I’ve got to confess something to you guys…I am the messiest person ever. No, really. Growing up my nickname was “messy” and some of my relatives still call me that to this day. :/ When it comes to keeping my house clean, I need a schedule that will work with my limited amount of free time and keep my kids from living in the muck!

I’ve been using a 12 Month Cleaning Schedule that allows me to focus on one thing a month to deep clean and it’s been working pretty well! I try to tidy up the house here and there (which becomes now and then!) but at least I know that for one month my floors will be amazing or that my mattress was rotated. This stuff might come as second nature to some of you amazing housewives out there but seriously, if I don’t see it on a list, I won’t do it!

May is all about getting the garage and yard ready for Summer. Max and I picked up the Rubbermaid FastTrack 5 piece set at Target last week to help us organize the gardening tools mess that usually resides in the corner of our garage. I got my husband to help install it so that I could take pictures of the process but it was so ridiculously easy to put in that I totally could have done it myself (and I’m not usually the DIY sort!)
The only thing we had to adjust was using different anchors for our thick adobe walls. Rubbermaid provides the white anchors which work perfectly if your house isn’t from 1937 and the garage is made with something other than drywall. The provided anchors weren’t wide enough to span the thickness of our walls so we substituted. Not a big deal but good to know in case any of you live in older houses.
I like that it’s sturdy enough to hold heavy items like extension cords or machinery but easy enough to switch out the attachments to match our growing needs. We’re even thinking of buying more to add a bike rack along the bottom. Awesome, right?! In case you’re interested in getting your own Rubbermaid FastTrack Kit, they’re on sale in Target stores for $28.89 from 5/18 – 5/24 (regular $33.99). Score!
I’ve got a week and a half more of May and of cleaning out the garage. Even if I don’t get it all done, feels so good to have worked on it! Feel free to download my 12 Month Cleaning Schedule to help you organize your house. I’ve also included a blank schedule just in case you want to customize. Happy Cleaning!
