Cleaning Zone - Tuesdays

Okay .. I  know it's Wednesday, but I really wanted to tell you about the buns I baked on Tuesday, so that won :)  

As I clean my house zone by zone each day (in theory), it becomes more organized and clean (in theory). Isn't it great? (in theory) 

Tuesday = Pantry and Entrance 

  • Pantry:
    • sweep
    • take stock out for kitchen
    • organize shelves
  • Entrance & Breezeway
    • sweep & vacuum
    • sort shoes & jackets
    • clean shoe shelf
    • dust walls
    • wipe doors & door knobs
    • wash windows in & out
Keep in mind .. this is my 'dream list' of what I'd like to get done in each room if time and motivation were not a factor. But, since they are, I have yet to dust walls, wipe doors and knobs, or wash the windows. But hey - at least it's swept and the shoes are in neat rows. Way better than it was! ... and you remember my pantry, right?

As I  mentioned on the Monday post, I get to whatever I can in about 2 interrupted hours, (or less depending on motivation) and leave the rest. That's it for house cleaning on Tuesdays. The normal list (below) doesn't include cleaning - just daily operations stuff:
  • make lunch & supper
  • dishes
  • laundry
  • bathe children
  • tidy all rooms
  • return phone calls
  • emtpy garbages as needed

How do you systemize your house maintenance? Do you find (like me) that a system is necessary, but finding the right one for you can mean trying about a hundred (and then several times each), to find something that works for  you?
