Friday’s is living room/laundry room day/dining room (which is actually where our computer is right now).
The 10 minute tidy is often putting stuff away in the living room and most things pretty well have a spot that doesn’t require a whole lot of organization. I tend to set a timer for about 10 minutes and just clean and organize in these areas. I switch out the few books that P has in the living room. I only like to keep 10 or so here but I try to switch them out weekly so she’s getting a variety.
I also try to organize stuff in my laundry room. I have most of my cleaning products and paper products in there, on top of all the laundry items. It’s not very big (but it’s not in the garage so I pretty well adore it!). I also try to clean out the washing machine with either bleach or vinegar (I try to rotate) every month, as well as clean out the vent on my dryer of lint.
I usually grocery shop on Fridays.
I try to get pictures off whatever cameras I’ve used that week to store on our hard drive.
I check our google calendar (which is pretty much what runs my life) to make sure stuff that needs to transfer to our family calendar is doing so.
Monthly I check the watering schedule and put it right for the month we’re in.
Wash: I wash just colors on this day.
- S vacuums the stairs with our small vacuum
- C dusts
See, the week tapers off. Compare this to Monday’s post. I’m just tired by Fridays. I also often have school stuff I’m doing or playgroup for P on Fridays. I try to make it my “fun” day (even if that just involves going to playgroup).
