Next I have to say that I am no Martha Stewart but at times her how to videos are great, with that said here is one on folding a fitted sheet and organizing the linen closet.

Day 25  surface clean or deep clean your kitchen and/or living room.

We have done this before and here are Money Saving Mom’s ideas

  • Set the timer for 15 minutes and pick up and put away everything that’s out of place. Bonus project: Find 7 things to get rid of.
  • Next, wash the dishes in the kitchen (if there are any), wipe down the countertops and surfaces in the kitchen.
  • Finally, vacuum the living room.

Day 26 Deep Clean the kitchen.

  • I would make sure you mop, wipe counters and you could even do things like wipe down the cupboards and clean the microwave…

Day 27 Surface clean the bathrooms.

I personally do my weekly cleaning of the bathrooms on Monday nights after David’s bath.  But as an added bit to this task I

  • Cleared the counters of clutter.
  • Tossed out old items that needed to go (I had combs that I have had since Jr. High)
  • Straightened up items that were in the drawers (hair ties help to loosely hold cords neatly to avoid damaging with tightly wrapping)
  • Cleaned out and straightened up under the sink

Money Saving Mom’s Ideas on the bathroom are:

  • Set the timer for 20 minutes and put toilet cleaner in each of the toilet bowls and let it soak.
  • Remove any items that don’t belong in the bathroom, put away items that need to be put away in the bathroom, empty the trash.
  • Spray and wipe down the sink and tub.
  • Finish swishing and cleaning the toilet.
  • Shake the rugs outside (or throw them in the laundry) and mop or vacuum the floors.
  • Wipe down the outside of the cupboards and clean the mirror.
  • You’re done!

Day 28 Surface clean the bedrooms.

  • Set the timer for 20 minutes (this can be done for each room), start by picking up any dirty clothes and putting them in the hamper.
  • return all items that don’t belong in the room to their rightful places.
  • Make the bed, change the sheets if needed.
  • Dust surfaces.
  • Lastly run the vacuum or sweep the floors!
  • If you have time remaining you can spot clean the walls and doors!

Money Saving Mom’s ideas for this last week were

  • Set the timer for 20 minutes and pick up and put away all items that are out of place. (Bonus: find 7 items to get rid of.)
  • Pull out any items under the bed that don’t below under the bed and make the bed (wash sheets/bedding, if needed).
  • Vacuum/sweep the room. (Bonus: use an attachment on the vacuum to vacuum around the baseboards and vacuum under the bed.)
  • Clean fingerprints on the windows.
  • Bonus: Spot-clean the carpets and walls.
  • You’re done!
