DIY Cleaning Caddy and Free printable cleaning schedule to help make cleaning quick and easy so you can spend time with your family! #‎ad‬ ‪#‎WindexMovieNight‬

I’ll be the first person to tell you that cleaning isn’t my strong suit. I’ve never been blessed with the desire to clean. However, it’s not something anyone can get away with just not doing because they don’t like it, so I’ve taken several steps to try to make cleaning easier and more fun.  I just want to be able to get my cleaning over with quickly so I can spend time with my family.

I’ve found that figuring out what to clean when is half the battle for me.  Because I’m not cleaning-minded, I don’t necessarily notice the things that need to be cleaned.  To get past this, I’ve created a cleaning list for myself.

I’ve set up my cleaning list based on my life.  Our garbage gets picked up on Fridays, so I clean out the fridge and empty all the garbages in the house on Thursday.  I have some friends that come over on Wednesdays, so I vacuum before they come.

If you have a hard time figuring out where to start with cleaning, this list is for you!  Print it out (the pdf doesn’t have a watermark, so don’t worry!), and either laminate it or slip it in a page protector, and then cross off each item as you do it.

Another thing I’ve done to make cleaning easier is to create a cleaning caddy.  My cleaning caddy contains the cleaning supplies for my whole house, making it easy to move all the cleaning supplies around the house for whatever task is at hand. 

When I decided to create a cleaning caddy, I headed to my local Kroger Banner Store, Fred Meyer.  I knew I would be able to pick up all my cleaning and organizational supplies in one trip to save me even more time!

By using both the printable and the cleaning caddy, I’m able to get my cleaning done in a jiff, so I can hang out with my family.  We enjoy hiking, biking, camping, skiing, and basically just anything outdoors!

So what supplies do you need in your cleaning caddy?  Here are the ones I keep in mine:

Cleaning Caddy

  • Toilet bowl cleaner
  • General bathroom cleaner
  • Windex® Original Glass Cleaner & jersey rag for cleaning mirrors and windows
  • Cleaning sponge or rag for cleaning counters and tub
  • Rubber gloves
  • Microfiber cloths
  • Sponge
  • Dusting Solution
  • Pumice stone

Optional items to add:

  • Paper towels to clean anything nasty
  • Steel wool (if you have a stainless steel sink, you may want this)

Every time I think about Windex® the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding comes to mind!  If you haven’t seen it before, you must watch it to understand why it conjures up images of Windex® Original Glass Cleaner.  It’s such a hilarious movie, with eccentric characters, but what I really love is how it places such a value on family, and spending time together with our families. 

While Windex® may not be usable for all of the dad’s claims, it really does have a lot of great uses.  It’s the only product that gets a streak free clean on my windows every time.  I use Windex® to clean the faucet of my sink to make it shine, to wipe out the kitchen sink and make it sparkle, and to make my mirrors beautiful!  You can follow the Windex® facebook page or twitter feed to get more fabulous tips for cleaning.

I am looking forward to seeing My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 that will be in theaters on March 25th.  I’ve been stalking their facebook page in my excitement!  I can’t wait to see how things play out, and get some more deep belly laughs from the Windex® humor, and the fun family interactions.

If you’re excited for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, I have a great offer to share with you!  Right now, when you buy any participating Windex® brand products at Kroger and upload your receipt here, you will get an offer code on Fandango to redeem $3 toward your movie ticket to see My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2! Go check it out and save money while enjoying a fabulous film!

I actually JUST got a caddy to hold my cleaning products. I need to use those printables to make it easier! #client

The printables have helped me so much! A little every day, and the house stays clean (well, as clean as it can stay with 3 little ones!).

I love the cleaning caddy. We have one but don't really use it! Thank you for the great tips!

A cleaning caddy was a must at our old house, because it was 3 levels. In a smaller home, it may not be as necessary, but even if it's just holding all the supplies that seems to help!
