Strategies that take some of the time and pain away

WHO HERE IS A FAN OF SHORTCUTS?

While I don’t believe there is any magic potion you can drink that brings you a totally clean home. There are strategies that take some of the time and pain away.

Can I get an Amen 🙌? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Yes, getting support can help you understand what to do so you aren’t falling down Alice’s rabbit hole and trying to find your way out in the dark.

Here’s what I know to be true about cleaning house:

It’s overwhelming especially during covid times!

I also know about single tasking and how by doing little chunks of a bigger task you can get things done without a painful and usually stressful journey.

Step 1: Pick key areas of your house that are the most used but take the least amount of time to clean. For me it’s a quick swish and swipe of the bathrooms and a load of dishes in the kitchen. I’d keep it to about 4-5 cleaning tasks a day so you can finish all of them without feeling pressured.

Step 2: Set yourself a reminder to do your tasks. Without prompting you’ll get distracted.

Step 3: Schedule time on the calendar to do your cleaning. Try to keep it at a regular time of the day if possible so you can get into the habit of knowing that at such and such time you’ll be cleaning. Bonus if you set a timer for yourself and be satisfied with what you get done in a limited amount of time.

And if you really want to speed things up, read my blog post about how a to do list saved my sanity. Also you can use some of my google tips to help you with your calendar set up.

Share with me your daily tasks that help keep your house clean!

I’m Patty Gordon, a 40+ year old school lunch lady married to a crane mechanic. Our days are anything but normal as he works “construction worker hours” and I take care of our two elementary school aged kids, Chihuahua Mr Biggs, Pitbull Cali, and French Bulldog MooMoo. I blogged a few years ago under different names but have landed with the 365MomMe.com name this time around. The term 365MomMe comes from the idea that I’m a mom and I’m me 365 days a year. Kids call me Mommy but I see myself as MomMe.
