My maintenance plan is simple. Each day of the week I have assigned a room or area of the house.
Monday - bathrooms
Tuesday - dining room / Living room
Wednesday- mop the floors
Thursday- Kitchen (obviously dishes will be done daily. This day is for clearing clutter off of the counters, cleaning out the fridge etc.)
Saturday - bedrooms / laundry day
Sunday - Rest, family fun day
Now I will be flexible on this to a point. For example if I come home from work on Tuesday and I just am tired and don't feel like doing anything I can double up on Wednesday or if we want to go to the Zoo on Saturday I can do the bedrooms on Friday and Sunday etc..
September is going to be my 30 days to organization so I will be doing a little mini project each day on top of the cleaning.
Ya know how most people have a "junk drawer" in their house? Yeah, well I have hmmm, roughly....five or six.
This month I want to give my "junk drawers" a purpose and a meaning in life.
I would like to organize my garage too but I might save that for another month when it's not so hot. Maybe October would be a better month for this.
