My New Years Resolution:
I will admit I am not the best housekeeper. My husband is actually the one that loves to clean and organize. I simply maintain what it is he does. He has a bit of OCD so things have to be nice, neat and organized. He also doesn’t like clutter, he prefers a open area.
Where he has OCD and loves to be organized, I just don’t notice things like he does. I swear we are reversed…he’s the woman I’m the man in this aspect lol.
My goal this year is to have a cleaning schedule. I have found I function a lot better with a routine. I did a quick google search and found a few graphics that are printable of a cleaning schedule that is daily and also weekly and monthly for deep cleaning.

Do you have any new years resolutions this year? I’d love to hear what yours are.
