Thursdays is my “downstairs rooms” days. We mostly live on 2 levels of our house (it’s a split level, it sounds bigger then it is), and the other level has an office, a guest room and a playroom (which will one day be turned into the TV room).
So, one week I focus on the playroom. I mostly switch out toys (we have two sets of cabinets down there and I bring toys from the higher cabinets down to the lower ones and bring other toys up — I’m a huge fan of not having a lot of toys out, but switching them). I pretty well set a timer of 20 minutes and just clean what I can. The playroom is pretty well the kids domain to keep clean, but sometimes their version of “clean” and my version of clean sometimes differ. Go figure.
The other week I do filing in the office and then set a timer for 5-20 minutes (I often work on Thursdays so it really depends on when I need to be there and how I’m doing getting us out the door) to organize stuff in there. The office kind of turns into a catch-all and I am slowly downsizing my scrapboking stuff. I really need to work on that part a little better.
