Clean House

I have to admit, I don’t clean our house nearly as often as I should! Generally, I only clean when we are having company or when the house gets so dirty that it grosses me out. I know, it’s embarrassing! So, I have a new strategy that I want to share…it actually works really well.

A few months ago, I typed and saved on my computer a list of everything I need to do to clean my entire house, room by room, from vacuuming, dusting, wiping off the TV, to cleaning out the microwave, cleaning the shower, washing sheets, washing towels, etc. So now, when it’s time to clean, I just print off the document, turn on some music, and check things off as I go! It’s nice to get everything done at once. I try to do my little routine once a week and I’ve got it down to about 2-3 hours. If anyone is interested in my list, send me an e-mail and I will send you the document.

It’s amazing how much better I feel when the house is clean. I think it’s actually calming. Now, if I can only figure out a way to stay organized…

Hello, Nealy! I didn't realize you had a blog until I stopped by Erica's blog yesterday. Welcome to the world of blogging! :)

I enjoyed reading this post! It's encouraging to know that I'm not the only one who lets their house gets messy! Like you, I LOVE a clean house, but with little ones running around, it's absolutely impossible to keep clean!!! I find myself getting really stressed about it, probably more than I should. I would LOVE a copy of your list! It sounds like a great idea and might help me do a better job with keeping my house clean.
