New Homekeeping Schedule

We had a few changes this past week, so I'm changing my previous Homekeeping Schedule.  I'm so excited that my Mondays are now freed up!  Not only does it help with time for homeschool but it allows me to move my cleaning day back to Mondays and not have Tuesday so full.

Monday - 3 hour cleaning marathon; ALL laundry
Tuesday - dishes, wipe counters
Wednesday - dishes, wipe counters
Thursday - dishes, wipe counters
Friday - dishes, wipe counters

Doing my cleaning on one day for a few months now has been so rewarding!  I have so much time to do extra crafts/projects for homeschool and just for life in general.  

I'm planning on doing my fall deep cleaning the week of Thanksgiving, since we are taking school off that week.  I really need to clean behind the stove/fridge before the bugs come in from the cold.  I'm going to make a plan for those 3 days before Thanksgiving (Mon-Wed) so I make sure I don't forget anything because from Thanksgiving till Christmas break its going to be super busy around here with crafts!  Am I the only one who loves doing Christmas crafts everyday in December!?!

I am a huge marathon cleaner. That is really the only way I clean and it is the only way I found successful for me. Monday use to be mine.

At the beginning of the school year I had divided my rooms by the days and I really don't like that. I just felt like I schooled all day then cleaned all day, cooked supper and then did evening things. I was exhausted.

So, over the last few weeks I went back to my tried and true one day cleaning.

Same here, I've tried it over several days and feels like all I do is clean lol. I love getting it done in one night! ;-)

Hum... I think I will have to try the marathon cleaning method myself since the two little ones keep me busy all day and all night. Adding all that busyness of childcare and then cleaning and meals, it's an exhausting day! Thank you for that idea Bev!

Once you start the one day a week cleaning marathon, you will be hooked at least I was! ;-) I don't want to clean everyday of my life lol - dishes and counters are inevitable but doing cleaning everyday is exhausting to me so the 3 hour once a week is awesome!
