Homekeeping Society | January 2015 Essentials

January 2015  Homekeeping Society - Clean Mama

It’s almost the New Year (yikes!) and if you feel like you need a little extra help getting motivated, you will be thrilled with January’s HOMEKEEPING SOCIETY.  I am so excited to have so many of YOU keeping up with the everyday tasks with the help of the Homekeeping Society.  January’s monthly essentials are sweet and celebratory, perfect for all those goals and resolutions!  If you’re a member (log in here) and if you’d like to purchase today, it’s an instant (almost – it might a few minutes) download.

The Homekeeping Society MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION is designed to create order out of your household chaos and help you keep your home clean and your mind less cluttered. Take a peek at what I’ve created for the busy month of January – you’re going to love it!  The PERFECT start to the New Year!

Keeping a home clean can be both rewarding and frustrating. Sure, it’s possible to get your home clean, but to keep it that way can be the biggest challenge. Throw in the additions of busy schedules, jobs, kids, chaos and lack of time and it can feel downright defeating many days. Why bother cleaning when it’s only going to be a mess again the next day!

I understand just where you are coming from. Keeping your home clean while maintaining your sanity can be incredibly stressful. You may feel as though you can’t do anything right when it comes to maintaining a clean, organized, and welcoming home and even if you could find the time, you wouldn’t know where to start.

Need some serious help, a virtual hand to hold and guide you through the process of cleaning, homekeeping, and creating a home you feel proud of? That’s exactly why I created the Homekeeping Society, the perfect monthly intervention that is purposely designed to get your life and home in order with ease and adorable seasonal touches to keep you motivated.

Make Ahead Baked Goods for the Holiday Table

Make Ahead Baked Goods for the Holiday Table via Clean Mama

I love to bake.  I also love to bake ahead and fill the freezer with yummy baked goods for the holidays.  It would most definitely be easier to purchase rolls from your local bakery or grocery store for Thanksgiving dinner, but if you made the rolls ahead of time and froze them that would fall under the 'seasonal' shortcut' category.  So if you were going to bake something for the holiday table anyway, why not make it ahead and freeze it and take … [Continue reading...]
