2013 Cleaning Schedule

One of the comments I get most about my blog is about my cleaning schedule.  It's rigorous, I am aware.  Possibly too rigorous, I am also aware of that, but it keeps me on track. 

To review posts I've already written.

I use an app called Astrid.  It is a "to-do" list app that helps me to cross stuff off.  Drew and I each have our own apps, but we share a list of household duties, and I am also able to put things on HIS to-do list (do you hear the angels of heaven singing right now -- sadly, just because it's on his list doesn't mean it gets done, but somehow just putting it on his list makes me feel better).

I love this app, because a lot of jobs don't have to be done weekly, but do need doing, so I am able to schedule them in astrid.  That way I'm not having to really think about what needs getting done.  I just do what comes up on my phone.

For instance, right now I am realizing I have no "clean cobwebs" job in my phone and it's something I am missing.  I'm trying to figure out how often I really need to do it and a day it will fit well on, and I will plug it into astrid.  After a little thought I think I will do it monthly on Fridays.  Whamo, I will add it.

Anyway, now that we've been in this house for just about 18 months (seriously, how did that happen?) I am tweeking it a little bit to work best for us.  I figure I'll re-do it on the blog.

Are you excited?

Me neither.  In fact, it makes me want to wear pants to church, but being a stay at home mom means saving the money I would otherwise use on a cleaning service by doing it myself.  It's not like I love to clean, but it's something that needs gettin' done.  And boy oh boy does it feel good to be done!
