I could see how a new coat of paint could perk up the house for the winter. Organization and decluttering I think makes the home more comfortable for sure.
I feel the same, I am always on the go in the warm months, but in the winter a change of furniture and a deep clean make the cabin fever more tolerable.

Totally agree, most of what people do for "spring" cleaning I do on warmer fall days - opening all the windows, airing out mattresses etc.

I live downstate from you a few hours, our winters aren't as brutal as yours usually but I know what you mean about extended time indoors! germs are another consideration too.
getting out the holiday decor can definitely be a good time to dig in and do some organizing. I find I never get the motivation, I have to just do it :)
To get myself to clean I cannot read another chapter in a book until I pick up and put away a certain amount of items. Usually I set it at 100, could be clothes dishes, scraps of paper that didn't make it to garbage bag and so on
