Simple Homemaking Plan Week 12 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’ve had spring fever lately, so I’m mainly focusing on the outside tasks this week.

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

  1. Dust fan blades
  2. Dust and clean the last 1/4 of the blinds and windows
  3. Plant 2 pots of flowers
  4. Mulch front flower bed
  5. Plant starter flower seeds in egg cartons
  6. Plant produce seeds (carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, yellow and red peppers, and watermelons)
  7. 15 minutes daily tidy after the kids go to bed

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.


  1. I cannot get enough of this weather outside either!!!! I’m a little sad it’s going to storm later though…just because that means less outdoor time! But still! Love the weather right now. I’m dreading the heat later though.
