It is here! Starting tomorrow I will be posting every day in October, sharing a task to help us get our homes in tip-top shape.
These tasks are the same tasks I do for spring cleaning. Doing these tasks twice per year can really help keep your home beautiful. This will not include basic cleaning tasks like dishes, cleaning the bathroom or laundry. What I will be writing about (and doing) are those tasks most of us don’t normally do on a daily, weekly or even monthly basis.
Some of these tasks will take less than half an hour, others of these could take you a few days to complete depending on how much time you have. I have two small kids, one of which is home with me everyday and is like a little tornado. I won’t always get all these tasks done in one afternoon. If you are feeling overwhelmed getting the task done throughout your whole house, then just focus on the dirtiest or most used room in your house and work from there!
You will want to work top to bottom when cleaning. This way you will not be getting the areas you have already cleaned dirty again. Bookmark or pin this page, as this is the one I will be updating daily with what tasks we have already completed. So, you can jump in any time!
