Since I have been home this summer I have realized, while trying to catch up on my cleaning (that I have missed out on for SEVERAL months), that I need a plan. I sometimes miss only having to worry about the messes that I made...now I have to worry about Ian and Eli's messes and Joe's....and Scott's...and the dog's..... Anyway, I have never before had a "method" to my cleaning, I just did what needed cleaned. But now, I need some help. I am sure that once I get this house clean, it won't take long to get back to where it has been. I desperately need a plan, so I am asking you...how do you do it? Do you clean a room a day? Do you set aside one day for cleaning? Do you have a chore checklist? What chores do you do daily/weekly/monthly?
Ideally within the next month I will have a method to my cleaning. I want to avoid having to do lots of work on the weekend and I am the only one responsible for cleaning the house (I only work part time during the school year and Scott isn't much in to helping out with "women's work" ....I know, I know....I married him knowing this, so can't really change that now!)
Anyway, any thoughts, insights, helpful hints, etc. are appreciated!
