So as I forged ahead with new knees and the determination to get my home clean. I developed a cleaning routine that not only got my home sparkling but also didn’t tie up an entire day accomplishing that task. At the end of this year, my home is cleaner than before and I don’t spend all day cleaning.
Now with these two boys, I vacuum the entire house about four times a week. That step takes about 20 minutes.
Monday: Dust and Polish with Glass cleaner
Wednesday: After vacuuming, mop all floors
Wash baseboards in one room
Saturday: Clean our bedroom
Clean my bathroom
Each one of these steps takes about 30 minutes. However, I can take my time and stretch out these chores. I have plenty of time to get side-tracked into organizing any drawers, clean a closet or washing walls.
I try to stick to this routine because honestly, my home is much cleaner than with a cleaning lady. Oh yeah, and I save $200 a month!!!
