Having a clean home when you have young kids can sometimes feel like an impossible task, and you might be wondering if it’ll ever be clean again.
The simple answer is YES, it can be!
We want to share some cleaning tips and tricks that you can do today, even with the busy life of a mom.
Creating scheduled cleaning days can help to prevent you from feeling overwhelmed and stressed.
To start, create a list of the basic tasks that you want and need to finish during the week.
By creating a daily schedule, you can focus each day solely on those items that are on your to-do list.
Monday: Plan your meals for the week, make room in the fridge, grocery shopping
Tuesday: Clean all of your bathrooms
Wednesday: Laundry & Kitchen
Thursday: The Bedrooms
Friday: Sweeping or Vacuuming Floors and Dusting
Saturday: Catch up on any needed task
By creating a similar schedule, it will help to reduce stress while keeping you on top of all the needed house responsibilities.
If you notice a piece of clothing on the floor or dirty dishes in the living room from movie-night, take care of them at that moment because it will help to save you time in the long run.
We recommend setting aside thirty minutes a day for cleaning but find the amount of time that works best for you and your schedule.
Then, each day, set a timer for that allotted time.
Work on the scheduled task for the day, and allow yourself to stop after the timer goes off.
If you have kids, make cleaning a family fun event.
By delegating age-appropriate chores, not only will you feel less stressed about everything that still needs to be done, but you’ll also be teaching them the importance of cleaning and working together as a family.
