  • I am exactly the same. I get all the dishes and cups that may be in other rooms and clean the dishes, sink, counters and fridge. Then I sweep the floor and go to the living room to the dining room. Then the bathroom and bedrooms and lastly hallway. THEN I mop all the floors. Same routine everyday. I agree with you I cant start my day with a dirty kitchen!

  • At the beginning of the month, I start with my room. At the end of them month, I start on the opposite side of the house. This keeps mostly everything balanced. I use the FlyLady program and try to stick to a routine, as well.

  • I usually start where the mood strikes which is usually unburying the island in my kitchen. It seems to be the catchall.

  • making the beds. Its a great way to get me started, I like to have all the dishes and stuff done at night because I agree I hate starting the day with a dirty kitchen, if I dont get it done at night I will clean the kitchen right after beds, or I will empty the dishwasher if I started it the night before.

  • shiii.... daily my arse lol

    I do the kitchen and bathroom and if really needed I'll do some vacuuming as needed, but our house doesn't need daily care. Every few days is fine or on an "as needed" basis.

  • I start with straightening the bedrooms and changing sheets if they need it. I follow that up with breakfast dishes before heading out the door for work.

  • I'm more of a clean as you go kind of person. Meaning, I might pick something up and take it to its rightful place, realize there's something there that needs thrown away, take it to the kitchen, realize I haven't unloaded the dishwasher, which leads to.... Get the idea? I don't clean room by room but by the end of the morning the house is back in proper order.

  • Well, I make the bed right after getting up, so technically I guess you could say that's first, but I don't really consider that to be cleaning. The first room I actually clean would be the kitchen, because the first thing I do every morning is make breakfast & pack lunch for DS, which makes a bit of a mess and I need to clean that up before getting to the rest of the house.

  • Laundry is usually my first attack of business at the start of the day. Kitchen is next.
    I dread cleaning the kitchen, especially since we don't have a dishwasher. Unless you consider me one. Ha!
