I have had a cleaning dilemma off and on for years. Should I pick a day and deep clean the whole house or should I spread it over several days or even clean one room a day. My house is usually tidy. (Don't hate me.) I'm talking about deep cleaning- dusting, organizing, vacuuming, scrubbing, mopping floors etc. My house isn't that large...about 1800 square feet so it shouldn't take that long, but it seems to take a good 6 hours. This often includes laundry too. I'm not even going to pretend I'm always caught up on laundry though. Both of my sisters, who have lived with me for months at a time read my blog and know about my laundry issues. :0)
Friday works nicely for me because it is a light school day, our weekends are more relaxing and I can wake up Monday morning and not have dust bunnies looking up at me!
But this Friday, we met some friends at a park which was fun so the cleaning didn't get done. Phillip went to an all-day jazz festival so I cleaned this evening but this wouldn't have worked if he had been home today. I guess there is a 3rd option....get a cleaning lady! ;0)
Any advice from you cleaning experts out there?
