I used to be a cleanie. Before baby, I would invite you to eat your chicken and potato off my floor. It sounds gross but my house was that clean. Now, when I can barely find the time to shower let alone scrub the floors, I'm torn as to how to keep my house in relative order. I've got some tips and tricks that I'm willing to share with you just so long as you share them right back ;)
I try to do a deep clean once a week during one of Isabella's naps. It's a relative deep clean, just disinfecting things, using a mop and bucket instead of the swiffer, sweeping under all the cushions etc.
I clean one room at a time or else I get overwhelmed.
I don't bother putting toys away until after she's gone to bed. There's really no point to it.
I delegate. I force Andy to help me out. He knows I can't put out if I'm stressed out about dishes in the sink.
Ok, so now I expect full discloser on how you keep your homes in relative order so I can steal them.
