cleaning

When I clean I sweat the small stuff, there is no such thing as clean enough for me. I put to much focus on one area so it takes me twice as long to clean. We both work full time jobs so we take turns cleaning. When my husband cleans it takes him two hours tops with me it takes all day. I finally found a system for myself. I make two lists: hands-one tasks like (clear clutter, dust, vacuum, mop) and hands-off tasks(do laundry, run the dishwasher, spray shower). Then pair up one assignment from each column and time myself per room so I don't spend allot of time on one room and I can still do some detailing just a little at a time.

Does anyone else have a system set up to make your cleaning easier?

    I have lists and no one in the house cleans as thoroughly as I do so when I get started cleaning I can literally take hours. I'm a recovering neat knick.

      I am beyond blessed, with a healthy little girl, and a wonderful husband who challenges me and makes me a better person each and every day. The best title I have ever been given is that of "MOTHER!" I carry this title with great joy.
