I have decided to continue using my Household Management Folder. I use this folder constantly so it made sense to maintain a system already in place that is working. This challenge will hopefully help to tweak things a little bit.
Task 2 - Create a cleaning Kit
At the moment I have cleaning products stored in the bathroom, laundry and kitchen, according to the needs of each area. In the kitchen and the bathroom I have a bottle of Homemade All Purpose Cleaner. (Check out this post for a really easy way to make this fantastic product!). This task is asking me to create a cleaning kit with all the items I need for cleaning stored in the bucket and then I take it with me when I clean. Hmmmm...it could work. No harm in trying. So, off to Bunnings or Woolworths to find a suitable bucket.

Task 3 - Morning Routine
Didn't see this one coming! Here's my morning routine I created back in February. However, I have a lot more going on between 5am and 6am now. Time for a new morning routine post!
Task 4 - Evening Routine
It's been good reviewing my routines. Here's my evening routine I created back in February. After reading The Organised Housewife's routine I noticed she hangs out her washing in the evening to take advantage of the morning sun. I've been hanging my washing out in the late afternoon and feeling guilty about it! Because it wasn't part of my routine, but I just haven't been able to get to it sooner. Knowing that someone who has it together does this has helped me to release the stress of trying to hang the washing out in the morning and include it in my evening routine. YAY!
Task 5 - Goals and Sorting Tubs
I am going with 3 nappy boxes as my sorting tubs, labelled 'Put Away', 'Give Away' & 'Throw Away'.
I want to feel relaxed while I am at home.
I want to spend more time with the kids.
I want an area of the home where I can craft at night.
I want to organise photos.
I always lose socks.
Something that I don't need anymore, but am having trouble parting with sewing material.
