Homemaking Plan Week 8 of 2012

This post may contain affiliate links.

As I sit down to write the menu for the week, I’m writing out my 4
weekly “to do” lists (personal tasks, blogging tasks, cleaning chores,
less common maintenance cleaning tasks).  It’s helping me to accomplish
things that easily get pushed aside otherwise,
even if I don’t get them all checked off!

I have always been a clean as needed kind of person.  We had a small dinner party Friday night and I loved having everything cleaned at once.  I mentioned that on FB and while several of you agreed, Kristan said that she has a specific chore for each day of the week.  I’ve also read about people who have one cleaning day a week, or one a month.  I may play with some ideas for a cleaning schedule and let you know how it turns out. In the meantime, I’ve put up a poll (top right sidebar)just for fun to see how you guys clean.

This week’s maintenance chores in addition to daily functioning cleaning chores.

  1. Clean inside and outside of fridge.
  2. Clean door frames, window frames and light plates in bedrooms and bathrooms. 
  3. Put 2 or 3 more items on Craigslist or Ebay to sell (I’m really trying to clear “stuff” and put the money on the mortgage without denting our savings)
  4. 15 minutes daily tidy after the kids go to bed (I’ve started slacking here again- I need a lock timer for my computer LOL)

See?  Nothing too involved, just things that will help me stay on
top of things at home instead of letting the week slip away from me
because none of those things seem pressing to be done immediately.
