2 weeks to go: Finish cleaning and organizing (Regular Pesach, 2011: April 3 – April 9)
Finish cleaning house except dining room and kitchen (For me, this means family room, living room, entryway, and anything I’ve fallen behind on)
Clean miscellaneous child stuff
- Car seats
- Diaper bags
- High chair (will need to be cleaned again later, obviously, but getting it done now means less work later!)
Clean out purse(s) and reusable shopping bags
Clean and line 1-2 cabinets to store purchased Pesach stuff
Keep running box to donate and schedule time to donate before Pesach, if possible
Open Pesach inventory and review.
Shop for remaining physical items, like wine glasses, haggadot, afikomen presents, etc.
Review pet care needs and begin switching pets to Pesach diet by mixing in a little new food with old–gradually increase new.
Run errands as scheduled (toiveling items)
Get through any laundry back-up (we don’t normally do laundry for the week of Passover, so clear everything you can now.)
