My weekly house blessing used to be GREAT. My husband and I could get the house CLEAN and ready for the week in one day, working together. I loved it. It set us all up for an easier time during the week. I didn't have to gather the energy to clean and be with my boys every day, I could keep the attention where it should be: on my boys!
With all the changes around here: new work schedule and new baby; that plan isn't working anymore.
So, for the first few weeks of this year, I will be testing a few systems for keeping our home and family happy, at least somewhat organized, in clean clothes, and with limited mess. I will test each method for a minimum of two weeks. Here is a screenshot of my first:
You can also look at it directly here (click the Folder tab to organize it by day), but please don't change anything!
I also intend to clear up our home from clutter in a more general sense, and I think this Declutter and Organizing Calender is the way to go.
As you can see, I started this plan on Sunday. I wanted to be able to tell you how it is going so far!
I feel really good about the list. The daily jobs are basic, and the weekly ones are separated out so I can complete them in very little time. I did slack on it on the days we were gone, so I might have to rethink our "weekend" days, since we do normally spend them out of the house and I don't have time to get the weekly jobs done then.
Stay tuned for next week to see if I keep this system, what adjustments I might make, or if I have found a new schedule to try. How do you keep up with household duties? Please share your thoughts and your system!
