Simple Homemaking Plan Week 29 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!    

Last week went much better. It was actually my shortest week at home without hubby :-)  I managed to have the house well picked up and cleaned by the time he got home Saturday afternoon.  Unfortunately that meant I had added a few piles to my office that I had to address yesterday afternoon. 😀  For the first time in 6 weeks I actually completed my list and went beyond! My personal to do list was nearly completed as well. I’m hoping to build on my progress this week.

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

  • complete all tasks from previous homemaking plans that haven’t been completed yet (I’m embarrassed to admit how many, so I won’t!) 
  • Dust fan blades and light fixtures
  • 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.
