My Before Bed Routine

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
  • Clear table
  • Wash dishes
  • Sweep and spot mop as needed

Living room

  • 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.)
For Planning
  • Check¬†Calendar
  • Make to-do list
  • Make lunches
  • Thaw meat for tomorrow’s dinner if necessary
  • Lay out clothes for tomorrow
For me
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.
