Weekly Fall Cleaning Checklist- Week One

in , , , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Friday, October 17, 2014

I have been a busy little bee around the home office this week, but now it's time for me to turn my focus back to domestic pursuits, cause folks, you just can't decorate an unclean home anymore than you can entertain in one. 

I've looked at several Fall Cleaning Checklists, but found them to be to generalized, so I decided to make a weekly checklist of what I'm doing and share it here with you. I hope you find this list helpful. If you do,  please feel free to print out a copy for yourself and pin it for others to use. Now, let's roll up our sleeves and get some fall cleaning done.

Weekly Fall Cleaning Checklist Week One

Checklist for Weekly Fall Cleaning

Inside: Bedrooms:
  • Clean ceilings, walls, ceiling fans and light fixtures
  • Flip mattresses
  • Wash mattress and pillow covers
  • Bring cold weather linens out of storage, wash if needed
  • Vacuum baseboards
  • Vacuum behind beds and dressers
  • Clean window treatments as needed (don’t wash windows yet!)
  • De-clutter nightstands, recycle reading material as needed
  • Hang/put away all clothing
  • Find proper home for anything out of place

Helpful Tips:

  • Wrap your broom with an old tee shirt and secure with a rubber band to clean ceilings and walls.
  •  Always clean from top to bottom going clockwise around the room.
  • Put a laundry basket at the door to place “found* items in to take to their proper home later.
  • Turn on your favorite upbeat music and go!

Be sure to check back next Friday for week two's Fall Cleaning Checklist where we will tackle the living room and other common area's of your home and start working on some outdoor fall cleaning projects. 

Are we friends? Be sure to follow My WAHM Plan on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.  I'd love to see your Fall projects, so be sure to tag me or leave a comment here on your recent Fall posts. 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic

My sweethearts

If I could go back in time, just for a day or two, I would go back here. When both my girls fit on the same seat and gladly shared their days and ring pops. This was a magical, happy time in a home we all adored.

Weekly Blog Post Round Up

in , , , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Saturday, March 16, 2013

There were several  goals set and met here on my WAHM Plan this week. 

write them done

 I have wrote and published a post every single day so far! I broke the 1,800 goal for followers on Twitter, I'm doing my first ever weekly blog post round up and I got to join in on my first ever Mission Giveaway!

 Mission Giveaway is a group of bloggers that like to give back, pay it forward and work as a team. I an honored to be a part of this amazing group, which leads me to my weekly round up. 

I would like to introduce you to the bloggers I got to know this week via Mission Giveaway. They helped, supported, made me laugh, and provided me with food for thought on their posts. I hope you will take a minute and visit them.

Meet my new friends:
  • Dina at My Unentitled Life has easy $5 or Less Easter Decorations that look fun to make.

  • Check out Donna's re-make of Shamrock Pretzels over at Donna's Deals and More. 

  • Katrina at Enchanted Savings has a great re-make of Homemade Fish Sticks that I can't wait to try.

  • Try out this Lemon-Lime Cupcakes recipe for St. Patrick's Day from Amber over at Living At The Whiteheads Zoo.

  •  Megan at Meg's Moxie shared an exercise option not to be missed free exercise options without leaving the house.

And as I said earlier, I was a busy bee here as well. Check out Kroger's Cart Buster Event to save today!  My Pin It To Win it giveaway is underway! And before you leave to visit my friends, take a minute to meet Rusty Mechanism he is a recycled marvel!

I love meeting new bloggers and reading their take on all sorts of subjects. I would love to meet you (and add you to my weekly roundups), so please leave me a comment.
