Does anyone feel like this picture accurately describes basically every aspect of their life? 😉 You’re doing one thing only to repeat it over and over again because well, Mom life. Seriously though, why do kids think it’s the funniest thing ever to push their entire face against the dang windows and typically as you’re cleaning them or within a couple of minutes of them being cleaned.
Anyways – summer is here and while I LOVE this season, it brings a whole lot of chaos. SO I decided I was going to set some goals, plans and schedules this summer to try and make things run somewhat smoother. (fingers crossed). I put my little fridge schedule magnets to full use, gave each day a “chore” and have been doing my best to follow a dinner menu rather than eating out every day…whoops. I’ve found though, that if I make a game plan for dinners each Sunday, then pick up groceries Monday morning. That way I know we have everything needed for each dinner, it works out really well. So i’ve just kind of gotten into that mode of groceries ordered Sunday night, pick up Monday morning, etc. and it’s worked well so far (knock on wood).
But I thought I’d share a breakdown of what our “chores” AKA cleaning schedule looks like, especially during the summer because I feel like it’s so much harder to keep on top of those things this time of year. Then after, I’m sharing details on some new cleaning products I’ve loved + giving some away. Oh AND I have a discount code for you. 😉
WEEKLY CHORE BREAKDOWN:
MONDAY: Kitchen (this means counters, stovetop, microwave, all the things in the kitchen cleaned) and the oven cleaner + stainless steel cleaner from Sprayway comes in hand big time on this day!
TUESDAY: Floors (ALL THE FLOORS, hardwood downstairs, carpet, literally all the floors vacuumed, swept + mopped except for bathrooms)
WEDNESDAY: Bathrooms (my least favorite day, but cleaning all the bathrooms top to bottom) – multipurpose surface cleaner from Sprayway is a must in this room!
THURSDAY: Dusting + wiping down (dusting all the things, wiping off tables, dressers, etc. just a quick wipe down of the house)
FRIDAY: Laundry (obviously we have laundry throughout the rest of the week, but this is the day I try to make sure it’s all tackled, clean slate for the weekend + everything gets put away)
SATURDAY: Lawn Day (you know, mowing, weeds, etc.)
This has worked really well so far in our house + it’s just nice to have a schedule. I’ve just set a little bit of a rule for myself that I can’t go to bed until that day’s chores are done! Plus, I really rely on the help of my husband (and even Blake helps sometimes) when he is able to help. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. 😉
NOW CLEANING PRODUCTS:
So I recently (about a month ago) was introduced to Sprayway Cleaners and well, they do NOT disappoint. I’m especially obsessed with their glass cleaner, stainless steel cleaner +multi-purpose surface cleaner. No joke, haven’t used better, especially that stainless steel cleaner. They actually manufacture a complete line of industrial, automotive and housekeeping products and have since 1947, so they know their stuff. They take safety from production to manufacturing seriously and their glass cleaner has kind of become known as “world’s best”, which I mentioned before is a new favorite. A little goes a long way and it literally gets our windows clean in like one wipe.
