in the process of simplifying and 'cleaning up' my act (which hasn't gone very well btw), i have started to make my very own
there's all kinds of free printables all over the internet, and when i finally knew what i was looking for from the knowledge of many other bloggers, i created my very own daily and weekly chore list.
i was looking around all over the www, i found this organizing beauty on pinterest
you can find this at My 3 Monsters blog. she also has this as a free printable you can fill in. just follow the link.
notice, how for everyday, she has a different room she works on. i like that. mostly because if i stick to one room, i won't feel like a 'chicken with its head cut off'' going all over the place and getting nowhere. i believe that this will work for me also, or, at least hope so.
so, with Amys help, this is what i came up with for my very own daily and weekly chore list...
i wrote things down in the order that i will be doing my chores. so, i will begin my day by making my bed and clearing off my computer desk if needed. from there i brush my teeth and quick wipe the sink, toilet, tile and mirror. because i KNOW my girls will leave me heaps of leftover 'surprises' when they are getting ready for school.
then, i will start a wash, and head to the living room, the kitchen, my 'office' and lastly, my studio. where, once it's cleared, i can concentrate on making something for a change.
after the daily tasks are done, i will then concentrate on the one room assigned to that day and be done. i then don't have to think about that room for an entire week.
finally, the beauty of it all. the weekend.
the time of rest and play.
i will be doing my daily chores and on saturdays just making simple diy cleaning supplies which takes no time at all. but once thats done i pretty much have the rest of the day to spend quality time with my daughters.
i just hope that this helps me keep myself organized. my home is a far cry from being a haven and i yearn for it to be that and much more, especially for my babies. it's always a great big mess and wonder if a tornado just came thru. but, alas, it did not.
it has been simply the result of a disorganized life.
so no more disorganization and bring on our new haven............ wish me luck!
thank you for visiting and let me know what you think.
