Simple Homemaking Plan Week 34 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 took a 4 week hiatus from extra homemaking tasks while the kids were home this summer.  I was a much happier Mom to not have a task unchecked for the week and to just do what I could as I found the time.  But the kids started back to school this morning, so it’s time to give my house some much needed attention.  I’m going to start at the top this time and work my way down.

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

  • Dust air vents
  • Dust fan blades 
  • Dust light fixtures
  • 15 minutes daily tidy after the kids go to bed (I tend to do 30 mins one night and none the next, but it still works!)

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 ever seem pressing enough to be done immediately.

What extra things are you working on this week?
