I love To Do lists so I decided to type up a list of all the cleaning jobs that I would do if I were to deep clean every room in the house. When I start cleaning, I print up a copy and then I can give the kids a specific job to do. When they are done they get to highlight it.

One of my all-time favorite books on being organized, had a list of jobs you could do if you only had 5 minutes to spare, 10 minutes, 15 or 30 minutes. Dusting the TV off takes about 1 minute if you're slow. Scrubbing my sinks takes 5 minutes and scrubbing my fridge takes about 15 minutes. Each job makes a big difference to the look of the room and my attitude. These lists help me to see that there are lots of small and quick jobs that I can do in just a couple of minutes. Cleaning doesn't have to be done all at once. Since I've been teaching in Beaumont I find that I have more time in the morning so I use that time to get daily cleaning jobs done like dishes and laundry. I'm also going to try asking Ian to clean/pick up just 3-5 things every morning that need to be put away. He won't be overwhelmed and slowly the room will begin to look better. So, make a list, use the time you have, and do what you can, when you can and you'll be on your way to a clean house and stress free life!
