Home maintenance is an important part of home ownership and the tasks can easily get overwhelming. Spring is a great time to put a plan in place for the year and jump start with some fresh air, dusting and decluttering. It helps by making a list of everything you need to do around the house and then categorizing by how often you would like to complete them.
