DAY 6: The 7-Day SIMPLY CLEAN Kick Start Challenge
If you’ve wanted to start a cleaning routine but haven’t known how or where to start, The 7-Day SIMPLY CLEAN Kick Start Challenge is for you. If you need a little encouragement and help sticking with a cleaning routine, you’ll love this challenge as well. I started developing my cleaning routine for myself almost 20 years ago and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tweaked and changed it, but it’s the one thing that remains the same in the midst of a busy life. I hope you try it out and see how it works for you!
This challenge is straight from my best-selling book Simply Clean – grab the book for even more!
The following is an excerpt from Chapter 3 in Simply Clean:
(FRIDAY) DAY 6: CATCH-ALL DAY
My secret to a clean house most of the time? I always incorporate and plan for a day to catch up every single week. This is one of the secrets to a clean home. Build in a day that accounts for life’s surprises, because you know they’re going to happen. Someone will get sick, you’ll be needed somewhere else, or maybe you just won’t feel like cleaning bath-rooms or vacuuming. I believe it’s absolutely necessary to give yourself grace and plan for that list to have more on it than you can accomplish. If you didn’t complete everything this week or left something out, go back and finish it up.
What can you catch up on today? Take the time to finish up anything that’s looming, uncompleted, or just bugging you. If you were able to finish everything this week, do a quick cleanup and declutter. Grab a bag or basket and walk through your home picking up anything that’s in a spot where it doesn’t belong. Once you’ve gathered a bag or basket of clutter, return each item to its proper home, put it in a donate bin, or toss it out.
Here’s how the challenge is going to work – every day for 7 days (July 30-August 5) you’ll have an assigned task to complete – you’ll see that the tasks semi-mirror my cleaning routine. Once you’ve completed the 7 tasks, you’ll be ready to continue with the Simply Clean Method as you move forward. I’ll be sharing the daily tasks on social media and on the blog.
