The Chart

A few have asked for the method to my cleaning madness. Here it is. You may notice that 'sweep kitchen floor' is on my bi-weekly schedule (although it's actually done as needed). This is the beauty of having your own cleaning schedule. You get to be the one to decide if something is done daily, yearly or sometime in between. It's your choice.

You may also notice my poor practical chart is bound together with a lone key ring I found in our desk drawer. This was in despiration to get going with the whole cleaning schedule thing before I wimped out of it. So here it is in all it's glory. I hope you like.

Remember, your things to clean and pick up or organize will be different from mine. So take a few minutes out of your day if you haven't already and think what might be on your list to keep your home clean. Then break the tasks up over a period of time. That simple.

Some say cleaning house is a waste of life but I say a dirty home and frazzled homemaker is a waste of life.

This is one of my goals this year too. I think I'm going to try this. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for posting Marleen! I need all the help I can get in this area. I've tried lots of charts, but this looks like a good one! It reminds me of a system from a book I read "Confessions of a Side-Tracked Home Executive."

This is off the subject but will you remind me of what your camera is? Is is easy to use? I love mine but I really love how good your pictures look. I need to read up more on mine! Do you have to do much to yours to get great pictures?

Wow! You are really on top of your cleaning. I just wait until the ring starts to form in the toilet bowl and then clean it. :)
