I "try" to get all of my cleaning done first thing in the morning.

I try to get all of my cleaning done before 10am and before I even turn on my PC (otherwise I get distracted!!)


Addison takes a morning nap between 8-10a, and if she happens to be awake then I just put her in the sling and get things done.


I do laundry throughout the day and put dishes in the dishwasher after each meal.


I wash all the sheets/comforters on Wednesdays, so that day is a little busier.


I just like having everything done in the mornings so that I can do what I wish with the rest of my day.


Sometimes, depending on how messy Judd is with the Goldfish crackers that day, I may have to vacuum again in the afternoon, lol

lol Sue, I had the same thought!

I don't have any set schedule, cleaning or otherwise, so seeing everyone else being so organized (and clean, lol) has made me more motivated. Maybe one of these days I won't be rushing around trying to throw in a load of laundry at bedtime so the girls will have clothes for school the next day!

I also do regular maintenance cleaning every day..the kind of thing everyone probably does- I spray down the kitchen...vacuum the

I like to do most of my housework in the morning. I will do chores up until noon if need be. After lunch (or dinner during the summer time, since dh works swings), I do those dishes. After the evening meal, I will do the dishes, as well as anything else I didn't get a chance to do.

I divide my chores up into daily, weekly, monthly, seasonal, and yearly chores. I work on dailys first. Then weeklys, etc. However if the end of the week or whatever comes up and there are things I haven't finished, I will do those first before I start on dailys.
