Not Just A Mom- Cleaning Routine


Here we are once again for  our Not Just a Mom link up. Last link up was right before all of this Covid craziness. Funny how things can change in just over a month.

There's lots of (weird ) routine these days but there's something so different about these times.  Instead of talking about a cleaning routine today, I figured I would talk about those random nooks in the house that need to be cleaned. I've been tackling some of these to bring some order into my life in what feels like a very disorderly world.

  • Coffee Table drawers
  • Kids' Clothes- donate, sort and keep. Sidenote, keep until ready to donate. Apparently the donation bins in Canada have been overflowing.
  • Kids' Books- what have they outgrown
  • Winter gear sort out
  • Laundry cupboard organising (bonus: I found disposable gloves and 2 full containers of Lysol wipes)
  • Wiping out and sanitizing the cupboard that holds the compost and recycling bins
  • Kids' work/art cupboard- so many papers to toss, pencils to sharpen
  • Kids' craft supplies.
  • Toys! My kids hardly play with 3/4 of their toys anymore. 
  • Gift supplies- Wrap, Bags and tissue paper
  • Front Console- drawers and cupboard
  • Shoes
  • Socks-- we have way too many one sided socks; time to toss lots
  • Bathroom cupboards
  • Wiping the tops of fridges and cupboards
  • Throwing out old medicine
  • Sorting through candles (boy do I have a lot)
  • Pantry-- added bonus, shopping from the pantry
  • Fridges/freezer cleanout
  • Kid's memory boxes
  • Medicine Cabinet (sorting out expired meds)
Note, I haven't done half of these yet and I take things day by day but hope to in due course.  It helps us to feel a little bit better about our home whilst making me feel in control.

  1. I have barely kept up with regular cleaning much less random spaces that need attention!

  2. I stumbled across two full containers of Lysol wipes when cleaning recently too! I felt like I hit the jackpot!

  3. LOVE that you found some Lysol wipes - huge win! And I need to go through all our one sided socks too <3

  4. I tend to hit those random spaces all throughout the year and am constantly donating items we no longer use. I am quite jealous that you found some Lysol wipes (though since I pretty much never buy them I shouldn't be that shocked that I haven't stumbled upon any here).

  5. I don't even want to think about all the areas of our apartment that need reorganizing and cleaning. Haha! It is sad that our last link up was before all of this... life has changed so much! Hope you and your family are hanging in there

  6. When all this stay at home order started I was in the mindset I will be home all the time to get all the things done. What has really happened is my kids needs me more and nothing gets done.

  7. Oh man we could do for some lysol wipes right now! I like getting rid of things and putting them into a free box so other people could enjoy it! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

  8. Interesting topic for a blog. I have been searching the Internet for fun and came upon your website. Fabulous post. Thanks a ton for sharing your knowledge! It is great to see that some people still put in an effort into managing their websites. I'll be sure to check back again real soon. Jersey City cleaning services
