time to put your hummingbird feeders out. They’re here in all their glory. Clean out the feeders from last year and fill them with four parts water and one part sugar. Thanks for the giveaways!

  23. Amanda says:

    We just did a special activity with our homeschool group yesterday in honor of Earth Day. All of the moms cleaned out our junk and brought it to the group to have the kids repurpose it. The kids got a chance to get creative and we cleaned out our old junk. :)
