I keep reading about people decluttering, or deep cleaning their house. I want a clean house, too, but w/ a toddler it seems impossible. I have also had morning sickness for 5 months, and it's just now going away (at 22 weeks UGH!). Needless to say, my house is a MESS!!! I read the Flylady website, and a few others. I don't think they will work for me, so I took the ideas I got, and made my own plan. I work at home, and have a toddler, and am PG (and tired :P ). The only commitment I made was to do *something* everyday! I am starting w/ my kitchen, the room that bothers me the most. It is very small, so I have to organize, and downsize quite a bit. My goal is to be done by Sunday! Here is my list of things to do:
Clean cabinet fronts
Clean out top, bottom, and oak cabinets
Clean ref., stove, and dishwasher (including underneath, behind, on top, ect.!)
Wash food splatters off all walls
Clean floor by hand
Vaccuum all crevices, and inside vents
Wash windows, and window coverings
Polish all oak surfaces
I started on Sunday, and here is a list of what I have accomplished every day so far:
Sunday: Cleaned most of stove (everything except the drawer and beneath)
Monday: Finished stove, and did cabinet fronts
Tuesday: Dishwasher, and outside, under, and shelves of fridge (had a spill, so had to do even MORE, rewash fronts of some cabinets, fridge, and dishwasher
Wednesday: The inside door of fridge, and part of freezer
Thursday: All upper cabinets washed, and re-organzied (got rid of some stuff), Oak cabinet cleaned out, too!
Okay, so I have worked 2 days on my fridge, and it's still not done
My toddler has enjoyed eating all kinds of stuff, and I have gotten rid of alot of stuff (well, have it ready to get rid of. I hope to get most of the rest done tomorrow, and Saturday finish up!
Would anyone like to join me in cleaning up/decluttering? If you would, just make up your To Do list, and tell us how you are doing!
