Reader Assignement

Hey all!

Would you all mind sharing one thing (or more) that you do during the day to keep your sanity and your house clean?

  1. Hmmm…to keep my sanity: the blog or reading a fun book or crochet. I rarely get to do all of these things but if I can get to one my sanity for the day is usually saved, providing that I have already said my prayers of course – because that is the ultimate sanity saver (but you already know that!).

    To keep my house clean: empty the dishwasher, fill the dishwasher, empty the dishwasher, fill the dishwasher! :o) I also have gotten into the habit of emptying all the little trash cans daily.

  2. Routine! Routine! Routine!

    Once you get your house the way you want it, doing a little each day to keep up makes a huge difference.

    Have the kids help – generally, I think kids like to do what mom & dad are doing, and they like to be helpful.

    Usually, I get the ‘big stuff’ (i.e. mopping) done while Martin is napping, then enjoy the rest of nap time to myself.

    My sanity depends on a clean house. ( I know. I’m a freak.)

  3. Yes, Andrea you are! 🙂

  4. I have three separate cleaning lists: one for daily tasks (ie. dishes, at LEAST one load of laundry, etc), one for weekly tasks (each day of the week has a different job ie. Wed – clean bathroom & wash bath rugs. Thurs-wash bed linen, etc.), and a dry erase board that has a pre-printed calendar on it where I just fill in monthly tasks – ie. windows, door knobs, washing the carpet w/ the carpet cleaner. I make a good effort to get what I need to get done, but obviously it doesn’t always happen! I just do what I can do, and not stress about the rest. Having the kids help out is nice, too. They LOVE to fold laundry!
