Clear Away the Clutter Readathon and Spring Break Plans!

My spring break starts April 5th and I've decided to 1. Do some reading (go Clear Away the Clutter Read-a-thon!) 2. online spring cleaning and 3. real life spring cleaning.

Okay, I know what you're asking - what the heck is the Clear Away the Clutter Read-a-thon?

Kate from The Neverending Shelf has this cool mini-challenge going on called Clear Away the Clutter. Now, before we planned this crazy read-off this weekend, we were talking about our huge towering piles of books and I said, "Well Kate, let's do a read-a-thon over my spring break" and she said "Okay.." and I said, "You host it because I did the New Years one.." and then it became part of the cool Clear Away the Clutter Mini-Challenge. So, of course I'm taking part because how stupid would I be not to?

So, I'm also making some serious spring cleaning plans for my blog, my email and my apartment.

I'm making a schedule and I'm sticking to it:

Day 1 - Clear out old emails (and listen to lots of music as this will take hours) and do regular housecleaning.
Day 2 - Clear out starred Google Reader posts and scrub down the bathroom.
Day 3 - Rearrange Google Reader and scrub down the kitchen.
Day 4 - Work on long-terms posts (aka Blogger Spotlights, Recommend Me, Waiting on Wednesdays, etc.) and tidy my bookshelves (dusting and all) - I may need to buy a new one!
Day 5 - Catch up on reviews (because I know me and I'll be behind) and clear the clutter in the study - file away stuff and whatnot.

We'll see how much energy I have after that. :)


  1. I've been putting off Spring cleaning because I've been so busy with school... I don't think we get a Spring Break lol. I just realized yesterday thought that my room is in need of some serious dusting!

    I gave you an award here!

  2. Yay for Spring Cleaning and readathons!! I love the idea of fresh starts and the hope that spring brings, best of luck to you in all of your spring endeavors.

  3. Wow, ambitious goals, but I'm sure you can achieve them! And I always love a new bookshelf. :)
    I'll be cheering for you; good luck, Kristen!

  4. It's always great to have a whole week to plan out and make lists for. We are ending our spring break in Hawaii, so I'm heading back to work. Good luck on your list!

    I've got an award for you here

  5. Good luck Kristen! I'm looking forward to clearing away some bloggy clutter myself :)


Leave some love!
