House Cleaning and a Free Printable

House Cleaning, two words that don't come naturally to me.  I am not a natural house keeper and house cleaning is not something I am good at.  It has been a constant struggle for me my entire life, and I'm pretty sure it will always be a struggle.  I never had a clean room growing up, even when I moved out of my parents house I still didn't keep a clean room.  I'm the type of person that loves a clean home, but can live in a messy home.  I wouldn't say my house was dirty, just messy and cluttered, I hold on to things too long.  I am married to the opposite of myself, Matt loves a clean home.  He is great at getting rid of things and living basically clutter free, so this has been a point of contention in our five years of marriage.  
So, I have decided to make a change, and I've been at it for a month and I hope I can keep it up, because I LOVE IT!  I have made myself a schedule of things that I need to get done every day in order to have a clean house.  These are things I was doing before, but not regularly.  My house is now to the point that I am great with someone showing up unexpectedly, and I don't feel like I can't invite them in because I'm embarrassed about the state of my home.  We had guests over last Friday for dinner and the only thing I had to do was vacuum before they came over...no rushing around trying to clean everything, because it was already clean!  I am still trying to figure out the timing of cleaning on my work days.  I need to nap since I work nights, but the only time I have to clean the house is while she's sleeping which is also the only time I have to sleep.  It's a big juggle and many days I sleep from 6-8 am and then I'm up until work that night...it's exhausting.  So, some days I don't get all my chores done, but I will get them done the next day. 
I know there are many people out there that have the same problem as me, and I am sorry, I know how frustrating it is, but if I can change, so can you!!  Here's my printable that I made, and it's helping me a ton!

I keep it on my refrigerator so I can easily see it in the middle of the day.  


Here's the printable: printable

  5. Wow, I so admire your organizational and domestic skills. Unfortunately, such things were only abstract to me. Haha! I have a checklist too, but I find it really difficult to follow through it, particularly for those days when work is so demanding and time-consuming I have no choice but to leave my bed unmade and watch my dirty clothes pile in the laundry. It’s utterly frustrating! T.T

  20. Carpet steam cleaning, also known as hot water extraction, is the preferred method for deep cleaning carpets because of its ability to remove stubborn stains and embedded dirt. Steam cleaning machines blast your carpet with hot water and then use powerful suction to remove loosened dirt and excess moisture, leaving your carpet feeling and smelling fresh and clean. Here are some tips if you are considering deep steam cleaning your carpets. While carpet steam cleaning is recommended by most carpet manufacturers, you should still consult with your carpet’s manufacturer to ensure that steam cleaning is safe and will not adversely affect your carpet’s fibers, dyes, and construction. To achieve the best results, hire a professional to steam clean your carpets. A reputable carpet cleaning business can offer a guarantee that your carpets will be cleaned safely and effectively without any damage. Look for a company that is certified and uses Seal of Approval products and equipment, which have been tested to ensure high quality treatment. If you have pet urine stains, it is important to thoroughly clean and remove the stains before proceeding with carpet steam cleaning. Steam cleaning is not recommended for pet stains, since hot water can cause the crystals in your pet’s urine to bond to your carpet’s fibers, creating permanent stains and odors.
