May 13, 2011 - PRLog -- Love it or hate it, spring cleaning has arrived. 77% of Americans say they regularly engage in spring cleaning, according to The Soap and Detergent Association’s (SDA) 2008 Spring Cleaning Survey. High on the spring cleaning to-do list: organizing and filing. The National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), state that getting rid of clutter eliminates 40% of housework in an average home because 80% of what we keep, we never use.
