1. Continue monthly meal planning.
2. Continue having a monthly freezer cooking day.
3. Figure out a cleaning schedule that works for me.
Previously, my cleaning schedule consisted of a brief list of weekly chores, such as mopping, cleaning the bathroom, vacuuming, laundry. It was far from comprehensive, and lately I had fallen into a "system" of simply cleaning whatever looked dirtiest first and almost ignoring the bathrooms (and the *ahem* microwave) altogether.
So, I was excited when my blogging friend, Christine (from iDreamOfClean) offered to let me review her new ebook, Creating Your Perfect Cleaning Schedule.
In this ebook, Christine walks you through the why, what, and how of creating a cleaning schedule. One that is appropriate for your house and your current scheduling method in general. My favorite part about this easy read is the master cleaning list that has an all-inclusive list of cleaning tasks, broken down into categories of how frequently they should be performed (what a time-saver)!
Using that master cleaning list, I formed my own schedule, which includes daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and bi-annual cleaning tasks.
Um, yeah. I couldn't have done that without some help! :D I used the blank printable chore sheets from Money Saving Mom for plugging the different chores in, but Christine also includes printables you can use in the ebook.
My sheets are tucked into my Household Binder, which stays open on my kitchen table during the day as a visual reminder. And guess what lovely thing happened yesterday? The oft' neglected bathroom received a nice shining! Today, in addition to my daily chores, my tasks are to change/wash the sheets, vacuum, and do a load of laundry.
