I start my morning by rebooting the laundry and end my night by shining my sink

Welcome and congratulations on your little one! Don't let this overwhelm you, just adjust where you need to and know that even some cleaning is better than no cleaning!

Ok, I'm still not home, but will type as long as I can before my battery runs out! So, if I don't get too far, I'll be back later.

I don't put on shoes, because I just like bare feet in summer and socks and slippers in winter. Besides, we just don't wear shoes inside.

Now that it's sparkling, it will be easier to keep clean and help you stay motivated.

Ok, wether you have or haven't checked out the Flylady site, you've probably gathered that shinning your sink is the number one thing. I have gone into detail on my blog about my Flylady journey, and had a great time sharing my experience. I'm not necessarily going to just talk each and every step here. I'm just going to go over what I have found to work for me on a daily basis.

Feel free to share your accomplishments each day if you are new to it! That's what this thread is for, help and LOTS of encouragement and back patting!

In our home, like most I'm sure, the kitchen is the heart/hub! Especially since ours is open right into the family room. So, for me shinning my sink (literally, with toothbrush and all) really helped jump start me to wanting to keep it clean, and that mentality just spread to the rest of the house. Now, you'll only do a spit shine like that about once a month on your sink, this is just to start fresh, so don't panic thinking that you'll have to clean it like that daily!

Here's the key though....clean up the kitchen before bed!! I fail at this miserably often, but let me tell you, when I do it, I feel great coming down to a clean kitchen in the morning! Also, makes clean up after breakfast easier!

Tip: After your done cooking dinner, go ahead and fill that nice shiny sink up with hot soapy water. As soon as you serve the food onto the plate, take that greasy, sticky pan or casserole dish and plop it in the water. That way when you are done eating the food has loosened and it's easy to clean or ready to put in dishwasher. I mean that's half the battle right?!! No more spending 10-15 minutes scrubbing that stuck on food!!

Once dishwasher is loaded either set it to start after you've gone to bed (so you can actually hear the TV) or just remember to flip it on before heading to bed. Then you can empty it first thing in the morning, while the dog is doing his business (that's what is happening at my house anyway) so you have a clean slate to not fill your sink the next day.

You can do it!! Let me know tomorrow how good it felt to come down to a clean kitchen!

Tip: if you are a coffee drinker after cleaning kitchen before bed, go ahead and get the coffe maker ready so all you have to do is flip on in the morning. You'll have the dishwasher emptied by the time it's ready and this will save you time if you have to leave for work or appt.

Battery in phone is almost gone, so I'll have to talk more later.

Great tips Jennifer! I'm going to focus on keeping my sink cleaned out. Take it day by day with the Fly Lady planing! I'd love to read your blog so when you get a chance can you send it my way?

Good for you Vicki!! That's accomplishment! Now treat yourself to AFC, book, or bubble bath later!

Yippee!!

Tip: If you and your family start wiping out the bathroom and kitchen sink with the hand towel after EVERY use, you won't believe how clean it will stay! Tell them to do this after brushing their teeth too, don't forget to wipe the faucet and knobs! This takes literally seconds, but saves you from having to clean it so often. TRUST ME...this works!!

Good idea, Dawn!

For me you guys, it's mostly doing little manageable cleaning daily so that I don't have one huge cleaning day. I can't stand cramming everything into one day. I also just like how the house looks cleaner on a consistent basis doing it that way. Most of my cleaning is done M-F.

Here are the things I do everyday:
~clean kitchen
~make bed
~Swish and Swipe toilets (yes, daily, and no, I'm not ...I know I thought too!) I can discuss this today, or leave it for another, up to you.
~vacuum Family Room
~one load of laundry

Now, I do other things as well, but if you just do those things on a daily basis, you won't BELIEVE how clean your house looks. It doesn't take long to do them either. Seriously! I've timed them....yes, literally! I bet you are thinking I'm now huh?!

Two beds take me about 6-7 minutes, Vacuuming just the family room takes me 2mn. 15 secs (that's including taking vacuum out, unwinding cord and plugging in), swishing and swiping 3!!!! toilets takes me about 6 minutes because they are all on a different level of the house. So, that's about 16 minutes to get 3 things on my daily list done, and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!

Saturday and Sunday is left to just the minimum basics:

~clean kitchen
~vacuum only the family room
~make bed
~one load of laundry if there's enough for a full load

So see, I'm no super woman, even though my house looks like I am! What people don't know won't hurt them!

Try it.....time your self with the timer on your phone, kitchen timer, microwave timer or watch, put on some fun music, you'll be amazed at how much you can get done in minutes!!

I used to think those things would be so hard until I REALLY saw how long they actually do take. It's amazing!

I'll talk about more of those things I mentioned in more detail later, or if you have questions now....throw them at me.

So for now, let me know how you all feel tomorrow morning about coming down to a nice clean kitchen!

So glad you stopped in! Good luck in your job search! I just recently started working part time as well. Which is why I have to try to keep on track even more now.

Hope you come back by often to share and encourage!

Great job!!!
Now try just doing one load a day, so you don't have a mountain to tackle at once! No more, "Mooooommmm!!! Where's my red turtle neeeeeck?! Or, "Huuuunnnn!!!! Have you seen my work out paaaannnnttss?"

Ahhhhhh! No more stress of hearing that! I start a load right when I get up, since I have to pass right by the laundry room to go down to the kitchen.

Tip: The color catchers work great! No more separating clothes! Unless they are brand new, just not willing to chance it. I do wash towels separate from clothes.

I love the 2012 items idea (honestly, so would DH)

I declutter for 15 minutes a day. Set my timer and go.

ohh this is fun! I am a stay at home mom now as of this past summer and the only thing I have got on a schedule is washing sheets on Wednesdays! I love to see what the ideas will be!

I do make sure most if not all the laundry is done a day with 4 kiddos and the hubby it really fills up quick. I make sure I do the dishes before bed, and I HAVE to vacuum at least 2 times a day, I go crazy if the carpet looks dirty.
I am horrible about mopping I wish I was better!
