Keeping the house, yard and garage all clean and tidy and organized...
Ha ha ha ha ha! :0)
Here is how we do it at our house...
Each day of the week we have areas of the home that are our focus for the day. That area is to be cleaned and all the clutter piles cleared up. If reorganization or changes need to be made, we do it on that day.
Mondays - Kitchen, Living Room, Sitting Room & the dog's things
Tuesdays - Laundry Room, Children's Bedroom
Wednesdays - Playroom, Pantry, Supply Closet (this is the catch all that has everything from board games to storage boxes)
Thursdays - Master Bedroom, All Floors
Fridays - Bathrooms
Saturdays - Garage, Vehicles, Yard and Schoolroom
This is very helpful in keeping us focused. I am one that has a tendency to want to randomly clean out areas of clutter. This actually makes more messes for me as I interject extra work into my days. Ultimately and truthfully, it causes a lack of focus and incomplete projects. My sweet husband calls it a sickness. Hehe... :0)
In all seriousness, I so desire to be a good steward of our home and to teach our children to be good stewards, to be organized and to be able to follow through with things.
Saturday was a wonderful day of laboring together as a family. The grass was mowed, the weeds cleared from the front flower beds, about 1/4 of the garage was tidied up, both vehicles were completely cleared out and cleaned! Yippee! This Saturday we can tidy another 1/4 of the garage and see about getting rid of those Clutter Monsters that have creeped into our little schoolroom.
