I can sense my dust bunnies trembling in fear. Beware dirt and grime, you are about to be greenly – dispatched!! (I’m really struggling to make cleaning fun…at least if I make it more dramatic with silly voices and all – the kids might find it entertaining and help out). Thanks Jenn!

I am inspiring green mamas to live more simply over at my blog every day until march 21st- Win free gifts! I will be recycling and inspiring other moms to live green at the same time! Many of the challenges are small steps to living more simply and recycling the junk http://authenticmama.com/?p=95
Here is the description:
Spring is a traditional time for ’spring cleaning’ in the US. Why not live this way year round? Living completely sustainably and simply may seem somewhat of a challenge. Don’t worry, you don’t need to set up a chicken coup ~today~ you can accomplish simple sustainable living in baby steps.

This is why I am starting this challenge! I am a self confessed book addict! I have books I have not used in months that others could benefit from. I will be giving my books away during this challenge (and there are some great ones)! Since I started this on a complete whim- this first challenge will go through midnight March 5th (tomorrow)- from there it will be a daily giveaway! This is my first blog giveaway so I can’t promise it will go perfectly (but who needs to be perfect right!!) Just leave an inspiring comment of over 50 words about your plans to complete the challenge or your results from doing so. The ‘challenge’ will be simple steps you can do right now to simplify your life- I encourage you to really participate! Hopefully your reward will be getting one step closer to fulfillment!

Jenn, thanks so much for putting this all together. Wow, I really hate to clean but even I am inspired after reading just some of these posts! Can’t wait to get through them all! Maybe we need a cleaning carnival every week or two to keep me motivated! (Just joking!) Thanks again – Lynn

Hey, this is a GREAT list. I’m kind of inspired to actually DO some cleaning! And I love all the alternatives and suggestions people have. Beth Greer, a Super Natural Mom, has all kinds of great tips in a fabulous book, “Super Natural Home.” The sub-title says it all: “Improve your Heatlh, Home and Planet … One Room at a Time.” What I like about it is that she lays out various problems and potential toxic hot zones and then gives really practical advice on how to address the situation. (I like solutions, what can I say?) It’s a great help in greening up the home.
