It is hard to keep a house clean if you have clutter everywhere. The first step to a healthy home for yourself and your family is to first get rid of the clutter and then you can get yourself on a cleaning routine.
Everyone has their different ideas when it comes to what organized and clean look like. There is nothing wrong with that what-so-ever. We are all different and that’s what makes this world so interesting. If you are like me though, and you like your house to be pretty darn clean on a consistent basis, then I have found a system that I think you might enjoy.
I have really been letting my house cleaning chores slip through the cracks lately and then my family and I end up spending part of Saturday cleaning. I just don’t like that. I want Saturdays to be our free family day where we don’t have to worry about that.
So, yesterday I sat down and googled “house cleaning system“. I looked over several and they all seemed pretty good, but there was one that caught my eye. I had to pay $8 for it, but oh was it worth it to me. It’s called MotivatedMoms.com. I purchased the day-by-day version and have been very pleased with it.
Basically, it tells you everyday what chores you need to do. If you are the check-things-off-a-list type, then this system is for you. It gives you on one side, the everyday chores and then it also gives you a special section for the extra chores to do for that day. On the day-by-day version, there is also a place to write down your menu, daily activities and a section for notes.
I printed out the next ten days worth and put it in my binder that I received from Menu Planner 101. Now I have my housecleaning schedule and my meal planning schedule all in one place. So far, so good! I’ll let you know next week how it’s all working out for me.
