Spring Cleaning Prep - Week One, Day One

I'm tentatively planning to do my Spring Cleaning the first full week of March.  Maybe the last week of February.. I have not completely decided yet.  Today as I was doing my regular weekly cleaning (Mondays - Bedrooms &  Bathrooms) I started making lists of what I will need, some projects that can be done ahead (liking painting radiators and the upstairs bathroom track lighting) and generally thinking ahead.  Today I spent a little extra time cleaning the edges of the bathroom floor..  This is my list, in case it is helpful to inspire anyone else starting to think about spring cleaning.  :-)
