It’s officially only been a couple of days since the schools in our state closed, due to the coronavirus global pandemic. Our family has decided to self quarantine. We aren’t going anywhere aside from the occasional quick trip to the grocery store (and by quick, I mean 2 hours because that’s how long it took for Super Dad to pick up the handful of things on my list). Don’t worry though, he put on his gardening gloves (yes, gardening gloves) and stays a safe distance from others.
If you’re anything like us, you’re trying to figure out how to get things done with a house full of kids. Not only do I still have to work from home (and so grateful for that), but I also have to feed the kids, make sure they are doing their schoolwork and somehow take care of the house, which seems to be getting messier by the minute. It’s enough to drive us all insane.
I need structure. Otherwise, I fall off course and my house looks like a tornado went through it. I was planning on putting together a plan to make sure that since we are spending at least the next two weeks at home, that we are spending that time wisely. I want to organize the pantry, the laundry room and the kitchen. I want to get into the girls rooms and declutter. I want to be able to donate a bunch of things when this whole situation has calmed down. But most of all, I want to make sure that our house is clean and disinfected. The coronavirus is not welcome here.
So when I saw my friend Amy had created a cleaning and organizing calendar (she calls it “Quaran-Clean 2020), I asked her if I could share it with all of you and she was gracious enough to agree. Keep reading for the free printable download!
But first, let me share a little about my friend, Amy aka @confessionsofamomster. I met Amy during freshman year of high school, a whopping 29 years ago (holy crap, we are getting old). She’s always been someone I look up to, but even more so now that we are grownups. Amy is the mother of 2 beautiful girls, a former teacher and small business owner and a definite Super Mom. Amy is a master of all things DIY. You can usually find her driving her girls to various activities like soccer or dance or going overboard, making everything on Pinterest (and totally rocking it all). One day, I’m hoping that she gives in and starts blogging because she has so much to share and I know people will love her as much as I do! Make sure to follow her on Instagram. She’s constantly sharing family friendly recipe ideas and awesome tools like this Quaran-Clean calendar.
It’s is an easy to follow, printable calendar that breaks everything down into one project a day, so you aren’t overwhelmed. By the time you are finished self-isolating, social distancing, being quarantined or whatever it is you’re calling this, your home will be neatly organized and clean! You can even get the kids involved (hopefully you have enough quarantine snacks to bribe them with). I love that she included the car and the computer because heaven knows both of those things get neglected over here.
It’s easy to download. Just click Quaran-Clean 2020 and enter your email. You’ll immediately get a link to the printable. I recommend saving it to your computer if you want to print it out, or to your phone if you want to save the paper. Best part is, you can work this into your own schedule. You can choose to clean and organize at night while the kids are in bed. You can clean first thing in the morning so you have the rest of the day to spend time with your family or get your other tasks done.
I’m planning on getting started tomorrow. How about you?
