It doesn't feel much like spring now in Chicago, and looking at steph vixen's photos we see March snow in Tennessee, too. Right now you might feel like putting off the Cure and hibernating for a bit, but this is the time when you really need to push through. We're almost at the halfway mark! For a little bit of inspiration, we encourage you to click over and take a look at the Fall Cure's before and after slideshow. You'll get a sense of the huge strides you can make during the Cure, and why it's necessary to get over the hump and make it to the end. Take a minute to do a self-assessment, then let us know where you are and where you're headed in the comments below.

Weekend Checklist (Deep Treatment):
• Vacuum, dust, and mop floors.
• Clean out entry closets and entryway.
• Declutter your entrance.
• Move old mail and catalogs into the Outbox.
• Cancel unused subscriptions.
• Look into creating a landing strip.
• Arrange to have all repairs taken care of.
• Identify warm rooms and cool rooms.
• Apply the 80/20 color rule.
• Cook two meals this week.

Weekend Checklist (One-Room Workout):
• Research your shopping list.
• Make a list of the interior changes you're considering.
• Identify warm rooms and cool rooms.
