Good morning beautiful people! My heart is so full of joy because the spring equinox is this Tuesday! I am 100% ready for spring. The cold weather has been keeping me in a funk! So, in order to get ready for some much-needed sunshine, I’m going to walk you through how I plan for spring cleaning in my bullet journal. *This post contains affiliate links, which means if you make a purchase from one of my links to a tried and true product on this page, I make a small commission to power Little Bear Creations.

This is seriously one of my favorite times of the year; I’m finally able to spend time with my fam, take a tiny break from school, and soak up some (ahem, much needed) rays. What better way to make the most of this time of year than with a little bucket list? I keep an overall 2018 bucket list at the beginning of my bullet journal, but I like dedicating a page to the seasonal things that don’t really fit with yearly to-do’s.
I’m using my favorite notebook of all time, a Leuchtturm1917 dotted notebook in the size medium. This year my color is Anthracite gray, but I’ve also used a navy blue and dark brown journal and loved every one of them. The lovely pastels I used while planning for spring cleaning in my bullet journal are my Tombow dual brush pens in shade 603, and 020 (from THIS pack). I’m also using Crayola Supertips (which are fantastic for hand lettering—and cheap too!)
So, if you’re interested in seeing how I plan for spring cleaning in my bullet journal with simple lines and lots of pastels, read on!
After writing down all the rooms in my house and discovering how BADLY they need a deep cleaning, I collected all of my thoughts on one page of a spread. (The pen I’m using here is a Pentel EnerGel Needle Tip in size 0.5. It writes absolutely beautifully! Just make sure you let it dry thoroughly before highlighting or it smudges a bit.) I included check boxes to fill in as I clean the house to keep me motivated and keep track of what I still need to do.
My method for tackling spring cleaning is to schedule out a few days before I go home for spring break. Hubby has work and I’ll have a few whole days to get my house cleaned! I’m beyond excited, honestly. I can’t wait to shake off the winter blues!
The second half of my spread is some ideas my friends and I have been throwing around for a spring to-do list. Whether or not it’s super realistic, we’ll see. But for now, they’re really cute ideas of things to do this spring! Hopefully my spread on how I’m going to deal with spring cleaning in my bullet journal will help you as well! Let me know if you’d be interested in having the spring cleaning or checklist or bucket list as a printable! I’d be more than happy to make that happen. I hope all of you are gearing up for spring and taking care of yourselves! Remember to subscribe to my blog for free printables and exclusive content! Thanks for reading, friends!
