5 Weeks to a Clean and Organized Home Starts MONDAY!!
Join us on FACEBOOK
This is a cleaning rotation that lasts 5 weeks. You can continue to go through it over and over if you like it. For me, it has made my house in so much better shape than it was before.
First off, the list will say things like, "organize kitchen". This does not mean organize your entire kitchen in a single day while your baby sleeps. If you only have time to organize one drawer, do it. Try to pick something that will stay done once you organize it. Organizing the sponges over your sink won't do because in a few hours, they will all be back in the sink or in the dishwasher being cleaned and it's just like you did nothing. We are aiming for overall organizing.
Don't kill yourself. The goal of this is to allow you to spend time with friends and family, not take away from it. If you have a sick household, spend time with your sick kids and just do the bare minimum.
If you want to see the week divided into days, hop over to our facebook group.
