My house isn't on the market, but.....

Its always "show" ready. That is actually my cleaning plan lol.  I keep my home clean as if it was on the market. If there is anything I would do before walking out the door to show my home for sale, I make sure I do it right then! 

 At first it felt like a lot of working, cleaning bathrooms daily, weekly wiping of all pictures, mirrors, blinds and light fixtures, never having any clutter on counters or kids rooms. I always make sure any little projects that need to be done are done right away. .

 At first I felt like I was doing random lose ends that got left, like the craft table mess or kids closets but once I got everything caught up its not hard..

 Now my house is always spotless and I don't clean more than 2 hours a day here and there. Including daily stuff like dishes and sweeping.

Do you work?  I could never spend two hours a day just cleaning.

My home used to be like that years ago now I just live in it.

Good for you! Me, if I had two hours a day that I didn't need to put into anything else, I would not spend them cleaning.

I wish I could do that, but with a DH that likes to make little piles of messes on nearly every surface, that's not possible.  I remember back when I was a single Mom, my place was show ready all the time.  SIGH!

I actually think this is a brilliant plan. If I could only get the motivation to get it done. Come help me?

I try to keep my home very clean but, my husband & I work a lot & we never have two hours a day to spare. We do our best with what time we have though.
