How do you do it?
I've come to realize that I'm not satisfied with my cleaning efforts...or lack thereof.
I'm gonna come "clean" and say that I never really learned how to keep a clean house. My mother hired a sweet lady to come and clean the house once a week and just did light housekeeping the rest of the time. So I never really learned how to deep clean and how to maintain on my own.
I look around our humble home and realize that I'm really not comfortable with the state of things. I wrote out a weekly rhythm:
Wednesday: Dust and Vacuum
Thursday: Grocery Shopping
Friday: Scrub floors
(The kitchen is daily maintenance and I always get the laundry done since we use cloth diapers.)
The above are my problem areas, hence they received a particular day. It's like they sneak up on you. I never notice how dirty something is until it's really dirty. I have a bad habit of putting things off till it gets that way. So my question to you is, How do you do it?
