Take the New Year Cleaning Challenge

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 the New Year 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 2019 New Year Cleaning Challenge begins on Sunday, December 30 with a Preview Week to get organized, check tools and supplies, and to put the holidays to bed. Beginning January 6, 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.

Next step, plan and track your progress with printable cleaning checklists from the OrganizedHome.com Printable Library.

Each day, we'll post a new message with assignments, tips and support. To follow along, visit the Web site, subscribe to New Year's Cleaning Challenge by email, or add our Cleaning Challenge RSS feed to your feed reader. Working day-by-day, we'll create a clean and organized home by Spring.

Ready? Set? Let's clean house for the new year!
