Back to School is a time to get the kids back into a routine. Sleeping and eating habits formed over summer are now a thing of the past. As the kids’ routines shifted over the summer holidays, moms’ routines have shifted as well. We no longer need to keep track of our school aged children throughout the day and we can now dedicate a routine to house cleaning and meal making.

So what is a good morning BACK TO SCHOOL Routine for Moms?

morning back to school routine

GET UP EARLY: getting up before your kids wake up is a great way to start the day. This way you won’t feel rushed and may even be able to get a quick morning coffee or workout in before the hub bub of the day begins.

MAKE YOUR BED: I know this sounds silly and something that we tell our kids to do all the time, but making your bed really can make a difference in how your day runs. If you make your bed every morning, you will start the day being productive!

(If you haven’t prepped the lunches for the day the night before, do them now.)

BREAKFAST & KIDS: Now that you have had a few minutes of quiet to yourself and have already accomplished one task (making the bed!), it is time to get breakfast ready and the kids off to school or ready for the day.

DISHES: If you’re like me, you like having a clean looking kitchen, but at 9pm after the kids are in bed the last thing you want to do is work on dishes. The morning is the perfect time to clear the dishwasher and get rid of those dirty dishes.

After you worked through your morning back to school routine, pour yourself another coffee!

Kids will make crumbs and bring in dirt, so once a week, choose a day where you can deep clean your floors! The Vileda EasyWring Spin Mop and Bucket System will put a whole new spin on mopping and keep your floors in tip-top shape all year long.

The Vileda EasyWring Spin Mop and Bucket System is designed to make your life easier – and we could ALL fall in love with that!

  • A telescopic handle will allow you to adjust the mop height perfect for you and great for those times when you need a little more reach.

  • The microfibre pad is tough on dirt and grime and can be used, washed, and reused over and over again.  Once you feel the pad needs to be replaced, simply swap out the old pad for a new one – simple and easy!

  • The built-in wringer in the bucket is powered by your foot, so you don’t need to get your hands wet and dirty by wringing out the mop.

  • And it’s perfect for hardwood flooring, vinyl flooring, and ceramic flooring, meaning you only need 1 tool for all the hard floored surfaces in your house!

I love using the EasyWring System for my kitchen and dining room area.  With a large area of hardwood flooring, the Vileda EasyWring System allows me to clean up any messes from craft or dinner time that my children may have made easily.

If you want to put a new spin on mopping, Vileda has provided printable Save $5 on EasyWring and Save $2 on refill coupons!

You will also love the Multi-Use Scrunge Scrub Sponge! This multi-purpose scrub sponge is great for deep cleaning those lunch kits and plastic containers your child uses throughout the week. The Multi-Use Scrunge Scrub Sponge rinses clean after use and resists odours so you don’t have a stinky sponge in your sink. I love that the sponge is non-scratch and can be used on Teflon®! You can see all of Vileda’s family of Scrunge sponges on their website,
