Notice I said keeping things clean. I'm not talking about trying to scour the whole house daily. We're talking maintenance, people...
Step One: Know Yourself
Every woman is different, and we each have our different ideas of what Clean looks like. We each have things that we can't stand and things that we don't even notice. Some of us hate clutter, some of us don't even see it!
Take a few minutes (or a few days!) and mull this over. Try to decide what your level of clean is. (Just don't use it as an excuse to not clean!)
The Daily Routine is not about overhauling your entire house everyday; it is about maintenance! -AT
Step Two: Know Your Situation
Life goes through seasons. If you have ten kids, or a new baby, or a big kid adoption, or a sickness, or a grandparent moving in, or a move, or a job change for your spouse, or...
Well, do you see where I'm going with this? Take a realistic look at your current season of life. Combine that with your personal level of clean. Then you are ready to create a Daily Routine for Keeping Things Clean.
Step Four: Build Small Habits
Home maintenance is kinda like brushing your teeth: You'd rather give the job 4 minutes a day (total) than two hours in the dental chair having repairs done. And once the habit is set, you don't mind the quick work of brushing.
Treat your Daily Routine like that: Create small habits for you, andfor your children! You will be glad you did!
