You have been asking me for a simple way to embrace all that I have to teach in The Salon. You have said that you want to start incorporating my routines and rituals but that you don’t know where to start. You have said that you feel a little overwhelmed and would like me to hold your hand a little tighter as we set off along the road to a life less ordinary together.
And I heard you. I heard that you need more direction and that you would like me to be a little more specific about what to do when. And how to do it. I heard that you would find the route to an authentic, clean, blissful house easier if I showed you to to create it step-by-step and if I pulled together all the resources in The Salon together into one easy plan. I heard you because despite being ever so slightly around the bend myself, I promise you I am always listening.
And so I sat among all that I have created and I puddled my head about what mattered most and how I could make this easy for you and it struck me that in an effort to share the rhythm sacred to the BrocanteHome way of life, Housekeeping 365 is still the gate we all need to routine and ritual.
So I got to work. And in The Salon today you will find a newly updated version of Housekeeping 365 in your library. A version that is accompanied by clear week-by-week directions for making the most of of all the resources included in your subscription and one that gently nudges you to set in place all that will help you along the way. without ever overwhelming you.
This is everything I know about keeping house in a daily checklist. Recurring tasks that will turn up daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annually as and when they are necessary, accompanied by the daily five essentials and of course a teeny puttery treat because a house isn’t a home without the little somethings that make it uniquely yours.
Each week you will find a seven day checklist, alongside some thoughts on keeping house and a list of little to-do’s to help you put your Life Less Ordinary Planner together, start living gently guided by the BrocanteHome Manifesto and of course to incorporate the non-toxic housekeeping at its heart.
This then is Brocantehome consolidated. It is the way to make 2020 your domestic best and as calm and order are slowly restored by commitment to routine, so too is time created to truly look at who you are now and who you want to be in all of your tomorrows.
Life isn’t perfect. It is muddly and messy and stressful and chaotic. But your house doesn’t have to be and with my help, together we can create a home that feels like a hug.
Be kind to yourself, won’t you?
