I have a confession to make. I'm not a very good housekeeper. LOL. So I've enlisted the help of the "Flylady," via Flylady.com.
Mondays are the day to do a quick clean (about 10 min on each task) of the whole house: Empty all trash cans and take them to the big trash can outside; purge magazines; dust (including fans); quick-clean all mirrors and windows; shake out all rugs or wash; vacuum; and mop.
The rest of the week, it's more detailed work in one room per week. For example, one week might be the bedroom and each day I'll do something different in that room, which includes a 15-min decluttering session, and if you don't need to declutter in that room, then you do even more detailed cleaning or work on another room. Some days she has you doing a 27-Fling (I think is what it's called?) where you take a big trash bag and go through your house and throw away 27 items you don't need anymore. There's more, but you get the idea.
