  • I try(and I do mean try) to get everything done at night. But when I don't , I usually start upstairs and work my way down. I try to wash clothes while I am doing the living room or mopping. If I am to tired I load the dish washer at night and start it the morning. I dust twice a week.

  • I do laundry Thurs., Fri., Sat., and Sun. I clean on Thursdays including vacuuming. On Friday I food shop. Mon to Wed. I do little things. Wipe down kitchen chairs. vacuum couches. Laundry is my kids clothes, our clothes, sheets, towels, my husband's uniforms and bed comforters when needed. dusting and cleaning the whole house is on Thursdays. I stay home so I have the time.
