October 2014 Cleaning Calendar

Happy October!  It’s my favorite month of the year…because it’s my birthday, AND Fall kind of officially arrives here in the Lowcountry.  The end of September kind of knocked us upside down with allergies and sinus infections, numerous guests, beginning a new sports/Bible Study/Dave Ramsey Class schedule.  So, I’m glad that October is here, and we can get back on track!

So here is my October 2014 Cleaning Calendar. Click on this link, or on the picture to download and print a copy for yourself.

September 2014 Cleaning Calendar

Good morning!  There is just something about September that makes me want to break out my boots and order a Pumpkin Spice Latte.  Even though it’s still 104 degrees outside!  Dave and I have had many discussions lately about decluttering and simplifying our life, so I figure this month is as good as any to really do a good cleaning out of the house.  In addition to the things listed on my September 2014 Cleaning Calendar, I plan on making some much-needed trips to Goodwill, and really paring down the amount of “stuff” we have around.

We are blessed to have a big beautiful house, but I feel like we take it for granted most of the time, and use all of that extra space to collect “stuff.”  We have so many projects and improvements we’d like to do to the house, but I feel like we can’t get our thoughts together because of the clutter!

For me, our worst room is our bedroom.  We have mismatched furniture, piles of “stuff” looking for a home, and admittedly, it’s the last room in our house that gets cleaned {mostly because no-one ever sees it!}.  One of these days I’d love to do a makeover in there….I have lots of ideas {just no money or time!}.

If you could make-over a room in your house, what would it be?

August 2014 Cleaning Calendar

It’s hard to believe that the summer is already coming to a close.  I was thinking that since we had a newborn, we would be taking it easy this summer…not exactly the case!  Between weekend trips to Florida and North Carolina, Vacation Bible School, and all sorts of action and giveaways on the blog, we’ve been very busy!

But now, with the school year starting soon and life settling back into a routine, it’s time to clean again.  I’m not gonna lie, I kinda fell off the bandwagon this summer.  So hopefully my August 2014 Cleaning Calendar will get me {and you!} back on track!  Happy cleaning!

April 2014 Cleaning Calendar

I cannot believe April is already here!  I have less than 7 weeks before Little Man comes into our lives….and apparently I have a lot to do.  This month, I’ll be using a combination of my April 2014 Cleaning Calendar, and I’ll be utilizing some Groupons for professional cleaning services.  Hey, they were good deals, and frankly, I physically can’t do a lot of the spring cleaning I’d like to be doing!!  So, I admit I need some help!

Here’s your copy of the April 2104 Cleaning Calendar.  Stick it on your fridge and do one little chore a day!

March 2014 Cleaning Calendar

I don’t care what that dumb ‘ol groundhog said, I prefer to think that Spring is just around the corner!  Even though most of the east coast is still dealing with winter, snow and crazy weather…there’s hope!

So, let’s stay positive and move on with our spring cleaning calendar!  Here is the March 2014 Cleaning Calendar.  I put a few things on there {like cleaning out the inside of your window frames} that are perfect ways to have your little ones help get ready for spring!

So stay optimistic about Spring: turn on the radio, open your windows {put on a coat} and get to cleaning!!

February 2014 Cleaning Calendar

Guess what?  Apparently, it’s February already!  A friend of mine commented to me last night that it was, indeed, February.  And, where was my February 2014 cleaning calendar?  Call it Pregnancy Brain…but February managed to sneak up on me, and I didn’t even know it!  So, I apologize that I’m a few days late with this!

February 2014 Cleaning Calendar from Palmettos and Pigtails

Here’s my confession, I don’t do these items in order, on the correct days.  I pick and choose the item{s} I want to do each day.  So if I slack off one day, then I’ll choose two easy items to “make up for it” the next day.  It’s like a game to me to check off everything in the calendar by the end of the month….however I can get it done.  Which includes assigning tasks to my kids!  For instance, Jayna LOVES to disinfect all the light switches and knobs.  I give her a Clorox wipe and let her scrub away {I can trust her with the wipes, and I make sure she washes her hands really good after she’s done!}.  Millie likes to “help” me dust.  {Hey, I didn’t say that the chores were completed perfectly…..}  Anything to get those check marks!  Want to know how else my kids help out?  Click here to see my list of Age Appropriate Chores for Kids {featured in the LowCountry Parent Magazine!}.

January 2014 Cleaning Calendar

Happy New Year!  Sorry I’m a week late in your January 2014 Cleaning Calendar.  Things have been a whirlwind around here…we’ve had a ton of family in town for the holidays, then we turned right around on New Year’s Day and traveled up to Maryland for my new God-daughter’s baptism.

We got back today, so I’ll be busy this week editing pictures, putting Christmas decorations away, and laundry.  Lots. Of. Laundry.  But I can’t wait to share pictures from our holidays with you!  In the meantime, here is your first cleaning calendar of the year!  If you are like me and have gotten off to kind of a slow start this year, this calendar is for you, as I’ve broken down the chores even more this month as to not overwhelm!  Happy Cleaning!
