Getting Organized…

As I mentioned in my “New Years’ Resolution” post – I am really bad about leaving all of the weekly cleaning / housework until Saturday. I finally sat down and made a list of the things I want to get done each evening. In theory, if I follow the chart I should only have to spend a short amount of time each night getting my house in order (instead of HOURS & HOURS on Saturday). Yes, some may call this a little bit OCD (i’ll be the first to admit it… hah), but lists are kinda my thing. I love the satisfaction of crossing things off as I finish them. Post-its are my friend…

Here’s my List.


  • Start Laundry Loads- (also CHANGE TOWELS & SHEETS Today)


  • Finish Laundry (Fold / Iron / Hang Up & Put Away)
  • I strategically picked the night where there are lots of good TV shows 😉


  • Dust & Vacuum — Quick & easy job for B-Study Night


  • Light – Clean Bathrooms
  • Wipe down counter / Windex Mirrors / Empty Garbage Bins


  • Laundry (Mike usually umpires so I have down time)


  • Dust, Vacuum, & Sweep (Living Room, Kitchen, & Foyer)


  • Mop Kitchen & Foyer
  • Vacuum UPSTAIRS
  • Deep Clean Bathrooms (Mop Floors / Shower / Toilets / Counters / Mirrors)

1st & 3rd Saturday of the Month:

  • Wash Cars & Dogs

1st & 3rd Sunday of the Month:

  • Clean Out Fridge

Oh, how glorious it will be to one day delegate some of these chores to our future children! haha
