Day #25: Pig-Sty.

So, I worked day 4 out of 5 and the house is a friggin mess. It seems whenever I am not off for a couple of days or I work a long stretch of 12 hour shifts, the house turns into a complete pig-sty. Dirty dishes, dirty laundry, piles of stuff everywhere. It becomes overwhelming, working all day and then coming home and having to clean the house. After 12 hours, I am physically and mentally exhausted, therefore cleaning is the last thing on my mind. I need to hire a maid...if only we had the money!

Here are some tips I found on another blog (The Peaceful Mom), for how to have a well-run home:

1. Get up early. 
2. Go to bed earlier so you can get up earlier. You will be more productive.
3. Prepare the evening before for the next day.
4. MEAL PLAN (I started-ish doing this one already. YAY!)
5. Do one complete load of laundry a day. (Good idea!)
6. Dishes done the night before.
7. Do a 5 minute quick clean in the bathrooms once a day.

All great ideas that I will slowly try to implement into our daily routine. Hopefully, I will be able to get Hubby on board.

So, I will begin this process on Monday, since it is my next day off. We already started the meal plans, next will be the 5 minute bathroom wipe down and the one load of laundry a day I think. 

Until tomorrow,

Big, Beautiful & Broke... Chelsea
