Happy Friday!  Here are my favorites from the week with you – it might be a quote, a print, what I’m reading, a favorite podcast, a playlist, a recipe, a helpful tip, a cleaning product, or something I added to our home. Basically if it’s something little that I feel is shareable or if it’s something I’d bring up to a friend over coffee or on the phone, I’m probably going to share it with you here. Here’s a link to all of the posts in this series.

Well guys, it’s officially summer. I really, truly triple-heart love summer but it always takes me a couple weeks to get in the groove of the different activities and pace.
Summer is for sharing!  Follow along on Instagram @cleanmama for my weekly cleaning routine and homekeeping tips and tricks. I have been working on some big changes here at Clean Mama and I finally get to share all.the.things with you soon. If you’re following along you’ll see sneak peaks and get an inside look behind the scenes. I’m working like crazy to make sure that as many homes as possible find Clean Mama and see how simple it is to keep your home clean when you clean a little bit everyday. I LOVE sharing your posts too! Tag me so I can see them and re-post them. It’s so fun for me to see how you’re implementing my cleaning routine in your home. 
I feel like we’re right on the edge of getting into the rhythm. All three of my kids like to be busy with their sport so we make time for that in June and then in July and August we try to slow down a little bit. In this week’s ‘It’s the Little Things’ post I thought I’d share some things that are working or have worked for us with the hope that it will help you find your rhythm too. Here are two oldie but goodie posts all about systems you can put in place to make your home run a little smoother.

Do you do chore charts with your kids? We’ve been structuring our days with daily and weekly tasks at the beginning of the day and other activities later. Work first, fun later is the motto and it works with the kids (and me too). Things get done a little more quickly and it sets our days up for activities, relaxing, and downtime. We love downtime. Here are a couple posts what talk about chores and how we do them at our house. If there’s another kids topic you’d like me to cover, tell me!

I shared the book Digital Minimalism a couple months ago in my Summer Book Stack post and I’m loving it – just thought you might want to give it a look. It validates how I have been feeling about social media and screens in general. If nothing else it’s food for thought but it also lays out a plan for reducing the amount of time we spend in front of our screens. For me, I’m taking it on as a productivity challenge so I can spend less time online and get the same amount or more done. 

What have you been enjoying this week? Any little things to share?
