Keeping up on house work is a tough job for new moms. They are tired, not usually feeling perky, and have a hard time finding the time to make sure the house remains in order. This is especially true if the baby is brand new, and is demanding a lot of care. There are some things however that busy mommy’s can do to keep up on all the tasks around the house, without sucking up too much time to do so, and the best way to accomplish this is with basic chores lists.
Breaking House Work Down
Breaking down the tasks into sizable chunks is a great way to do bits and pieces, allowing the house to get cleaned during the week, and not all in one day. This also means that a busy mom can devote the time she needs to her family and not just the floors. Here is a sample list that works well:
1. Monday: clean bathrooms. This might sound basic enough, but the bathroom is an area that is alway lurking and rarely gets attended to.
2. Tuesday: clean kitchen. Make this a top to bottom cleaning. This will help keep things organized for the rest of the week. Consider making this the grocery shopping day as well.
3. Wednesday: Laundry catch up, and tidy master bedroom. This is a great way to get all that laundry cleaned and ready to go.
Create a list for the rest of the week. You will find out what works best for you, and what type of routine you prefer.
