Since 2009, Clean Mama has been teaching people how to keep their spaces clean and organized with ease and style.  Her site is full of all sorts of resources — printables, schedules, products, and all the tips, tools and tricks to helping you achieve your homekeeping goals.  I follow her on Instagram and recently joined the 7-Day Simply Clean Start Challenge which helps you establish a cleaning routine. #cleaningismyjam

Her trick:  Focus on just one task a day Monday through Saturday.  By the end of the week, you’ve tackled your entire house.  For example, Mondays is bathrooms only -whether you have one or five, that’s all you do is clean the bathroom.  Tuesday is dusting (which is my LEAST favorite chore. B-O-R-I-N-G), and so on.  You can check it all out on her site and in her book Simply Clean which I plan to purchase with my $50 Amazon gift card I won from the gym for achieving an exercise goal!  Winning!

In the meantime, click here for Becky’s free August printable. During the summer Miss Phoebe has been earning her allowance doing housekeeping chores. Now, she can just use this list to see what needs to be done! Again with the winning!

Note:  I was not compensated for this post.  I’m just a fan of clean and Clean Mama.
