GOAL 2: Keep a Clean and Organized Home... consistently.We have some issues in our home:
- We are always busy. Between work, gym, half marathon training, and our social lives, our calendar seems never ending at times. When we do get a day at home, it's hard not give into the temptation to just be lazy and enjoy "vegging out."
- We have a Black Lab. I love her, but she sheds more than any other dog I have ever seen. I don't understand how she has any fur left on her body.
- We have so many home projects going at one time. When we bought this house 3 years ago, I didn't realize what a never ending mess it would be.
- My home office needs to be finished. LIKE TOMORROW.
Enter TidyMom.net! No, I am not a Mom, but Cheryl seriously has some great advice to keeping and maintaining a neat and tidy home. And her blog is pretty much amazing - you should definitely hop over there - only after you finish reading this of course! :)
Also be sure to check out her post, How to Clean a Home. I love all of her tips.
She also has printables for daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly chores. This is awesome for me. I make to do lists every day. I love the feeling of checking things off! Check them out below.
I love that she breaks things down for you. And the yearly one is all about organization and decluttering. JUST WHAT WE NEED.
I will start with taking down all of the Christmas decor and doing a thorough cleaning this weekend. I feel better just thinking about it! Again, Hubs and I are both committed to making the changes. This will make our chaotic lives a little less, umm.... chaotic.
I Hope you had a great day! Looking forward to sharing my next goal with you tomorrow! Here's to a great, organized, and clean year! Talk soon, friends!
