Creative Cleaning and Cleansing

"Less Stress from Cleaning the Mess." From decluttering to inspiration! Proverbs 31:27a

Let’s Get This Party Started 2015

Guess what I did today? Alot,but I also got a New 2015 Calender and some fun pens. I sat down and filled my calendar with what I know.. so far. I also included date nights, family fun nights, home projects, and cleaning/decluttering to do’s. Of course things may change but at least I got started. 🙂

Using colors is a great way to organize schedules and appointments for each family member. Colors: Blue for my husband, Green for my son, Pink for my daughter, Purple or me, black for everything else. It’s already a little busy but SO PREEEETTTY!!! I love having things planned (as much as possible). LOL  It feels so great to start 2015 with a plan and a date night tonight!!!

Having a calendar keeps everything in perspective and helps your mind be more free of stress.

Get your calendar that works for you and some fun colors and get your party started!!!

Happy New Year 2015

As you can see there are many ways to define “RESOLUTION.” What is your meaning?

Do you have any resolutions? Do you have a plan of action?

Let me share my most important resolution and plan of action with you, if I may…

My 2014 New Year’s Resolution is: to STOP just being there and START BEING THERE! In more detail…stop just thinking about things, do them.

My plan of action involves 3 main steps:

1.)      Pray about everything and anything…the more detail the better, that way I know God is always working and blessing me and will help me bless others.

2.)      Be healthy in every way. Mentally, physically, emotionally, and most importantly SPIRITUALLY! Even if it means taking one step at a time…I know that I will be better than I used to be.

3.)      Action. No not movie stuff LOL…but as soon as I have a thought…do it.  Call that person…offer a ride…play that game with my kids…take my husband out on a date…have a party for no reason…give when there is a need…offer what I have…God will do the rest. Whatever it is…don’t wait any more! I want to enjoy life to the fullest.

Life will bring challenges to my resolution, but I am ready to take them on.

If you need some tips and suggestion about your resolution, email me and I will be more than happy to help you get started and make a plan of action!

Let do this New Year thing together!

~~~HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014~~~

Basic New Year Cleaning

Starting the New Year can be Challenging  when it comes to Cleaning, But if you have a Cleaning Schedule, you can have “Less Stress From Cleaning the Mess.”

Start with Creating a Cleaning Schedule just for your family….here is how!

Creating a cleaning schedule can be a confusing job. How often do cleaning tasks need to be performed? How long does a particular job take? What chores are considered daily, weekly, monthly, or seasonal tasks? The truth is that no one schedule will work perfectly for the same two people. If your home has small children, you may find that weekly tasks need to be performed daily to prevent getting behind. If you live alone, some daily tasks may only need to be done weekly. Allergy sufferers and people with breathing issues may need to perform certain tasks on a more frequent basis. Use the following guidelines as a starting point to developing your own daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal cleaning schedule.

Daily Cleaning Chores

Daily cleaning chores are the absolute minimum that must be done on a daily basis to keep a home clean. Depending on the type of household you live in, some of these chores may even need to be done more than once during a day.

Weekly Cleaning Chores

Although most of these chores don’t require daily work, they are still some of the most important tasks that need to be done in our homes. Some items may need to be completed more often. Scheduling these chores in addition to your daily chores will help you maintain order and cleanliness in your home.

Monthly Cleaning Chores

Monthly cleaning chores are my favorite weekend chores. These are areas of your home that can afford to be neglected during your daily and weekly cleaning sessions, but ultimately a good thorough monthly cleaning is needed.

Seasonal Cleaning Chores

Although seasonal cleaning chores are important, they are usually the most forgotten parts of home maintenance. Our attention is only needed in these areas two to three times a year, but it is vital to maintaining and cleaning our homes.
