So how are things going?  Are you keeping up?  What issues have you noticed in your schedule?  I stopped at the grocery store on my way home yesterday so I again, took a half hour out of my usual one hour before the boys got home.  On top of that we had a contractor coming out to check out our staircase and give us remodel options.  So I did a quick clean but I was able to mark everything off the list. 


  • Make the bed
  • Manage clutter - whenever you leave a room, take a quick look around for anything that isn't where it should be.  Pick it up and put it where it belongs.  
  • Sort the mail
  • Clean as you cook.  Instead of filling the sink with pots & dishes , wash them or put them in the dishwasher as you prepare a meal.  
  • Wipe up spills while they're fresh.  
  • Sweep the kitchen floor
  • Dust entryway & hallway banisters, furniture, objects and light fixtures
  • Launder entryway & hallway machine-washable throw rugs & runners
  • Vacuum entryway & hallway stairs & landings
  • Wipe entryway & hallway mirrors.
  • Discard magazines & catalogs on coffee or side tables; store or pin those you want to keep
  • Dust living room surfaces and objects, including furniture, light fixtures & electronics
  • Fluff and rotate sofa cushions.
  • Vacuum living room upholstery & floor
  • Wipe hand & pet prints from windows & glass doors
  • Vacuum vents
