Week 2, Day 3: Bedrooms

Happy Hump Day!

Today we're going to clean the bedrooms. 

Let's do our dailies first!

Main Checklist:

  • Do at least one load of laundry from start to finish. Wash, dry, & put away!
  • Unload and reload your dishwasher. If you don't have one, wash and put away all of your dirty dishes.
  • Don't be lazy! When you take  something from a room to put it away, put it where it belongs. We're trying to avoid having a mess pile up.
  • Do a quick pick-up in the kitchen. Remove anything that doesn't belong & de-clutter the countertops.
  • Do a quick pick-up in the living room. Remove anything that does not belong.
  • Check the bedrooms. Is there a mess? Yes? Pick it up before it gets out of control!
  • Check the bathrooms. Clean up any messes you see.
  • Encourage your children to clean up after themselves by showing them where and how to put their belongings away when they're finished with them.
  • Do a clean sweep through the kitchen & living room before you go to bed.
By doing this checklist, you're keeping your house under control. When I walk into a room and it's a giant mess, I just want to walk right back out. Messes do NOT motivate me. I also find that my stress level is way lower if my house is not a mess. It's easier to get tasks done, so I get to spend more time with my kids.


On to the bedrooms!

Remember, this does not include the master bedroom. 

Week 2: Bedrooms Checklist

  • Pick up the bedroom. Put away anything that is on the floor. Clear surfaces of clutter.
  • Use a dust cloth to wipe down any shelves, trinkets, knick-knacks, etc. starting from the highest point in the room. 
  • Pull the sheets & wash them. 
  • Straighten the clothes, shoes, & accessories in the closet.
  • Be sure the shelves & dresser look neat, and not cluttered. 
  • Wipe down the blinds.
  • Wash any windows, mirrors, and picture frames.
  • Vacuum the floor. 

Let's get started! 
Let me know if there's anything else to add to the list!
Happy cleaning!
