A couple weeks ago I typed up a weekly cleaning schedule and stuck it on the fridge. It goes mostly ignored, but I do use it when I feel motivated and need a place to start. It has also greatly helped me with remembering how long since I last cleaned an area. Whereas before my memory was all just a fog, now I can clearly recall if I’ve done something in the past week, or not.
Today’s housecleaning is supposed to be the TV room, entry room, and sunroom. I don’t need to clean everything, but I do need to improve the spaces for it to ‘count.’
Along with a bunch of little tasks, today I completed two things that I consider more significant.
I cleaned the sliding door tracks:
And vacuumed the recliner and sofa:
I can’t remember the last time I did either of those tasks. It must have been months ago.
I also dusted the TV stand (and all the decor on it), wiped various marks off the walls, dusted picture frames, and vacuumed.
The living areas are looking pretty good now.
