Spring has a whole different meaning to baseball moms, right?! Spring for us means daily trips to the ballfields. Spring means eating dinner either insanely early or insanely late at night on the way home from a game. Spring for me means the washing machine is constantly. Spring means living out of our car and keeping essentially ready to grab and go. So today we’re going to get you prepared for your busy spring and summer months ahead with this easy Baseball Mom Spring Cleaning Checklist.
Spring Cleaning Checklist for Baseball Moms
So how is this checklist different than a typical Spring Cleaning checklist? Well, we identified things that you can do now so you’re prepared for the season ahead.
Here’s your Baseball Mom Spring Cleaning Checklist:
- Clean out your car(s). Now is the time to vacuum those suckers out and stock them up with the essentials. Some things I like to keep in my car: extra blanket, umbrella, toilet paper, paper towel, grocery bags (for muddy cleats and clothes), bottles of water, baby wipes, snacks, etc.. I also generally keep my folding chair in there at all times too.
- Check your baseball bags to ensure they are cleaned out from last season and restocked with the essentials.
- Get all your son’s baseball gear cleaned and ready to go–catcher’s gear, hitting gloves, hats, shoes, and of course…those bags. Sort through his bag, clean it out, and get it stocked up with the must haves for game day.
- Organize your garage so that you can grab things quickly and head out…and this is true for all sports, not just baseball. If you know where all your sporting stuff is before the season starts and make specific places for where it should be returned when they get home, then you will be more prepared for children who are in multiple sports.
- Get your wagons ready. If you’re (sadly) anything like me, then you may have some garbage crammed into those corners of the wagon from last season. Pull out your vacuum, clean that sucker out, and get it ready to go to ALL the tournaments later this spring and summer.
- Wash those baseball blankets if you have siblings sitting and playing on game days. Our picnic blanket from last year is certainly covered in grass, mud, and leftover crackers from 5 little girls playing Barbies and eating lollipops at the games.
- Go through your son’s baseball clothing and ensure it all still fits him. Donate anything he’s outgrown and make plans to replace what he needs.
- Still wearing those white pants? Take the time to ensure they are bright white before game day.
- Now is the time to take inventory of your snacks and get stocked up for anything your player might like to have on the go. Head to Costco or Sam’s and get ready for the season ahead.
- Organize your schedule and write down all your games and tournaments. Take the time to arrange for childcare, pet care, or hotels as needed.
- Check to make sure that your folding chairs are still comfortable and in good working order and if not, make arrangements to replace them.
- Clean our your fridge. There’s nothing worse than always being on the go and not being able to see inside your fridge for food that’s easy to access. A clean fridge literally makes me so happy….for the one day it lasts 😉
- While you’re at it, now is a great time to clean out those oversized water bottles and coolers too!
What’s even better? I created a free printable spring cleaning checklist just for you, Baseball Mom! Of course, there’s your regular spring cleaning to do too. So there’s added room on there for regular spring cleaning you may want to get done before you’re at the ballpark all weekend!
