clean up, clean up...

hope this is stuck in your head now, like it is mine!! :)

Today's post will be all about my cleaning schedule and routine! It's actually more of a reminder for me than anything--I have been totally SLACKING on my cleaning lately! Case in point... 
EW!! I can't believe I let our bathtub get so bad!  I am trying to be real with you on this blog.  That picture is nasty, and embarrassing, but that's life! But (excuses, excuses) the drain was clogged and I haven't been home much and with everything that's been going on, cleaning has just gotten pushed to the back burner-NO MORE! 
This is our cleaning schedule, the most recent draft at least...It has changed several times.  But needs change, routines change, it's part of life :) This is probably the fifth or sixth version by now and I am still updating it for our current house!

It was just made on Microsoft Excel, printed, and laminated so we can check things off with dry erase markers.  Let me know if you want one and I can email it to you!!  I can even customize it if you'd like! :) 
  We hung it up in the kitchen, right over the coffee so we both see it everyday :)
We also L-O-V-E Google Calendar to keep us up to date with cleaning as well....

 If you don't use it yet...CHECK IT OUT! I just made a special calendar titled "cleaning" and entered in our schedule.  This is especially useful for the Monthly or more rare items! Google Calendar is so easy to use-you can just set up reoccurring events and share with anyone! You can also color code items-who doesn't LOVE that?!
Oh, and by the way...
SO much better!!! :)
So even though I've been slacking lately, I promise NO MORE! I feel so much better when my house is clean, don't you? Let me know how you keep up with it all!! Any tips and tricks? I'd love to hear them! :)

**OH and let me know if you want a customized cleaning schedule for your own home!! Just comment below and we'll be in touch :)
