I have tried several methods for organizing my chores, from daily 15 minute clean sessions to one day cleaning extravaganzas, and found none of them work for me. I just decided to let life happen and see where chores fit in and to my surprise it was fairly easy to get everything done each week. Here’s my schedule:
Monday- After little guy is sleeping iron shirts for hubby while we watch our favorite recorded TV shows.
Tuesday- Vacuum and mop all floor and clean bathrooms during nap time. Occasionally I can vacuum while little guy is awake, it just takes 3 times as long.
Friday- Vacuum and mop all floors, dust, and clean kitchen during nap time.
Everyday I try to do 1 load of laundry and fold it after bedtime while hubby is glued to the TV. Monthly I give the glass door and windows a wipe to remove finger and nose prints. The rest of the time is free game to get work done or just relax. It really has helped me to be a more relaxed and enjoyable person to be around knowing that it may not be spotless, but it’s good enough.
