As promised, here is my before bed routine. Flylady has it broken down into three categories: Cleaning, Planning, and Focusing on Yourself.
For cleaning, I have Kitchen
Clean cat box
Sweep and spot mop as needed
Pick up and put away things
Hotspots (flat surfaces that collect random stuff) Laundry
Make sure everything is dry and folded (Basically nothing sitting in the machines or in baskets getting wrinkled.)
Make to-do list
Thaw meat for tomorrow’s dinner if necessary
Lay out clothes for tomorrow
Honestly I don’t have a set routine, other than things like taking out my contacts, brushing my teeth and putting on my pjs. I try to just sit for a few minutes or read or watch a little tv. Whatever feels most relaxing. Sometimes I have something hot to drink, if I’m not holding the baby.
It sounds like a lot, but once I get into the habit, I can usually get it all done in well under an hour, especially if I’ve had a few minutes here and there throughout the evening to knock some things off the list.
