Say Hello to My Little Friend

A blog that I confess that I stalk introduced me to the hallelujah glory that is Motivated Moms. I often find that I let the cleaning around the house pile up. When the house becomes a desperate situation I would much rather sit on the couch feeling overwhelmed than actually clean. Then came Motivated Moms. It is a system that breaks down your house cleaning day by day into a very manageable list. It includes daily chores to keep the house sparkling as well as the things you should be doing every day in the house. The working mom might find the schedule overwhelming, but someone that works from home, stays at home, or works part time will find this extremely helpful.

Think about it this way: what sounds more overwhelming, clean the whole bathroom or clean all the toilets in the house? Breaking it down into segments takes the overwhelming factor out and keeps the house maintained. I actually timed myself and it took me 12 minutes to clean all 5 toilets! I could go on and on, but please go check it out. Over the month of December I will be having several chances to enter the contest to win a free year subscription to Motivated Moms.

First question for entry: What is the one cleaning product you cannot live without?

Disclaimer - I am in no way a part of Motivated Moms, I just think it is totally awesome!

  1. Ok, I'm obviously not a mom, but looking at your binder that you have, I can say with confidence this would be put to good use.

    What cleaning product can I not live without? Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day spray. Ha, and I have you to thank for that, if I remember correctly...

  2. Yeah, I agree with Sarah...I'm def jealous of the binder. Does the year-long subscription come with the binder that you put together? ;) for the ONE cleaning product I can't live without...I'd have to say probably something like my Clorox Sanitizing Wipes. I keep a huge canister under the kitchen sink, in the half bath, in our bathroom, in the hall closet...etc. Now if I could just learn to USE them...

  3. Clorox wipes are my can't live without product they are amazing!

  4. My cleaning product would have to be Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. They are AWESOME. Ps. I need to see this binder. :) I started one... didn't get too far.. especially in implementing it.

  5. Paper towels - use TONS of them when I clean. If that doesn't count - Weiman Stainless Steel Wipes! AWESOME!

  6. It is an age old product, but I will not clean without plain old Windex. Simple as that. #2 is Scrubbing Bubbles. Love that stuff.
