Take the New Year Cleaning Challenge

2015 Cleaning Grand Plan

Christmas has come and gone ... and left a mess behind. Looking around, you wonder how you'll ever dig out in time for Spring!

Solution? Take the Challenge!

Roar into the New Year and clean house fast with the New Year Cleaning Challenge from OrganizedHome.Com.

Based on Katie Leckey's Cleaning Grand Plan, the New Year Cleaning Challenge kicks off 2016 with a 14-week plan to clean and organize a spring-clean house.

Working in small weekly bites makes a big job easy, while printable checklists help organize and track cleaning chores. By Spring, you'll be ready to open the doors to warmer weather.

The 2016 New Year Cleaning Challenge begins on Sunday, January 3, with a Preview Week to get organized, check tools and supplies, and to put the holidays to bed. Beginning January 10, weekly cleaning assignments begin, designed to bring order to the house, room by room.

Each week, we'll work through a different area of the home, deep-cleaning and organizing the space for a new, fresh feeling. Along the way, we'll learn the skills and techniques needed to clean house fast, cut clutter and create an organized and inviting home.

Deep-cleaning the entire house is a big job! To begin, read the complete plan here, or use the week-by-week links below to view each week's assignment.

Plan and track your progress with printable cleaning checklists from the OrganizedHome.com Printable Library.
