The back to school season, even for homeschoolers, can be a chaotic and stressful time of year.
What with the planning, the curriculum, the actual teaching…the list could go on and on. Add to that the work that comes along with keeping up your home and it is a recipe for some serious exhaustion.
Luckily, you don’t have to let it get that far! Save your sanity and freshen up your cleaning routine this back to school season and make at least one thing on your list a little easier to check off!
Don’t let yourself get to the point that you are completely overwhelmed! It’s the start of a new school year and these tips can help you freshen up your cleaning routine!
Get Everyone Organized
There is nothing worse than sitting down to start your school day with your child to find that they don’t know where half of their stuff is. Create a family command center in a somewhat central location that can house a calendar with all of your family’s appointments, a basket for each person for their important papers, keys, pencils, etc., and a spot for everyone’s shoes. It may seem like a bit of a ragtag team of items but having all of these in a single central location ensures that they’re easily found when needed and not scattered around your home creating clutter.
Keep Everyone Organized
I know, I know. Easier said than done right? It’s actually easier than you might think! Make everyone in your family a before bed quick cleanup checklist and list two or three things that each family member can be responsible for.
You just spent all of that time getting everyone organized by creating a family command center, use it! Add the command center to each person’s list. Quickly, before bed, find and make sure that all of the items that should or need to be in their space in the command center are there. That way, when you wake up in the morning, everyone knows where their keys, important school papers, and shoes are. Need a little bit more help around the house? Add another item to each person’s checklist and make sure that the lists are completed each night before bed. Splitting the tasks up between family members makes it faster and easier to get it all done.
Consolidate Your Supplies
You don’t really need 3 bottles of window cleaner and 4 tubs of disinfecting wipes. Save yourself some space by consolidating what you can and save yourself some time by batching up your tasks, or multi-tasking, if you will.
One simple way to speed up your everyday cleaning is by keeping both NEW Bounty with Dawn and regular Bounty paper towels right on hand at all times. The regular rolls are fantastic for those everyday messes and spills, but for those greasy or sticky messes, Bounty with Dawn,which is water activated and combines the long lasting power of Dawn with the new ultra durable Bounty, gives you the extra elbow grease you need to get the job done. Seriously! One towel can clean your entire kitchen!
The best part is, with the new limited edition dual roll holders, you can keep them right on your kitchen counter and never have to search for a roll again!
So, where do you find these new roll holders? Well, right here of course! Just let us know in the comment section below how you plan to refresh your cleaning routine this back to school season for your chance to take one of the dual roll holders, a regular Bounty roll, and a Bounty with Dawn roll home!
