Rotation: 5 Weeks to a Clean House Week 4

You have made it to week 4!!!  My house looks so much better, however, we had sickness in the house last week.  I did the bare minimum and you know house didnt fall apart!!!

I still tried to close the kitchen and I did a quick clean on my bathrooms plus when someone "used" the bathroom I cleaned up after them.  I expected to see my house fall back to its prior state but it did NOT!

If you have a sick week, you can choose to do that week over again, or you can choose to skip it and move on.  Since we rotate through, you will catch it again the next time through.

Remember you are not a martyr!!  If the list says organize a space, you are not required to take everything out of the room and put it all back again in order in a single day.  Your goal is to spend some time in that room organizing.  An example of this is my bookshelf.  I have been working on my bookshelf with each rotation through.  First, I decided that organize bookshelf meant having all the books actually on the bookshelf.  I did that in one week.  The next week, the bookshelf was crammed full of books, so I scanned the bookshelf for books I could easily part with and donated them.  The next week, I started on the top shelf, dusted and organized it.  I am still working my way through it, but all the books fit now.  In a few weeks, organizing the bookshelf will mean scanning it, running a dust cloth over the outside of the books and moving onto something else.
