I’ve got your March cleaning checklist ready for you! If you’re back after completing January and February’s lists this one will get you into the garage to organize, purge, and clean there! I’m sure there are many things you’ve thrown in there “just in case”, and it is time to get rid of what you haven’t used in the past year and organize the things you will so you can have find what you need quickly. If you missed the previous month’s checklists I will include a link to those again below. I like to work in small areas each month so you don’t get overwhelmed and can focus on all the cleaning and purging that needs to happen there (helps me not to get side tracked). These are some of our most helpful organization printables because you can check off as you go, and even create a home organization binder to keep them all in to revisit each year, I’ll talk about that below. 😉
Like I said, I’ve created organization printables for every month of the year so if you’d like the whole set you can print those off as well, or start here and come back for those. This month is March and I thought we’d tackle the garage. Everyone’s garage has a life of it’s own. We have a 3 car garage and keep both cars inside, while the 3rd stall is used for my husband’s work bench, bike and lawn equipment. If yours if full and your cars don’t fit you will have a bit more of a challenge ahead and much more purging, but take this opportunity to set a goal that you WILL fit at least 1 car in this year.
For purging I generally follow these rules:
- If you don’t love it, donate it
- If you haven’t used it in a year, donate it
- If it doesn’t fit, donate it
- If it’s broken, get rid of it
- If you can’t fit all of it, choose your favorites and donate the rest (especially when it comes to holiday decor)
March cleaning checklist
Like I said, if your garage is packed full you’ll need to do a lot of purging, and using some of these rules, before you can tackle the rest but YOU CAN DO IT!! I believe in you. 😉 Once you’re done, or if your clutter is already manageable, print out this March cleaning checklist and get started. Here’s a black and white printer friendly March cleaning checklist as well if you’d prefer. You don’t have to do it all in 1 weekend, make your goal the end of March…I always feel better after a good purge and cleaning session.
Here are a few things that might make things easier as you go this month:
