A Day in the Life of a Once a Month Cleaner

Written by Jamie Martin, editor of Simple Homeschool and founder of Steady Mom

Today I’m finishing up all this cleaning talk with a post over at Steady Mom. (Somehow posting before & after photos of my toilet doesn’t seem appropriate in this venue!)

it’s because I have better things to do with my time.”

Diary of a once a month cleaning day in action:

The night before: The kids are taking a bath, so I’m able to change a few sets of sheets on beds upstairs. I put other sheets in the wash so they’ll be ready in the morning. (Doing this makes me feel like I have a headstart on the day’s work tomorrow!)

6:45 am, Cleaning Day – I wake up with purpose and get busy. Seems like the perfect time to declare a “hat day” instead of fixing hair. By the time the kids are ready for breakfast, I’ve finished changing the rest of the sheets and have dusted a few rooms upstairs too.

9:00 am – After breakfast I send the kids outside to play in the backyard. This is our normal morning routine–usually I use this time to work on the blogs. But today it’s all about the cleaning. So I get started in the dining room, kitchen, and half-bath. These are the areas where I can work while still keep an eye on them.

Head here to read the rest.
