Tip Junkie - Craft #1

Last week, I came across this amazing website that I instantly feel in love with! Tip Junkie. This website has everything you could need to become crafty. And I say become because I, lady friend, am no Martha Stewart. So I spend a some hours time looking around the site to see what project I could do with little to no effort. I want to start small and move up to bigger and better crafts.Ones that will impress you.

I've been talking for weeks about getting a schedule together for all the cleaning that needs to be done around the house. Let's face it, I'm 6 months pregnant and tend to get tired after working 45+ hours a week and the last thing I want to do is clean. But, because I'm one amazing wife, I take care of business regardless of how tired I am (again, I'm being smart). But I need help. So I searched TJ and found the most adorable cleaning schedules that were FREE to print.

Here is the link to the printable schedules: Cleaning Schedules. I choose the Dot-to-Dot Weekly Cleaning Schedule. It's very flexible and easy to see when place on the fridge. Simply color in the dot on the day(s) you’re planning to accomplish each task. And the best part, it's already working for me. Saturday, I got up and cleaned the entire house, top to bottom. On Sunday, I looked at my schedule and I had marked that Sundays were spend doing laundry and meal planning! EASY! So by 11, I had all my chores done and could spend the rest of the day being lazy planning my baby shower (more on that later this week).

Here is a picture of mine in action:

It's not the best photo, but you get the idea. I just printed the cleaning schedule and laminated it. I had some extra magnet pieces and glued those to the back. And ta da! A finished project!

What I'm loving the most is I know this evening when I get off work all I need to do is clean the bathroom and sweep/mop the kitchen floor. Easy!! I am really hoping this keeps the cleaning manageable for me and that I can incorporate it my new job this fall!

  2. I love Tip Junkie too! This is so cute. I've been telling myself that I need a cleaning schedule or chart to keep myself on top of things but I haven't found one I really love yet. Yours is super cute though!
