Free Spring Simplifying Printable!!

Hi there, I’m Ann Marie from white house black shutters! I’ve been blogging for 4.5 years (and following Jen for about that long!), have four kids five and under, and live in an old cute house. My goal is to share my journey and help you simplify your life, create a meaningful home, and make the everyday more enjoyable. With a healthy dose of keeping it real so that you know you’re not alone.†


My passion lies in simple things. And since spring is a good time to do some cleaning, I’ve created this free spring simplifying printable for your home!

I have a tendency to use a lot of words when a few would do. That’s why I like this quote from Jim Henson (aka, the voice of Kermit):

“Simple is good.”

It really is, isn’t it? When you edit out the noise, clutter, and things you don’t love or need, things are a lot more clear. You can enjoy your home, you aren’t as stressed, and you focus on enjoying the little moments with those you love.

This printable is sized to fit a regular 8.5×11 sheet of paper and would be perfect to display on a clipboard. You can even trim it a bit and add it to an 8×10 frame.
