Spring cleaning

We're about a week from Spring, but with Daylight Savings in effect and the beautiful warm weather we've been having, I feel like spring has sprung! I love spring! It just feels new and fresh and those buds on the trees get me every year! Plus, with birthdays and an anniversary it just feels like a time of celebration.

Thanks to the bright sun coming in through my windows, I've been feeling the desperate need to spring clean! That, combined with the fact that we'll be moving in just 3+ short months, has me feeling frantic about getting the place in shape and purging everything that I can to move with much less than we've accumulated in the past 4 years that we've lived here.

Nicholas and I just finished cleaning the kids room. I have a feeling that's cleaning/downsizing #1 of many. I filled a bag full of toys that they no longer need or don't play with to donate to our church plant (3 weeks from now!!) but know there's more we don't need.

My goal, so that I don't start getting overwhelmed and frustrated, is to take one area at a time and not push myself to get it all done in 1-2 days. That's usually my approach and I loose steam very quickly.

Since we're homeschooling now, my next project is our craft cabinet and all the supplies that I don't currently have room for. Pinterest can be so helpful when needing organization and here are a couple of ideas I have for this area of our life:
