Homemakers' Haven: Detailed Cleaning List for Week Five

The last week of each month we are in the LIVING ROOM/ FAMILY ROOM/ DEN

Now, don't even touch this list if you have not decluttered these areas first. Then you can start working on the detailed cleaning jobs that perhaps you haven't done in weeks or maybe years!

Do not get overwhelmed by this list! Do not expect to get it all done this month. If you like, print the list out for your planner.

What follows here for tasks apply to all of the rooms:

  1. CLEAN COBWEBS
  2. CLEAN WINDOWS
  3. STRAIGHTEN BOOKCASES
  4. WASH ORNAMENTS AND WHAT-NOTS
  5. CLEAN OUT / OFF END TABLE
  6. STRAIGHTEN CLOSETS/ DRAWERS
  7. WIPE FINGERPRINTS FROM WALLS / SWITCHPLATES
  8. POLISH FURNITURE
  9. CLEAN OUT MAGAZINE RACKS
  10. CLEAN / DISINFECT PHONE
  11. CLEAN UNDER CUSHIONS
  12. CLEAN OUT FIREPLACE
  13. MOVE FURNITURE AND VACUUM
  14. SHAMPOO CARPET

If you have a family room, game room, sun porch, or other room that is used by the family for living purposes, then concentrate on decluttering one room each month (or as you find more time). Do not push yourself. They did not get cluttered in one month and they will not get clean in one week.

Remember: baby steps. If you are unable to do any task, just delete it and go to the next one. Do not save them up. You will only frustrate yourself and then you just might crash & burn.  Neither on of us want that to happen now, do we?
