House-cleaning schedule for stay-at-home moms

THE BEST, SIMPLE house-cleaning schedule for stay-at-home-moms! PLUS: how to make your own schedule!

Cleaning schedules used to STRESS ME OUT!

For one, I am NOT naturally a tidy person.

I like to throw my clothes on the floor when I change, I don’t “clean as I go” when I cook, and my husband would (lovingly) say that in general, I’m haphazard with most things in life (haha!).

However, as a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM), I’ve found that having a tidy home is a must for my sanity, and I have actually come to not mind cleaning and tidying up. BUT ONLY BECAUSE I try not to let things get out of hand and (TRY TO) follow my house-cleaning schedule.

Check it out below, and if mine doesn’t work for you, I’ll share how I made mine, so you can make your own!

Happy cleaning!

Best baby and one year old toys (and books!)

Toys and books your baby or one year old will love! These toys are PERFECT to help foster independent play right from the start!

one year old and baby best toys

I am passionate about independent play! It’s healthy and good for both kids and caregivers, and it’s SUCH an awesome skill to foster independence in all areas!

A great way to encourage independent play right from the start, is invest (or MAKE) good, age-appropriate toys that also encourage interaction from those playing.

Toys with lights and noise typically don’t require as much from the kids (and also, noises get on my nerves), so that’s why my toy lists don’t typically include those types of toys. (Although, mama, I’m not judging you if you use them; this is my personal preference!)
