Motivational Monday | Weekly Cleaning Routines + Free Printout

Keeping the house clean is something I definitely struggle with. Getting into a grove is so hard. Having routines helps me so much.
One of my goals for the new year is to get organized. I am doing this a couple of ways.
First thing I did was create a Daily and Weekly system to help keep me focused and on track.

Here is my Weekly Routine. I made this to help me out and I want to share with you. Feel free to print for yourself and share for others to use.

Second I started my Youtube  again with my channel focusing on mom and lifestyle topics. I have way to much stuff and I am going to declutter my house on my Youtube as a way to hold me accountable. To Subscribe click the link below.

🌴 8 Reasons I Love Trader Joe's + Mini Haul 🌴

Trader Joe's is one of my favorite places to shop. There are many reasons for this and if you have shopped at Trader Joe's you may relate to a few of them.
They always have unique and delicious seasonal items.                                      The people are extremely friendly, they go above and beyond in their Hawaiian shirts. Customer service is top notch.             You can literally ask to try anything in the store and they will sample it for you.                                          Free coffee! Duh.                  Cheap. Inexpensive. A true Bargain. Lots of organic, gluten free and vegan options available at a great price.                         Nostalgia. As the kid we shopped at Trader Joe's. It reminds me of home.          They have a sense of humor and the signs are are all over the store. Literally the have the most unique, creative signs that I find hilarious.   Underrated skincare and wine. Wine is considered skincare. I mean anti oxidants, right??…
