My Monday Morning Homemaking Plan + Today’s Cleaning Project

My Monday Morning Homemaking Plan

It’s Monday and guess what that means? That means it’s time for our weekly deep-cleaning project! Every Monday morning this year, I’ll be assigning us all a deep-cleaning project to tackle (well, that is, if want to join us!)

Today’s project is to tackle your refrigerator. And I selfishly assigned this one because mine needs some serious TLC! 🙂

Here’s my plan for this morning:

  • Read my Bible, exercise, and shower.
  • Get dressed to my shoes. (Thanks, Flylady!)
  • Eat some breakfast, read aloud to the kids, start a load of laundry.
  • Morning chores with the kids.
  • Jesse take Kathrynne & Silas to the dentist. Kaitlynn stay home with me to work on her school projects.
  • Switch the laundry.
  • Clean out the refrigerator — toss expired items, wipe down shelves & door, re-organize.
  • Morning Time with the kids.

This evening, I’ll share a post about how my morning well and give you an update (with pictures) what I did and how my refrigerator-cleaning project went.

    Fridge it is!

  • Lana says:

    Fridge is on my list for Thursday. Today I have laundry and dusting the entire upstairs including window frames and chair rails.

  • Micah says:

    I clean my fridge every Friday! Thats grocery shopping day so before I put my new groceries away I go through everything and clean inside. So nice to freshen it up as new things are going in! 🙂

  • Cheryl Burtrum says:

    Today I washed tile and wood floors, put away laundry, scrubbed tub (really needed it, and hope to put away the Christmas decorations. I like to keep them up till he end of January. I’m off on Mon/Wed, so I try to get the heavy cleaning done on Mondays. My days start at 5:00 with devos, breakfast, take kids to school and then home to start the cleaning etc….

  • Today I am cleaning the baseboards, one area I typically miss. Even after vacuuming several times a week they still need to be wiped down.

  • Cari says:

    I guess I will unpack more this morning. Thanks for the motivation!

  • I’m actually joining the 30 day Neat and Tidy Challenge to get me organize. It starts on Wednesday. I’m trying to be more like you when it come to get my life on track.

  • I will be cleaning the fridge and making some more foaming soap. It’s much cheaper than buying foaming soap at the store.

  • Mary says:

    It is funny that today is refrigerator day. Mine is in need of a cleaning.

  • I’m in for a challenge. It’s already in my list of cleaning projects.

  • Amy says:

    I cleaned out the fridge today. I even dumped the 2 containers my husband has kept in there for almost 8 years of pickles his mother had made! Normally I just keep shoving them to the back, but I realized that if he hasn’t done anything with them in all this time, he has likely forgotten about them too. Besides, they cannot be safe to eat! We’ll see how long before he notices.

  • Sue says:

    I smiled when I saw your nod to Flylady. Her plan saved my house, my sanity and my relationships. The CHAOS acronym really spoke to me.

  • Jody says:

    I moved this summer so the fridge wasn’t too dirty or overrun with old food. But cleaning the refrigerator/stove/dishwasher are the most skipped items on my weekly cleaning list. Thanks for the motivation to finally get it done!!!

  • Kemi says:

    I cleaned my fridge up last week and will be working on the freezer this week with the 34 Days to Clean Challenge. So many challenges so little time. Our refrigerators can always use some extra love.

  • Melanie says:

    Cleaned the fridge. Only took 30 min to clean every shelf & drawer plus check for expired dates -makes me wonder why I put it off. Thanks for the motivation!
