Cue the fall vibes! It’s time to get ready for back-to-school season and prepare your home for a fresh fall start. Summer is coming to an end and it’s time to gear up for the back-to-school season. Along with shopping for new school supplies, uniforms,/new clothes, and backpacks, it’s essential to prepare your home for a fresh start. 


A clean and organized living space can significantly impact your family’s productivity and well-being throughout the school year. At Maid For You, we understand the importance of a clean home.  We also understand the importance of being organized and prepared which is why we are excited to announce, once again, our partnership with Staples of Warrington, back-to-school campaign.  


Your donation of  $5.00 plus tax will provide a box of school essentials to a child in need in Bucks County. Together, let’s embrace the back-to-school season with a clean home and a compassionate spirit!  In 2021 we collected enough to donate 34 boxes to children in need in the Bucks County area.  This year our goal is to collect enough for 100 boxes. You can donate here.


As we prep for the school year and organization, let’s talk about how we can do that in the home. 


First, Let’s Tackle Study Spaces:


Creating an optimal study environment is crucial for academic success. Begin by decluttering the study area and organizing books, stationery, and school materials. Sort through old papers and textbooks, and donate or recycle what is no longer needed. Dust and wipe down desks, shelves, and electronics to create a fresh and inviting workspace. Be cautious of using wet spray products on electronic surfaces. Many electronic items should use a dry microfiber cloth  for wiping fingerprints, dust and grime off. 


Next, Revamp Common Areas:


Common areas such as the living room and kitchen are high-traffic zones where the family gathers daily. Before the school year starts, give these spaces a thorough cleaning. Vacuum and steam clean carpets and upholstery.  We recommend OxyMagic of Chalfont for all your carpet cleaning needs.  Also,  wipe down kitchen countertops and appliances, and clean out the refrigerator to make space for healthy snacks and lunches.


Say Goodbye to Clutter:


A clutter-free environment can work wonders for productivity and mental clarity. An overwhelmed and confused mind does nothing! Encourage family members to go through their belongings and set aside items they no longer use or need. Donate gently used clothing, toys, and household items to local charities or shelters, helping others in the community while reducing clutter in your home.


Implement a Cleaning Schedule:


Maintaining a clean home during the busy school year requires a well-thought-out cleaning schedule. Create a family cleaning calendar that divides tasks among family members based on age-appropriate responsibilities. This distributes the workload and also teaches children valuable life skills. This can take as little as 5 to 10 minutes daily. 


Foster Healthy Cleaning Habits:


Teach children the importance of cleanliness and hygiene. Encourage them to wash their hands regularly, keep their rooms tidy, and clean up after themselves. By instilling healthy cleaning habits early on, you’re setting the foundation for a clean and organized home all year round.  You can read about this in my new children’s book to be released this fall, Anthony’s Way, I AM ME!  Anthony Makes His Bed!

Make Use of Storage Solutions:


Invest in practical storage solutions to keep school essentials organized. Use labeled bins, folders, and shelves to categorize school supplies, artwork, and important documents. A designated “school zone” will help everyone find what they need quickly, reducing morning chaos. Try cute chalk labels like these.
