This week the challenge over at Mary Organizes is “Home Management”. This week we are to do something that will make our lives easier.
Hmmmmm… I had several ideas but most would take longer than a week to implement.
So I decided to focus on my weekly cleaning schedule. It definitely needed some tweaking.
I do housework 5 days a week but I’ve decided instead of having a weekend break, I will take Sunday and Wednesday off.
The ‘shelf’ column is in regards to my Living Room. I have 4 large bookshelves with lots of mementoes. Dusting them all in one day is a major pain. So I’m going to do one each day.
The chore is to get those things that don’t fall into a normal category. Yes… I have to remind myself to check the plants!
Then I wrote out what I needed to do in each room. A big benefit of having it written out is that you know what you need to delegate to other family members! ~wink~
It really isn’t all that hard because once a routine is established nothing gets out of control. I’ll be done with each day’s cleaning routine in 2 hours or less.
And that I like!
