Hi good morning! Have you ever noticed that you can make a list you can even do everything on your list and then even blank or turn around and it’s like nothing ever got done! This is my situation lately at least what it seems like and honestly started me a little bonkers!
Hi I’m Kandis and welcome to classy classics by Kandis! I am a stay-at-home mother of four children from the ages of almost 13 down to almost three! I love them all but holy man do they make a mess. My children all have zones well my older kids have zones but they are required to help clean up everyday! A pretty good that’s definitely not Mama clean but, they are kids and not a mom so there will be a difference I guess!
We live in our house that we are in right now for 3 years and, it is a much bigger house than the one that we came from! Like much bigger than my little house yes, that was the point that’s why we moved we out grew our house and, I I love my house I love the space but I am definitely trying to figure out how to keep it all looking like a house and not a zoo!
I have tried a couple different routines. I have tried daily tasks for trying to cover all floors for example, to do the floors well then I’m vacuuming upstairs sweeping and mopping the main floor and trying to vacuum or clean the cement floors downstairs!
I have tried and being using zone cleaning where each week I am in a certain zone of my house and I pretty much try to totally take care of that one’s own room through the week then just tidy the others!
I have also been trying out combining both, I did this a couple years ago and it was working pretty good, and then life happened I lost my rhythm!
I have debated about just doing weekly running list where I have a list of a bunch of stuff that I want to get down that week and depending on how much time and what motivation I have depending on what task I do that day off the list! However that one is hard for me because I will only do my basics and just roll matter tasks over literally forever!
Do you have a system or do tasks as the need to be done?
I have decided that I think I’m going to try to order an hourly planner for the new year and see if I can organize my stuff that way! I’m actually very excited about trying to do a hourly planner!
Do you have a planner or just do lists!
I think with just the overload of changes in different schedules and trying to find my whole group again has kind of thrown me for a loop! It’s hard for me to shake out of it this round and I look forward to getting everything resituated and hopefully on a smoother train again! Choo choo
I am the type of person that does do better when I have schedules and routines I know this. But, too get out of my thoughts of how I had everything going and to try to re crop it but, still knowing what it’s going to work the best for me I think is what being is being tricky!
I do look forward to this new task of making a smoother system!
I hope this gave you a little motivation to get a cleaning rythem happening! There is something about having a clean kitchen in the morning that is addicting lol!
If you don’t follow me on Facebook and Instagram I will have links below!

Mothers can do anything but, together we are unstoppable!

Bye for now!
