Before you go to bed on Saturday night...
...don't forget to set your clocks ahead one hour! That's right- daylight savings begins this Sunday, March 14th. Before you start to get too excited about the forthcoming longer days, extra hours of sunlight, and warmer weather, don't forget that with daylight savings comes...SPRING CLEANING! Although no one (sane) particularly enjoys spring cleaning, it does serve as a good reminder to not only de-clutter your home but also to address some home maintenance items such as testing the smoke detectors in your house, cleaning out your rain gutters, having your furnace cleaned and of that other FUN stuff! I found this great checklist of home maintenance items to check at BobVila.com, and thought I would pass it along.
Of course, if you want some tips on how to CLEAN certain items in your home, who better to check with that Martha Stewart? I found this checklist on her website.
If you want to do your spring cleaning in a new home, make sure to check out Chittenden County's newest listings at BurlingtonVermontHomes.com. First time homebuyers remember, as of today, there are only 50 days left to get under contract in order to be eligible for the first time homebuyer tax credit. You could HIRE someone to do all of your spring cleaning for you with that $8,000!
