Re: Check my cleaning schedule

  • What about cleaning out the fridge and keeping the pantry organized?  Or is that included in "Clean all surfaces"?  

    I only noticed that b/c that is what I did this morning!

  • I have that in the seasonal category. I noticed that when I asked for peoples to base mine off of this is when most of them did that.
  • I might be blind but I couldn't see anything about laundry besides cleaning bedding.

  • Oops I see you've already commented on the laundry, that will learn me for not reaidng posts properly.

    What I do with laundry is moring and night do "something with the laundry."

    eg. morning put on a load. Evening put load in the dryer. Morning fold yesterdays load.?

  • Do you really clean miniblinds, windows and polish furniture every week.  I'm lucky if I get to this once a month.
  • Hehe FI does all the dusting due to my allergies. I like to keep things clean so they dont get bad
  • Do you work also? ?I have made a New Year's resolution to get clean and organized this year. ?Just looking at the list makes me think that I will never have any time to do anything else. ?I am definitely going to copy your list because it's a great starting point. ?I just want to believe that being clean means I still have some free time!! ?:)


    Good Luck!?

  • The first thing that struck me is you'll need to vaccum after you dust or you'll have dust everywhere. I always plan on sweeping/vaccuming after dusting.
