Day 4: Remaining Bedrooms

Happy Thursday, everyone! 

Today we're going to focus on the remaining bedrooms in the house. 

If you guys are anything like me, your bedroom is a catch-all for when company comes over and the house isn't quite ready. Or maybe you have papers that need filing or laundry that piles up. I never really liked cleaning my room as a kid....and I still don't.

Let's get started!

Main Checklist:

  • Do at least one load of laundry from start to finish. Wash, dry & put away!
  • Load and unload your dishwasher. If you don't have one, wash and put away all of your dirty dishes.
  • Don't be lazy. When you remove an item from a room, put it away where it belongs. We're trying to avoid having a mess pile up. 
  • Do a quick pick-up of the kitchen. If there is anything in there that doesn't belong, put it away.
  • Clear the kitchen counters of clutter.
  • Keep an eye on the living room & bedrooms. If a mess is starting to form, pick it up.
  • Encourage your children to help you pick up messes as they're finished with toys.
  • Do a clean sweep through the kitchen and living room before bed.

Since this is the second day cleaning bedrooms, we're doing the same checklist we did yesterday. 

Bedrooms Checklist:

  • Pick up anything lying on the floor. Put it in its proper place.
  • Remove clutter from flat surfaces including the dresser, nightstands and shelves.
  • Put away any clean clothes that may be lying around.
  • Place dirty laundry in the hamper/basket, or take them to the laundry room to be sorted.
  • Make the bed.
  • Vacuum the floor thoroughly. 
Happy Cleaning!

This is perfect! I've been meaning to create a small area in our bedroom for my yoga practice. No excuses now :)
