Raise your hand if checklists make you happy.
I’m about to rock your world, then.
Background: I have a large house. I have a family room, a schoolroom/playroom, kitchen, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a loft. And 3 children that make is their MISSION to make it as messy as possible. When we hire housekeepers, it takes 2 women 4.5 hours to clean my house. That means it would take me 9.
Raise your hand if you have 9 hours to clean your house.
Enter this checklist! Now, does this list entail everything you possible need to do to make your house spotless? No. You won’t be scrubbing baseboards or cleaning blinds with this. This list is intended to help you get it to a manageable level. I suppose if you lived in a smaller home, this would be perfect for you to get everything you needed done! For me, it actually takes me closer to 2.5-3 hours to do everything on it. Plus, you end up with 2 clean loads of laundry! Hallelujah!
I do this on Friday, that way I can enjoy Saturday with my family instead of doing household chores. Sure, my children are running along behind me the whole time, but Fridays are cleaning days and I don’t feel bad about it. 🙂
