Spring cleaning and I have a love/hate relationship. I hate to do it, but I love the way I feel, once it’s done. I’m sure you all can relate. Well fab housewives, it’s that time again, and thanks to these ideas and links, our homes are going to sparkle like new.

Go through closets, drawers, cabinets, boxes, and get rid anything you don’t need. Not sure if you should toss it? Ask yourself this: have I used this in the past 6 months?

But I think it’s safe to say, every woman dreads that horrible moment when you realize, you are so last season!
