Mondays is kitchen time.
I clean out the fridge and the top of the stove (we have a ceramic stove top now, so I do the cerama brite every Monday… should i do it more often then that? Anyone?). I also clean out the fridge. I try to go through everything that’s in it, throw away the gross-ness and re-organize from just throwing stuff in the rest of the week. It’s always nice to have an organized fridge. We now have a garage fridge also so that’s nice to hold the overflow (of course, we can’t really keep stuff in the garage that we plan to eat because it’s SO hot, so a lot of the soda/juice etc that I used to keep in my garage are now in that fridge). I have also traditionally just gone in a circular rotation around the kitchen cleaning out cabinets, re-lining if necessary, and just organizing. I mostly just set a timer for 20 minutes for all this cleaning and organizing. It feels nice to make sure I’m hitting all the major areas during the week.
It’s also my day to sweep and mop… I think I went over that last week. I am trying to use either just ammonia or vinegar in my water with the Rubbermaid sprayer. I have some pine sol, so I may use that every now and then. You can just keep the pre-mixed stuff and use it again next time. Loving the new mop
On Mondays I wash the bathmats, every 2-3 weeks depending on how ugly they look. I do the whites, and the kids clothes (the kids separate all their whites and put those with ours and I do all of those twice a week, and then I do their colored clothes together — Conner folds his own laundry).
On Mondays, Conner cleans all the counters (including underneath stuff) with an antibacterial wipe. He sorts their laundry, he folds laundry and gets all the trash. Spencer cleans the front of the stove with window cleaner and the sliding glass door with window cleaner.
I intentionally have a lot of work on Mondays. I don’t usually work and I am usually ready to get a jump on things after the weekend. Go me.
