Join us for the 30-Day House Cleaning Challenge in April!

April is around the corner and that means it’s time to start a new challenge here! I debated about a lot of different things, but finally landed on the 31-Day House Cleaning Routine printable to use as a guide.

Yes, April only has 30 days, so we’ll be adjusting it slightly. :)

Here’s how it will work:

::Every week day morning at around 9 a.m. EST, I’ll post the daily project for you to tackle. We’ll be following along with this list from FreshandOrganized.com, but I’ll be adjusting it a little and simplifying some of the projects for you that might feel overwhelming or too much to tackle in a day.

::Every evening at 6 p.m. EST, I’ll post a check-in post with pictures of my accomplishments and a linky for you to post links to your blog posts if you’re blogging about the challenge.

::Want to blog about this challenge? If you’re blogging through this challenge with me, be sure to leave your link to your direct post on the daily check-ins. Plus, if you’d like to post your daily posts to the 30-Day House Cleaning Challenge Pinterest Group, just shoot me an email (moneysavingmom @ gmail dot com) and I’ll invite you.

::Want to follow along on Twitter or Instagram? I’ll also be sharing some of my cleaning pictures on my Facebook Page, my Twitter account, and my Instagram account. I’d love to have you do the same or join in the discussion on Twitter and Instagram. Just follow hashtag #Cleanin30 to see what others are tweeting and Instagramming about this challenge!

Note: We will be taking weekends off. You can do the project on the list if you’d like. Or just enjoy the weekend off. It’s up to you!

In April, I’ll also be sharing some homemade cleaning recipe experiments, as well as possibly some posts with tricks and tips for keeping your home more clean and organized (have a guest post idea related to this topic? Submit it here.)

Who’s joining me?

Leave a comment to let us know you’re planning to participate. The more, the merrier!

    I will be! I have a 1 1/2 year old and a 2 1/2 year old so I will be doing my best! Any cleaning is better than one!

  2. Phillis says

    I will give it a shot. After looking over the list I think 20 minutes on some projects is really optimistic but as flylady says, ” A job done imperfectly still blesses the family. ” :)

  3. Kim says

    ok..ok… I hate house cleaning but I will give it a go cuz my house desperately needs help.

  4. Kerry says

    I’m in!! I’ve been looking for a way to get my house clean & organized that doesn’t seem so overwhelming. This seems simple enough & being part of the “group” will help keep me on track. Thanks!!

  5. Dahlee Johansen says

    I just saw this but I’m in. I really need some support and help in cleaning and organizing the mess that’s taking over our apartment. :)

  6. Beth says

    I’m in but I have a question Do you do these on top of what you already do each day? IE. I vacuum and sweep every day if not a couple times a day.

  7. Arantxa Vázquez says

    My mom told me last night that she want me too clean the living room, so I found this and the first day is tha living room :D So I’ll tell her that we should follow this challenge cuz’ our house is a really MESS because of the vacations, so I’m gonna start and when she come home I will surprise her!

    Sorry if my english is not good at all but I’m from México c:
    This is really cool :D

  8. Shauna VW says

    I am in, although I am a night owl so I can’t always promise I’ll have it done by 6 pm when everyone else starts posting pictures, but it will be done by midnight! :)

  9. Portia B. says

    I just started Spring Cleaning and I’m 6 months pregnant so the task seems daunting. This is just what I need, thanks!

  10. lisa says

    Going to do it too……but with the 3 year old tornado right behind me no one will be able to tell. LOL! at least I will know that I did it. Maybe some pictures as proof to show the hubby!

  11. Alicia says

    We are participating in this, Crystal! My girls are doing it with me, too. It makes spring cleaning fun.

  12. Linda says

    I’m in….got a slow start but will pick up…..any cleaning is better than none!

  13. says

    OH I saw this late, but I’m still going to do the challenge! this is a great idea, thanks for the printouts Crystal! :)

  14. Marguerite says

    I saw your picture of Saline solution. I read once in an Alexandra Stoddard book that you should always “decant” your mouthwash. I thought it was funny at the time. But I bought two decanters for @ $12 on Amazon. They do make a difference in how the countertop looks. Alexandra says too that there should always be someting yellow in a room and ceilings should not be painted white. Check her books out.

  15. Rene Genau says

    I’m going to give this a shot but I might need to rewind to the top of the list when May 1st rolls around. Thanks for the list and the inspiration!
