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! 

Boy, I gotta tell you – there are some weeks that if I didn’t have this “to do” list posted I probably wouldn’t get any of these things done.  But then again, that’s exactly why I post this list :-)

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

  • Empty, clean and reorganize 1/3 of my kitchen cabinets (It’s amazing how refreshing it is to NOT have things fall on you when you open the door!)
  • Scrub/deep clean around back of sink and faucet
  • Go through gift closet and choose toys to donate this Christmas
  • Clean oven (left over from 2 weeks ago- it’s been sprayed and I’ll finish it up this afternoon)
  • 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?
