I think I am a clean-aholic after reading this. I do half of that list almost every day. Can anyone say OCD much haha?

@ Mrs.chubbybunny-me too! If I cleaned my house on this schedule my house would always be a disaster! BUT I have 2 kids and 2 dogs. If I were single, it would be ALOT easier.

I knew this sounded too good to be true! There’s no way I could clean all the bathrooms in our house in 20 minutes. Also… 10 days in between surface cleaning the kitchen?!?! EWW! I clean our kitchen at least every 2-3 days. Also I vacuum incessantly. 

@Mrs.ChubbyBunny: I think I must be OCD too!

@Mrs.ChubbyBunny: Me too. And if I only cleaned my bathroom once every 30 days it would seriously be a giant, hairy mess. eww

I already do this on my own (more often though), but thank you for sharing.  =) I do wish I had a washer and dryer though.  It’d make life so much simpler.  It’s the only thing I truly put off.

Thanks for posting the link. Very interesting. I definitely like the idea of breaking things up into manageable tasks. But I agree that certain things in the post are problematic, depending on what areas of your house need the most attention. I am always picking up the living room, because the clutter piles up daily.

Like I don’t have enough laundry to “do a  bit each day”. I seperate my clothes (dark, color, white, towels) and it takes about a week for a full load of any of these.

I’m guilty of not doing the dishes after every meal. I put dishes in the dishwasher every day, but washing the pots.pans by hand tends to be an every second day task. After work, I feel like I never get time to do anything once I cook, eat and clean up our dishes. So sometimes I let it stack up and tackle another project like going through the mail or getting groceries.
