Today I'm starting something new. I'm going to post my day-by-day housekeeping to-do lists here in case anyone wants to follow along. I'm mainly just doing this for my own personal accountability and reference. You may not need the reminder for these things, but Random Housekeepers like me need all the little helpful reminders we can get. ;-)
Just to get started, here's a list of things I have on my "To Do" list every single day.
[ ] Make bed.
[ ] Empty/fill/run dishwasher.
[ ] Clean kitchen sink/counter.
[ ] Sweep kitchen floor.
[ ] Ten Minute Tidy
of main living areas.
[ ] Empty garbage(s).
This daily list is subject to change without notice--whenever I realize something else that's falling through the cracks. ;-)
If you join this group, you'll receive a mailing from me every day (usually sent out the night before). In the Chore List mailing, you'll find a list of Everyday stuff, and also the list of each day's particular job list. I may send out a second note from time-to-time, but things will always stay short. Feel free to share this with your Random Housekeeping friends! I'm not an expert in housekeeping ... just a real person -- like you!
Ever since becoming a displaced homemaker, a single parent of three, and going back to college full-time, my life got super crazy and my housekeeping skills suffered greatly. Even other mailing lists and online support groups weren't helpful to me (yep, I flunked FLYing) LOL! I just ended up feeling worse about my own situation and my lack of discipline. But knowing myself, I knew that sending out a notice (even if it's just being read by me!) would keep me plugging away.
