Mondays can be rough. There are some days where I get a ton of stuff done, and other days where I literally can’t deal… so it just depends on my mood! I obviously clean my kitchen every time I use it, I wipe up messes when G eats, and I almost always do the dishes when I eat so that they don’t pile up, but I also spend my Monday getting my kitchen ready to be used.
First, I make sure the dishes are done, and I deep clean the sink and counters if they aren’t already clean. Then I wipe down the cupboards with some warm water and some dish soap. I do the same thing in my fridge and kind of re-organize it so I know what foods I have for the week. This is pretty much all I do in my kitchen other than deep cleaning my floors (vacuuming/mopping) but that’s coming up next!
So, I don’t sweep. I don’t have to. I have this gorgeous Dyson V6 Animal cordless vacuum and it literally does everything I could ever want and more. First I use the hardwood floor attachment and clean my floors downstairs (as you can see I have tile) so I don’t have to sweep at all, which is glorious. Then I vacuum my rugs downstairs with the carpet attachment! This takes all of five minutes if I’m wearing G, and I pretty much always do when I clean.
Then I go upstairs and vacuum our rooms and hallway. It’s pretty easy and done in ten minutes if I stay focused. I love the feeling of clean floors.
Also, confession: I use my vacuum almost every day when cleaning up after G when she eats on the carpet or in her high chair, haha. Honestly, it’s been a major life changer since my previous vacuum weighed like 50 pounds.
