How do you set yourself up to get it done on time?

  • The major stuff (Dishes, Laundry, Straightening up, taking trash out etc) I do every day
    Every other day I do laundry and vacuum/sweep my floors
    Then weekly I
    -clean the bathrooms (Sink, Toilet & Tub)
    -Mop all floors
    -Wash sheets, curtains,
    Clean out my fridge/freezer
    -Dust .. stuff like that

    and Then Monthly I will do the deep cleaning where I clean everything.. windows, walls, disinfect everything with bleach (I wipe them down every day of course but I actually deep disinfect monthly) including toys things like that...

    Thats a basic list but what I do every day is when I wake up after I get breakfast cooked I will sit down and write down everything I need to accomplish that day starting with 1 room first and check everything off as I get done with it. Seems to get done so much quicker that way. I also will only clean for 30 mins, take a small break and then clean more helps me not tire out as fast.

  • Someone referred a poster a few months ago to flylady.net. I went there and was amazed and greatly helped by what I learned, and I always thought I was a good housekeeper. I was/am, but now I'm just more organized and efficient about it. There are plenty of tips and tricks to keep things clean and orderly and ready for a popover visit anytime! Good luck.

  • I just do it every day. If you let things go it becomes a nightmare. So after we eat we take turns who does the dishes (the house usually looks like the kitchen). We scrub tubs/showers weekly. Sinks are wiped down daily.

    Literally most of our house work is done as we go so its a few min here and there. Also the kids are excepted to help clean. They have been able to help since 3. Laundry DH & I wash and dry the boys fold.

    Everything is joint unless one of us are laid off or stay at home parent.

  • I cannot do it every day. I'd never sit down. I do laundry every day and make sure the kitchen is clean before I go to bed.
