So, I have a basic weekly plan that I use to try to keep up with housework around here. I really liked Flylady stuff for a long time, but then one week on the same room just didn’t work for me. If I missed a week, the room didn’t get done for a whole month, so now I do all the rooms on a weekly basis for 15-20 minutes. If I do it as planned then it works great. Each week I can delve into the room a bit deeper if I want and if I actually do a room 2 or 3 or 4 times in a row then I get to go way beyond just a quick clean up. For example, the laundry room. If I do the laundry room for the first time in a few weeks then the whole 20 minutes is basically just decluttering and picking up really well. But, then next week I can declutter and pick up for a few minutes and then wipe down all the counter tops really well, maybe even do the floors and fronts of cabinets. KWIM?
Here is my basic weekly plan
- Monday: Run around town day, bank, library, groceries, Monday Class. Run in the afternoon
- Tuesday: Bathrooms. Yoga in the morning.
- Wednesday: Bedrooms – I do my room really good and then make sure the kids is done really well. If I don’t go up and physically check, then they don’t get done really well at all. I find it to be a pain in the arse to always have to check on their work, but if I don’t (and sometimes I don’t) then it’s half-assed done. I hate half-assed done, but it’s better than not done at all! 🙂 Run in the afternoon.
- Thursday: Pantry (we have a big walk in pantry that needs to be gone through each week – I do it about once a month, but it needs to be done more often). Yoga in the morning.
- Friday: Laundry Room Run in the afternoon.
- Saturday: Sweep, mop and vacuum all floors. Long yoga day, Ashtanga Flow
- Sunday: Fun day with family, try to go through fridge for Monday grocery shopping.
