So here are the things that work the best for me and my chaotic schedule!
Rules to a spotless house :
#1 Break your cleaning schedule up through out the week. It is so much easier to knock out a few things a night verses letting everything build up.
#2 The 15 minute clean up is vital!!! Every night before I put the kids to bed I take 15 min or less to put toys, trash, dirty clothes, and what ever else back in their spots. If I don't do this by the end of the week I'm spending an hour just sorting through the mess... all while threatening to trash/donate all toys if they can't be put away properly!!
#3 This is not my favorite but a load of laundry a night does wonders! I'm one of those people who let the laundry pile up so high I have to go to the laundry mat to knock it out. Not only does a load a night keep things from piling up but the loads are smaller which means folding takes two seconds!
#4 BE CONSISTENT!
Here are some more great cleaning tips I've found on pinterest! Enjoy!!
