Before I get into this here printable, don’t forget: Clean Up Your Pinterest Boards Day is THIS THURSDAY! Yahoo! I can feel the organization and inspiration coming back to me now….
However, I have recently come up with a system that works for me. It’s more of a maintenance thing. I still have to do a deep cleaning every once in a while, but sticking to this keeps things presentable and manageable. And…. If I keep up with it then I don’t have to do much on the weekends, which is so nice!
Each day I have one task, Monday through Friday. If I get that one thing done, I’m golden. This does not include laundry- I do laundry when it has to be done, and no sooner. The kids have to be on their last set of PJs before I will toss in a load. It also doesn’t include things like dishes. Dishes are never ending around here.
I respond very well to checklists. So for this printable, I gave myself space to check off each day’s task so I can at least have one satisfying “Check!” during the week. I also like that the frame blocks all the crap behind it. Doesn’t it look so neat and tidy on this shelf?
As you can see below, I did okay this past week. Vacuuming is so hard around here because all three of my kids- ALL THREE- are TERRIFIED of the vacuum. It’s ridiculous. And sad. It makes me sad to make them cry just because we need clean carpet.
Below is the printable. I hope you can use it!
