How do you keep on top of things?

In your house, what do you do to keep things neat and tidy? Do you have lists? Do you fly by the seat of your pants? Do you have a set schedule? Or do you just do it as you see fit?

  • List and a schedule helps me stay on task.

  • There are some days I absolutely have to get certain things done so I make a list and feel good when eveything is crossed off. Other days I just do whatever I see needs to be done. I like the kitchen picked up every night. I feel better in the morning if it is. Laundry gets done in small loads every other day or so.

  • I do what needs to be done at the time. That includes more than it sounds. Deep cleaning a couple of times a year. I use to be a neat freak and then let it go, life is too short to be cleaning all the time IMHO
