    I did that for a while and eventually it just irritated the shit out of me that I'd clean and when I'd come back it would look like I'd never been there in the first place. No upkeep whatsoever. Otherwise I liked it :-)

  • OK, this makes me think I need to start a list. I'm in general very good about keeping the house clean and I randomly clean things like closets and the freezer...I even cleaned the garage 2 weekends ago.

    but I could easily add to the list switch out comforters, and such.

    I do clean a lot more in the winter than the summer since i'm stuck inside.

  • edited August 2013
    I'm OCD too, so here's a few (that you might do on a regular basis?)
    Vacuum the couch(under cushions as well), sweep and mop the garage floor (I'm weird), organize garage storage, clean behind washer and dryer and clean dryer tube, wash down all patio furniture and store for winter, clean widows sills and tops of windows/blinds, clean doorjams and baseboards/light switches. Ugh I could go on . . .

  • @amccul20 You are much better than me.  Once it gets 40 or below outside, I hibernate. There's something about being able to open windows and "air out" the house while cleaning, that makes me crazy productive.  Once the doors and windows can no longer be open, I only do the basic cleaning. Washing baseboards and doors is really my only winter project, but we have so much that it takes me a long time to do.

  • My fall cleaning list is as follows:

    If I don't look at the mess it isn't really there. Sit on the couch and eat pumpkin things instead. Have Alan clean and pretend that my offers to help are genuine.


    Amen sister!!! 

    Although I think I am going to get out of my fall decor this weekend.  DH is not excited about the mess I make in the process of doing it.  I do have a lot of things that I want to get done this weekend, but we'll see how many I actually do.

  • @lilliesandvino - were you a part of a cleaning company?  Or did you do it on your own? 

    My aunt has her own business. It was just me, her, and another lady.

    I would not hire a large company. Too many people in and out and the work isn't the same quality.

    And under area rugs, if you have any! I roll ours up occasionally and vacuum underneath, and there's always a ton of dust and debris. How the heck does that crap get under there?
