In honor of spring and since we’re all stuck in the house for the foreseeable future, I figured I would do 30 days of cleaning for my april challenge. Sounds fun right? While it may not be the most exciting thing, I’m really excited to try it out and declutter my apartment.
I found a few of these challenges online and took pieces from each of them to make one Frankenstein challenge for myself. This challenge, for me, is not only about cleaning but de cluttering as well. I will link these challenges at the bottom.
