|Don't we all wish we could be her?|
Everyday my "to-do" cleaning list is filled to the brim and cleaning is not something that I just love to do. However, it must get done. It was something that I was always doing, yet for some reason it wasn't staying that way!
"Evan, why are there crushed goldfish on the floor?" (after I just vacuumed!)
"Pierson! I just cleaned up this playroom--why must you dump out every container of toys! (just right after we organized it!!)
|Wanna get organized? Get a schedule!|
But, the reality of it is- is that I am a mom of 2 boys that are 19 months apart and Boys will be Boys!
But, to keep my sanity- I needed a plan. Well, with this housekeeping plan (adapted-julie-style) it seems to be working. It's not that fun the first few days but it is getting to where my house seems to be staying clean
One of the best (and most common sense) tips that I read was to pick up around the house 10 minutes after each meal. WOW what a difference this has made in our house! My husband even helps me! I also have this schedule on my fridge to remind me what I will be doing that day and what needs to get done!
So, have you decided that you need someone to help you better organize your cleaning schedule? Go here to read more tips and adapt her schedule to your lifestyle.
Your family will thank you. Your husband will think your nuts (but secretly love it). And you will sleep much better at night knowing your house is
So, what is your best kept secret cleaning tip? Please do tell!
(REALITY ALERT: ok realistically I need to get up right now and go pick up, straighten the play room, do another load of laundry and pick up the bath toys off the floor! But hey, I'm trying and it has really helped me! Alot.)
