I recently found a great blog. The owner, Ruth, is doing a series right now called The Beginner’s Guide to Cleaning.
The first step she recommends is determining why having a clean house matters to you.
So here are my whys:
A clean house matters to me because I am tired of being stressed and disorganized. The main reason I want a clean house is because I want my time with my family to be fun and relaxed and comfortable.
The next step is to create a cleaning schedule that works for you.
What works for me right now is to have a weekly big clean so that my older son can earn his allowance. What I need to incorporate is a daily clean so that the house stays nice between weekly sessions.
So that’s it for me. Now to get up and do a bit of cleaning.
