With 2 active kids, one large husband, a crazy beagle puppy, and my absent-minded self in one small home, it’s accurate to say that it’s challenging to keep our house clean!

Personally, I’d much rather clean for shorter amounts of time more frequently, but it feels overwhelming to decided what to prioritize when you only have 15 mins. So I keep a chart on the fridge that lets me check off small tasks as I complete them.
