When I first became a stay at home mom I ran my home very efficiently. I was use to organizing days and having schedules from my job. That mentality leaked out in my home. At that time we only had one small child. He was two (now 16) when the Lord began to prompt my heart to be a homemaker, homeschooling, and stay at home mom. Two more kids later,a growing ministry, a whirl of health problems, and just plain life often affected my ability to run a smooth sailing ship no matter how much I tried.
When my children were all younger I cleaned my home on Monday, did office and menu planning on Wednesday, cleaned fridge and deep cleaned an area on Thursday, and ran errands and grocery shopped on Friday.
This worked so well for us then. My kids were younger, took naps, and didn't need a full day of schooling. Now is a different story. Plus, my health is no where like it was then. I was very healthy and full of energy. I am not this way now...AT ALL.
My question to you is.....DO YOU DO ONCE A WEEK CLEANING OR CERTAIN ROOMS FOR CERTAIN DAYS? Are you a Marathon cleaner-Do it all one day a week or do you do it a different way?
When I refer to cleaning I mean mopping, dusting, scrubbing baths, and deeper needs. I always have a decent presentable home due to habit from when I was a Pastor's Wife where random visits unexpected always happened. I have a decent system as far as keeping our home picked up, dishes done, and etc. But I am having a hard time finding a flow that works for me for other things.
PLEASE SHARE!!!! I would love to hear what you do and how you do it!!!
