  • I should do it that way. Unfortunately, when I start something it's all or nothing. I will actually stay up all night to clean if I get the urge to start cleaning later at night. I have to really distract myself from that.

  • I try to focus on 1 room a day but I usually end up destroying 3 rooms to clean 1.

  • I do a thurough cleaning once a month of our boys room. They pick up but don't do the deep cleaning. I did that yesterday. With dogs, and boys, I have to clean our main rooms(kitchen floors, living room, dining room floors) everyday. The dogs don't go in the bedrooms so they aren't as bad....

  • Usually I'll do all the picking up one day, and then the windows, vaccuming and deep cleaning the next day.

  • i clean the living room, kitchen and do laundry daily. we're a family of 5 so if i even let those things go 1 day without attention the house looks dispicable. the bathrooms and bedrooms are a bigger task and i try to separate them in one day. like ill do our bath and bedroom in one day and the kids' bathroom and bedrooms the next, or both bathrooms in one day and all bedrooms the next. it usually is a weekly process though, i just dont have the time/energy. lol

  • Usually, I have a bunch of regular tasks in different rooms, but sometimes I focus on one room (right now, it's the office. I'd been ignoring it for so long, it got REALLY out of control.)

  • It depends on how I feel. Sometimes I am too tired and think of all I have to do then I will choose one room and clean it. If I am energetic I will go through the whole house. I like when I can do the whole house but if I can't I'm not going to get too upset over it.

  • It all depends. Sometimes I"ll say ok I'm cleaning the bathroom and kitchen and that's it but I end up doing more.

  • Are you kidding? As an adult with ADD, I have always tried to concentrate on one room at a time but always wind up in other rooms. I start cleaning something in the bathroom, realize something I need is in the kitchen, next thing I realize I'm cleaning the kitchen sink and floor and never returned to cleaning what I started to in the bathroom. ;)
