Figure out Your Why
Why are you taking time to complete a thorough cleaning? What’s your purpose and goal? Discuss as a family what areas of the house need cleaning and how you can stay on top of them year-round, before they get messy again. Signify how cleaning their rooms and folding laundry is responsible and will help with future endeavors. These actions are likely to help kids understand a good work ethic and appreciate what they have.
Create A List
Create a detailed checklist and prioritize everything inside and outside that needs cleaning. Be specific and write how you intend to get the job done. Visualize how you want your house to look and plan accordingly. Delegate responsibilities to each member of the family and work as a team!
