was one of those nights where I was able to get it all done and I went to bed with a clean house I put my kids to bed and I got move in ice tackled my to-do list so I want you to put me on your TV put me on your tablet let’s do this together let’s get our houses clean we can do this [Music] let me know you wanted to [Music] we [Music] I’ve talked about this before that I strive to get my house cleaned up every single night that would be ideal in a perfect world I would go to bed my house would be perfectly clean but it’s not a perfect world and I’m not perfect so it doesn’t always happen this is what real life is like but tonight it was one of those nights where I had the energy I was feeling good feeling motivated my house was pretty messy so I was ready to clean everything up so I started out in the main level in the kitchen and then I went on into the living room and I just started out by turning on the fireplace so I could kind of set a cozy atmosphere and mood lit some candles wrote out my to-do list turned on the Christmas tree blasted some Christmas music and got moving I started out by decluttering and putting things away in the kitchen and I’m kind of showing you my nighttime cleaning routine now of course all of this doesn’t happen every single night when I clean I would be completely lying to you if I said that I did all of this it doesn’t happen all all of the time but at least in the kitchen what you’re gonna see me do in the kitchen if I have time to clean this is what I like to do every night in the kitchen it’s kind of my kitchen cleaning routine now I’m gonna be cleaning a lot of the upstairs and most of the time I don’t do that but tonight again I was able to stay up late I had the energy I was motivated so I did a lot of cleaning tonight but normally I’ll just kind of wipe everything down declutter put things away make sure the dishes are done load the dishwasher put things away in the bathrooms just those basics and of course there’s some nights for nothing gets done but tonight I was able to get a lot done [Music] you to know I’m also going to be sharing a cleaning tip a cleaning hack with you it’s one of those hex that will help keep your house smelling fresh and all night long and then when you wake up in the morning so make sure you stick around for that hey big girl you’re gonna be crawling hey big girl hey big girl Edison you’re silly [Music] if you were just stumbling across my channel thank you so much for checking this video out I am Jamie I’m just a mom of three girls that’s pretty much my life right now I have a four year old and then twin girls who are eight months old I’m very passionate about a clean and organized home as well as just trying to stick to my routines and keep afloat while raising up my

the comment section if you’re not new you know I love it when you say hi to me so say hi either way down below let me know how you’re doing this holiday season [Music] keep it do you think something I’m super curious about is when Mike and I got married and then more so when we had Avery you know we have ultimately two families two family traditions merging as one so something that we’re kind of divided on when it comes to Christmas is how many presents to your kids gettin who are they from so I’m gonna be kind of cryptic here because I don’t want I don’t know who’s listening and I don’t want to give anything away if you know what I mean so this is what I’m gonna ask you specifically when you give presents to your kids on Christmas morning who do they come from do they come from you do they come from you know who growing up in my family we had three presents from you-know-who and the rest were from mom and dad for my husband all of the presents were from you-know-who so I’m just curious how you guys do things how you divide them Mike and I still really haven’t decided so let me know we’re trying to figure this one out [Music] it’s something else I’m curious about we are in the thick of watching Christmas movies around here in our household what are some of your or I guess what is your favorite Christmas movie let me know down below because we’re trying to find some really good Christmas movies to watch with Avery so let me know some of your favorite family Christmas movies [Music] [Applause] [Music] and [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] if you want to see more cleaning videos from me maybe some older ones some different types of cleaning and organization and bit cluttering videos I’m gonna put a cleaning playlist right here also I will have it linked down below at some of my latest and greatest cleaning videos that you can check out and I don’t know if you guys know this but it’s really cool because you can save a playlist to your YouTube account so you could save my playlist so whenever you’re cleaning if you need some Jamie motivation just put me on your TV put me on your phone and we can clean together it’s really cool so again I will have that linked down below the slow heartbeat [Music] I have been loving this vinegar gel for my sink specifically I get it from Grove collaborative it’s the mrs. Meyers brand and I also love the baking soda cream cleanser that looks just like this but I’ve been using this gel cleaner a lot and I’ll have the link of where I get it from Grove and it’s just if you’re not familiar with Grove collaborative it just you can order cleaning products online and it gets shipped to you but I really like this stuff because after I deep clean and really scrub out my sink I use it and kind of buff up my sink and it makes it shiny you know the vinegar is an added cleaning powder power and it just it makes my sink look really shiny and extra clean [Music] Oh hot be make sure to stick around for the nighttime cleaning hack that will help keep your house smelling fresh even while you sleep and I’m also going to be sharing some cute baby clips of the girls in here before they went to bed who doesn’t love seeing a cuddly baby before they go to bed [Music] [Music] [Music] I just wanted to pop in the powder room / bathroom off of our kitchen and just do a quick wipe down with some Lysol wipes and I don’t know if you saw the hand soap that was sitting on the sink but it’s the new mrs. Myers hand soap in snowdrop so I typically get my mrs. Myers and Method products from Grove collaborative so they just come shipped to me and it’s easy but I haven’t been able to find the snowdrop on their website so I don’t know if it’s there now but I haven’t been able to find it previously but you can get it from Target so that’s where I purchased it and it smells amazing so if you want to try a new scent out go check that out I will have it linked from Target below so here are my girls they wanted to say good night to you I took these clips right before I started cleaning and they always get so sweet before bed it’s like around 7 o’clock I’m like ready for them to go down to bed but then when I lay them down they look so sweet and they smile up at me and it’s hard for me to put them down am I the only one that’s like this [Music]

guys tag me on Instagram so come over and say hi [Music] [Music] you gotta know I care I just try not to show before I headed upstairs I wanted to prep my coffeemaker for the next morning so I can literally press the button when I’m super tired so I just added some coffee and water in there and I also wanted to make some of my natural calm which is just a magnesium supplement so I just add it to a hot water and I make it every single night so I just finished up the downstairs a portion I’m sitting here finishing my natural calm Mike is in the kitchen if you guys hear anything but I’m just kind of relaxing before I head upstairs and finish up for the night there’s something so peaceful about cleaning at night it’s just quiet I can’t hear anything I don’t feel like I’m in a rush necessarily I mean I want to get to bed but I don’t feel like I’m in a rush at all because I’m not trying to meet a deadline before a baby wakes up or before we have to go somewhere so yeah I’m gonna go ahead and finish upstairs just kind of relaxing sitting by the fire just enjoying the Christmas lights and all of the decorations sometimes especially around this time of the year I just like to sit in the silence and listen to and just take in all of the Christmas decorations it’s kind of calming but I’m gonna go I’m gonna finish and that way I’ll have a clean home I was pretty surprised that after I sat down for a little bit I was able to get back up and keep moving and I was feeling really good tonight so I want you guys to know that there’s gonna be some nights where you’re gonna be dragging and you’re gonna get nothing done and then there’s gonna be nights where you’re feeling it you’re motivated and this was one of those nights for me so just know we all have all of the kind of nights around here so I just kept going and I wanted to vacuum the stairs I just love when our stairs are really fluffy and I don’t know if that sounds weird but you can kind of see the vacuum lines in there and it just makes the carpet on the stairs really fluffy so super weird I know but I wanted to do that I also wanted to dust the banister which is something that I probably don’t do as often as I should but I wanted to make for sure I did that tonight [Music] hi [Music] Oh [Music] then I got started in the upstairs on our master bedroom and I wanted to clean the master bedroom master bathroom the girls bathroom and clean up the hallway and I also had laundry to fold two loads [Music] time away from you I didn’t think I’d make it without you by my side let me feel love again just the two of us and we could stay up all night with Christmas here in a couple of weeks do you have your shopping done most of my shopping is pretty much done I guess we have some gift cards we need to get and the little stocking stuffers you know like the little stuff but I want to know from you if your Christmas shopping is done I’m one of those people that likes to get their Christmas shopping done pretty early I’m not it’s not like I’m one of those people that gets it done like in October or anything but I do like to get it done I do most of my shopping online and I do a lot of it on Black Friday so I will spend most of the day on Black Friday getting deals and do a lot of my shopping and I just like to take advantage of the good deals and shopping from my couch so that’s what I do a lot of my shopping and then about early December I like to start finalizing everything and getting the gift cards and all that little stuff so it can be done and I can enjoy the season as much as I can but let me know how you’re doing with shopping if you’re all done and if you have more to do [Music] what I do I wanna be wanna be with what I feel is wanna be with what I wanna let me be the star [Music] [Music] so I’m sure you saw my cleaning to-do list that I made and I want to be honest with you I was not able to finish that list most of the time if you’re watching my videos and I make a to-do list for the day for the most part I will accomplish it because I think I’m really good with being realistic about my to-do list and I know what I’m able to accomplish I don’t put a ton of things and then I’m disappointed when I can’t finish it so most of the time I am able to accomplish my cleaning to-do list but tonight was one of those nights I wasn’t I didn’t get to the basement but that’s okay the basement was a last on my list and even though I didn’t finish it I was still happy with what I was able to accomplish [Music] Nazi pizza now safest [Music] sometimes when reason about us annoy it got me it’s so is back we would carry doing [Music] this time we not safe and sound now safe as I [Music] what if [Music] [Music] you don’t even want to know what’s in that other room that’s our extra room that we’re not using as in it’s not a bedroom and it’s kind of become a catch-all room for everything like the things where I’m like I don’t really know where to put this or it’s temporary I’m gonna put it in the room to be honest it personally drives me crazy to have a cluttered room but a majority of the stuff in there is baby things so there are things that we will be using soon and it’s not like they’re just in there for years and years and years and so I just kind of have it all in there and so my goal is maybe in February or March when most of that stuff has come out a lot of its baby toys that the twins aren’t into yet I’m going to be bringing all that stuff out I want to go in there and win a declutter redo that room maybe decorate it so stay tuned for that but right now it is a mess [Music] [Music] the last thing I had to do was fold another load of laundry so I’m just gonna go ahead and do that before I get to the cleaning hack so make sure you stick around for that but yeah there’s always laundry to be done these days so now time for the cleaning hack at night I like to have my house smelling nice and fresh and even if I can’t clean up at night I want to wake up to a fresh smelling house so do you ever have a garbage can that smells not the greatest because you had some old food in there or something spilled after I take out the garbage out in the garage I dump some baking soda in the bottom of the trash can and then a few drops of my favorite essential oil this is a lemon essential oil so it’s nice a fresh kitchen scent and then I’ll even drop some more drops into the fresh garbage bag for some added scent the essential oils and the baking soda work together and leave my house smelling fresh and the essential oils have an antibacterial properties so everything smells good and it helps clean [Music]
