My pet peeve is stuff on the kitchen counters or dinning room table!! ARRGGGHHHH! And what has really been helping me lately is using a housekeeping checklist I printed out from another coupon blog. I just go through it in the morning and I am so surprised on how easy it is to get the house clean and maintain it clean if you do a little bit everyday! I even “scheduled” email checks and couponing in between cleaning and laundry.
We have 3 boys; 14, 12, and 7. We have 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 hampster, and chickens. Out house is a zoo, but everyone has a job. If we don’t stay on top of our daily chores, then it can get bad quick. I appreciate the emails from the Flylady for the kids. She has them do random things every couple of days to stay on top of things. One time she had them go throught there markers and through the bad ones out. I don’t have time to think of that!
I could go on and on, but books are my favorite! Martha Stewart has a home cleaning handbook that is very extensive. Schedules, ideas, cleaning products and how to use them…very informative.
If you have toddlers you want to keep some nail polish remover around…It cleans sharpie marker off hard surfaces in a jippie. I wouldn’t use it on wood finishes though. For wood, try a little toothpaste.
