This month's challenge is to deep clean bedrooms. Follow the free printable so you don't miss any steps in keeping your bedrooms clean and organized!

Having a rotating checklist to deep clean each area of your house is a great way to stay on top of housework. Try this Deep Clean Bedroom Checklist!

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!

I feel most comfortable in my home when it is clean. On the surface, my house may not always look clean because we have 7 people living here. Underneath the toys and books that will get cleaned up before bed, the dust bunnies and clutter are next to none. Some of the things on the list may seem a little over the top, but doing these things will help keep your home in order.

Whenever I have a free 15 minutes or so throughout the day, I will work on one of the things from my list. By the end of the month, it is all done, but I haven’t had to devote an entire day to getting things finished. Because things are broken up into small pieces, I am also able to pick and choose which things my kids can do to help.

I have helped people move and clean their houses quite a bit over the years. In that time, I have seen everything from the houses that look like a bomb exploded, to the house that didn’t even have a speck of dust on the baseboards behind furniture. I think you can tell which kind of house I am aiming for.

I like the peace of mind knowing that when we move, if we should ever move, I can pick things up and put them right in a box. When we moved to this house, it didn’t take long at all to pack up because everything was organized already. The thing that made the move the hardest was simply trying to figure out what we could pack up first and not need before we moved since we were already living pretty simply.

So, what am I cleaning this month?

September is the month for bedrooms to be deep cleaned. Each area is cleaned every 6 months so it is never TOO overwhelming as long as I stay on top of the list. September and March are the perfect months to clean bedrooms since the seasons are changing around those months. Since I am already cleaning out the closets, I just put the out of season clothes away and pull out the clothes for the next season.
