They say that you should write the book you need, so this weekend, as I tried to reset our home, I started sketching out a plan.
At first, it all looked a little crazy.
So I pulled out my three favorite cleaning books:
- Simply Clean by Becky Rapinchuk
- Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook
- Home Comforts by Cheryl Mendelson
And I started to think about what I love about each of those books, but why none of the plans work for me …
You Live in Your Home
It’s easier to keep a house neat when you’re not in it.
So that’s the first thing I need you to hear: You USE your house, my friend.
As a busy homeschooling mama, you are home a lot, and your kiddos make messes – paint and soup and juice and glitter and if you add in any pets …
So regular cleaning routines might not work for you.
I get that because they never quite worked for me either.
A New Plan
So I decided to write out a new plan, which quickly turned into a whole system. (It’s amazing what you can get done when you’re procrastinating from actual cleaning.)
And an ebook was born. It’s called The Who Has Time For This Guide to Cleaning Your Homeschool Home.
It’s 19 pages, packed with ideas, systems and 8 printables to help you clean in a new way that works for a family that uses their home a lot.
Inside you’ll get:
A full cleaning break-down – my philosophy, plus trips, tricks and advice on how to clean in bite-sized chunks, while staying on top of daily messes.
Plus, 8 printables including:
- my cleaning system
- ideas for things to declutter
- how to clean kids’ rooms (without yelling!)
- ideas for rotating weekly/monthly tasks
- chore ideas for kids
- a family to-do list printable
- an inspiring quote and MORE!
- a link to my very favorite cleaning products
- a free Mrs. Meyers gift set from Grove (with your first purchase)
Not perfect, but cozy, inviting and calm …
What I present in the book is an imperfect and dare I say lazy-ish cleaning plan.
I have no aspirations to win awards for my housekeeping.
But I also think it would be nice if when the Fed Ex guy came by, it didn’t look like we were in the process of being robbed.
