So, yea, I have been in my home for almost 10 years now. It’s a tiny little house that my husband and I bought right after we got married. The size, the price, everything was perfect for us. Since then, we have added 3 children and LOTS of stuff. Toys, clothes, furniture– you name it– we probably have it in this house! Since having my little guy (he’s 6 months now), this house sure has seemed to shrink, and let me tell you– it is driving me NUTS! Thankfully, I have been able to purge a ton, but with 3 kiddos, a hubby who has to have THREE wardrobes (work, home, and hunting– lol), and myself who has not one, but TWO jobs from home, well needless to say stuff piles up pretty quick. And then my sanity runs away. I can’t take the clutter!
But I am READY to tackle this house. I am ready to get it into ship shape and I am ready to make it a home until God blesses us with a bigger one. Which I hope will be really soon. 950 square feet for 5 people is not a ton of space. So, to get a routine started for myself I created a very simple chore list for me and my family. I made it simple, because too many chores at once overwhelms me, and I made it funky, because well, I am a little on the nutty side and I like to create cute, fun things. I know mustaches are all the rage right now, so I wanted to make something that appealed to a lot of people.. adults and children alike!
Since today was Monday, I went ahead and started with the bathrooms. Now with any bathroom cleaning, you need something durable to wipe off all your bathroom surfaces! I found these Viva Vantage paper towels (click!) at Walmart the other day and thought they would get the job done perfectly. I especially like to use paper towels for my mirrors because fabric towels leave lint all over the mirror. That drives me crazy! So, I wanted to try this particular brand because 1)I love the Viva brand and 2)they looked durable and awesome.
I hate when paper towels tear and they don’t have the durability to keep up with my messy family. These have a V-Flex Weave that gives it some awesome scrubbing power for the dirtiest of messes. It also has stretch and softness to help clean delicate surfaces as well.
I love the ridges in these towels. They really grip to your surfaces and help scrub the dirties away in a gentle way. I really felt like they were giving my mirrors a really good cleaning with the help of my glass cleaner!
These Viva Vantage towels deserve their very own selfie in my newly cleaned mirror. I wanted to show you how clear my mirror looked. I am super duper impressed! I can’t wait to use these to tackle the rest of my daily chores, and I can see myself having a long term relationship with these. They are pretty great!
And that chore list? It’s made a cameo appearance on my newly cleaned refrigerator, front and center. This will help to keep me accountable and on top of my daily home-makingry! If you like it– be sure to print it!
