Simple Homemaking Plan Week 36 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! 

Dusting the blinds took about an hour.  I put socks on both hands, put The Sting soundtrack in the CD player, and got busy!  Much better than the month it took me to deep clean them this winter. I completely forgot about the exterior doors and will get to those this week as I continue working my way downward in the

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

  • Clean windows of all “kid evidence”  LOL
  • Wipe down all light switch plates
  • Continue working my way through the kids’ toys – I’m down to the little “junk” – tempting to just junk it all!
  • 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?
