Cleaning Strategy

As you all know, we transfer to a bigger house and with garden (if your new to my blog just read my previouse post here ) As a mother, one of our dilemma will be how to manage to clean the whole house. So, as usual, we have to check the internet. So, I run over all the ideas, and opinions, especially to the stay-home mom and also for the busy mothers out there. I compiled it what is better to do clean, easy and time wisely.I don’t want to clean the house entirely in just one day. Yup, I hate cleaning. We have to prioritize first the one we always use, like sweeping and mopping the floor (esp. the kitchen) because of water drops whenever they get something and they wash their hands in the sink. De-clutter, pick-up all those unwanted stuff in the living room, dining, kitchen etc. That’s my first thing to do every morning. (De-clutter, Sweep, and Mop) Check all the sites below for your information.

8-1

This schedule above I find it useful (click the link here for more information) some items not related to our house but, still I find it useful.

More information click here. At least, in this ideas above, your can figure out which comes first and last. So, this time it will be scheduling. I incorporated my bullet journal in cleaning the house. Here’s the some ideas below for house chores schedule.

They usually use by area. (More details : click here)

So, mine just simple weekly house chores in my bujo (Jan-June 2018) I usually put on my ultimate tracker from Housechores, Social Media and Personal.

Tracking also when was the last time I change… then, my weekly/daily cleaning routine.

They all same style for except the May month. I don’t like it so, I’m back with this style. But for my July is different. (sort of).

 

Bullet Journal really helps me to do everything in place. Because you will just focus the day that you’re written on your daily routine. As a woman sometimes we sort of forgetting something and also how to compress your time from cleaning, kids, social media and also my gaming time (kids at heart) as you sit in front of the tv. You find yourself productive even though you didn’t notice it. Right? Anyway, I will do separate post again regarding my bullet journal supplies (budget friendly).

This is my everyday cleaning routine. Some heavy stuff like doing floor wax my hubby takes the charge he will do it every month, cleaning the car and storage outside.

Before I end. Hopefully, this will help you to do your everyday cleaning routine and here’s some tips from Nifty on Buzzfeed .

My Daughter First Field Trip

This is the first trip of my daughter. It was in Kanazawa Zoo. It’s our 2nd time visited this zoo. My daughter enjoyed it a lot. Happy kids but whenever she sees insects she’s scared so much. She will scream continuously while screaming she’s crying at the same time.

img_6283_zpsrlcza1g7img_6273_zpscq0mjcak

The weather is clear and dry. Great for the field trip and their’s a lot of schools also doing field trips. A bit crowded.

We also eat our lunch box (bento) before we go home because my son will go home early because tomorrow will be their Sports Feast (Day). I will post separately for his sports day. Anyway, we go home after we ate our lunch box. the trip end 11:30pm so anyone can stay and go around but as we go home. Below, some pictures from the trip.

House Transformation

Last January as I posted on my previous blog that we moved from Osaka to Yokohama because of my husband job/work which is bigger company and compensation. Of course, my husband grabs the better opportunity and good for the family as well. Okay, Let’s go for our new house tour. But, first the house background. We bought the house not brand new. The owner bought it in the auction but not actually lives here and then he decided to sell it because it’s getting old. So, he’s not the original owner as well. Below are the pictures and after we cleaned, renovate esp the garden and arrange our things inside.

 

(Above) front of the house:  Before: As you can see lots of plants sprouting on the fence and side of the house After Pictures, New fence, and removed the plants and trees.

 

But, before putting the fence. We have to paint the house so, that it will look nice from the outside.

Below, the floor map of the House. It has 6 rooms (1 Japanese room – 1st flr. 1 master bedroom, 3 rooms with loft and 1 guest room, 2 shower room, 2 toilets & 1 bathroom) and walking closet)

map_zpsxrxblvsf

It was really hard to find a new place especially if your budget is not that big and also the locations as well. We want more a residential place, quiet and good neighborhood as well. But, we have to find schools that are a bit near to the house as well for the kids convenient.

Below pictures are before. (1st floor)

Below the after of the house (cleaned, renovate and arrange)

We still lacking some stuff to be organized but pretty much looks like that.

Below, the before pictures of the 2nd floor of the house.

Below the After pictures

What good about this house was the garden. I love it!. Having a house in Japan rarely to have a huge house especially in a big city.

We had our housewarming (May 26) with our church friends at the Yokohama Internation Bible Church.

Below are the other pictures that on progress.

Btw, I got also my own room for my Crafts, Sewing, Arts, Knitting & Crochet.  Now, we can call it a Home.

My DIY Welcome wreath and some decoration as well. Loving it!

And, sorry I was so busy these past days it’s been a long delay to post.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a great day!

companion to the driver which is my husband, he might get sleepy when he sees me sleeping. I better to do something so, I bring along the iPad to watch Marvel Marathon that’s 14 movies on the row. Good Idea, but he needs to take a nap or break in a service area.

Even though is tiring drive, but when you see the place it was breathtaking. The Sea and Greenery mountain, full of trees. I’m a nature lover this kind of place will rarely be seen in the city.

After shopping, Kids turn. We went to the Aquarium a bit far took us 1hr going there.

There was a lot of people it was crowded :-(.

The aquarium is home to 40,000 animals of approximately 500 different species found in the sea waters near Noto Peninsula.

You will forget all about the time as you enjoy a variety of aquarium attractions and activities such as dolphins and sea lion show, otter feeding, penguins’ stroll, the sea bream’s world of light and sound, etc. Notojima Aquarium offers various interactive activities to the visitors such as animal feeding, touching animals such as dolphins and so on.
