Grab some trash bags
The first place to start with any mess is getting all the garbage out
Start with these:
- junk mail
- old bills
- coloring pages
- scrap paper
- plastic bags
Go room by room and get all the trash picked up and taken out
Get the laundry to the laundry room
One of the most dreaded parts of cleaning I know, the laundry
This will eliminate a good amount of the clutter
Have some baskets laid out to be able to sort out laundry
set a timer to keep track of when to switch it over
fold and put away right when it’s dry ( i know, its a pain)
Get all the toys to their homes
In my house, if it’s not trash or laundry, its toys that are everywhere
toys pretty much rule my house when it’s not the kids toys, its the dog toys
Break out the vacuum
The toys, laundry, and trash should be pretty much what is on the floor
It’s time to clean that floor
Sweep and mop hard surfaces
Time to sweep up all that dirt and mop the floors to get it clean
Start washing and switching over laundry while cleaning
Laundry isn’t too bad if its taken care of right away and between tasks
Take care of the dishes
Wash or unload and reload the dishwasher to power through the dishes
Clean the counters
Throw away the trash and put as much as possible away
Then clean the counter with your favorite solution
Clean the bathrooms
Typically I make the kids clean their bathroom, but occasionally I will go over it.
