Sneak Peek of Cleaning Chores Week 4

I am going to be perfectly honest with you guys.  I have the list of what I would "like" to do posted below, but I am not going to be able to do much on the list this week.  Why?  Because I am flipping a house!!!  I am at the other house a lot, so my house is getting a lick and a promise this week.  I am embarrassed to say that when I got home last night, I had to run the dishwasher twice.  I am so sore today.  You will hear more about the flip in later posts...I know you will because I am so excited to do it.    I guess it isn't a "true" flip because I bought the house three years ago and had a renter in it during those years.  Boy she did a number on it.

Daily list:
Take out trash
Make sure all items for dinner are available and make a list of anything needed
Clean up all breakfast dishes. Wash them and put them away
Quick clean main bathroom: Wipe off counter and sink, wipe off mirror. Put anything away that was left out.

Wipe off kitchen counters and sink after each meal

Scoop litter box 
Go through mail and either throw it out, deal with it or put it into the decision file

  1. You are more ambitious than I am. Good luck on your flip! That's exciting.

  2. Sounds like my weekly list. To bad you had a bad renter and she trashed the place. Best of luck getting it in shape.

  3. I admire your ambition! I am one of those on again off again people regarding cleaning lists. Sometimes I am in love with them (and my house stay neat and clean) and other times I feel claustrophobic with all the requirements my lists bring.

    1. I consider my list a perfect goal list. I rarely meet the entire thing and if there is a holiday it goes out the window. My list is meant to keep you on track so you can have people over for events, not so that you cant have people over because you haven't swept today! Have Fun!

  4. Good list! I really need to finish going through our "junk" mail pile. And cleaning the inside and outside of the garbage can is something I need to do too!

  5. It took me a long time to figure out how much work it takes to run a household! Kudos to you for writing it all down

  6. I love the closing of the Kitchen, I've been doing it this week and it helps so much! Thanks for the great list
