Between crafts, school papers, and reminders our refrigerator gets overcrowded VERY easily. I love to see my kids’ art work and have it proudly displayed. When it falls of in layers each time we walk past the fridge or open the door though, you know there’s a problem. We have found a simple way to show off their art, and enjoy a clean and clutter-free fridge at the same time. [Read more…]
This year we decided that in order to keep bedrooms looking fairly tidy, the first Saturday of each month is Deep Clean Bedroom Saturday. (please insert child groans).
I found that when I asked my kids to clean their rooms, they looked at me in a semi-confused manner. “Tidy Room” is part of their daily routine, but sometimes the ‘tidy’ aspect became a ‘cram and stuff’ routine. By doing a more regular deep clean, we have found the room clutter to be much more manageable. [Read more…]
Are you ready for the Deep Clean Challenge for this month? March is the month to deep clean bedrooms. I posted about this before, but I have updated the checklists to make it even easier than before this month.
If you are new to the Deep Cleaning Challenges, you can check out January and February to get all caught up. I usually rotate through different rooms in my house organizing and keeping things from getting too dirty. This time around has been different though as I am trying my hand at applying the KonMari Method to my deep cleaning. It has been incredibly freeing, and I hope you find the results to be the same for you!
I have a Home Binder that includes all sorts of charts to help keep me organized. The Deep Cleaning Checklists are by far my most used portion of my notebook. When the month turns over, I check which rotation I am on and get to work. By now I have a pretty good idea of each item that needs to be completed, but since I have it all written down, nothing gets forgotten!
There are a bunch of charts on Pinterest that are good, but I made my own because my house is not the exact same as every other Pinterest house. I wanted to make mine super specific so that I would have more things to check off and feel like I have made progress even with small things! Some people might not like how detailed this is, because there are so many things to do, but I LOVE it! [Read more…]
