to do list

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 was another successful week using the new “to do” list app on my phone.  I didn’t get quite as much done though, since the house was in pretty good order.  We’re moving on to the kitchen this week and will spend a few weeks focusing there.

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

  • Put all clutter from the countertops into a box
  • Remove everything else from the countertops and clean/disinfect/bleach (sadly ours are white and need bleaching from stains)
  • Sort countertop clutter box while watching TV and put items away during commercials
  • Clean out/organize the fridge to make room for Thanksgiving feast foods.  If you’re also doing your freezer I’d suggest wearing a pair of gloves – they always help me keep going.
  • 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?
