|Someone's gotta do the cleaning around here!|
But personally, I kind of like them. A new week, an unspoiled beginning.
Well, except for those last few dishes lingering the the sink. But we'll get to those in a minute.
This weekend, I spent some time drafting some pre-made to-do lists, mainly focusing on chores that need to be done daily. While I was at it, I revamped my cleaning schedule to make it (hopefully!) more efficient and all-encompassing.
Because last week, I cleaned my microwave for the first time in....a loooooong time. It was bad. Let's just leave it at that.
But more about master cleaning schedules later this week (with a giveaway!).
For my daily chores, I used this awesome customizable daily "To-Do" sheet from Money Saving Mom.
My personal list looks something like this:
- Breakfast Prep
- Minimum Maintenance--Kitchen (15-20 minutes)
- Min. Maint.--Bathroom (5 minutes)
- Min. Maint.--Bedroom (5 min.)
- Min. Maint.--Squishy's Room (5 min.)
- Min. Maint.--Living Room (5 min.--approximately 40 minutes of cleaning total)
- 5-10 Minute Kitchen Clean Up
- Sweep House
- Water Plants
- Dinner Prep
- Kitchen Clean Up
- Breakfast Prep
- 5 Minute Pick Up
While we're on the subject, I've been loving minimum maintenance lately. Five minutes can do a lot of good:
Try it! Set a timer and you're off!
Linked to Make It Happen Monday over at Ammie's place! This girl gets some serious stuff done on Mondays.
P.S. I totally forgot that this Monday is a holiday. So perhaps you're not bemoaning it after all. ;)
P.S. Again: Just wanted to say thank you for all the awesome interaction in the comments lately. Such fun...I enjoy getting to know you all more and hearing your take on different subjects. :)
