Simple Homemaking Plan Week 26 of 2012.

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! 
We took a quick trip to Shreveport at the end of last week – more on that later hopefully.  I had forgotten how difficult it was to stay in hotel rooms with little ones!  The only thing from my list that I got done before we left was the baking/candy cabinet.  Nothing is falling out on me anymore, the candy is all up to date (there were things in there that I know we moved from Arkansas 2 years ago- yuck!), and my husband even noticed how neat the cabinet looked.  The main difference is that I added a small stacking shelf to help with all the tea mixes.  This cabinet is just one of the many things I’ll be making an effort to maintain better.

After – much better!


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

  • reorganize the other food cabinets in the kitchen
  • clean off the top of the fridge (groan)
  • wipe light switches and door frames down 
  • vacuum couches – alas I still haven’t gotten to them :-(
  • 15 minutes daily tidy after the kids go to bed 

See? Nothing too involved, just tasks 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.
