Anal Moment Monday

What do you mean you don’t have a cleaning schedule posted on your refrigerator??   I use to alternate what chores I would do each weekend – vaccum and dust one weekend and then clean bathrooms the next, but I couldn’t remember what weekend I was on and decided a daily cleaning schedule on paper was the way to go.  Plus, I couldn’t stand going too long with dust on our dark furniture or floors that desparately needed sweeping. So, it goes like this: 

  • Monday – clean master bath
  • Tuesday – clean kids bath
  • Wednesday – clean towels
  • Thursday – wash “gentle cycle” clothes
  • Friday – sweep, do laundry
  • Saturday – dust, wash sheets
  • Sunday – vaccum

Oh, and I might also have a monthly cleaning schedule too.  It might have things such as in January its time for fan and light fixture cleaning and in February it might say something about cleaning air vents and blinds, etc. 

Don’t judge me….I LOVE a clean house.   I get that from my mom!! She’s the only one that understands that crumb on the floor must go NOW and not later or that the dust bunnies will attack if not cleaned often.

Doesn’t everyone make their grocery list in the order of the layout of the store???  Really, this helps go soooo much faster. You should try it.  I start my list with produce, cheese, meats, snacks, baking items, canned foods, condiments, breakfast, dairy, frozen section, paper goods, beauty products, and finally baby section.   We also tear the list in half and each take one side of the store.  We get done in about 30 minutes tops!!  Its lovely.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who color codes my closet, which includes separating short and long sleeve clothes??? If I’m feeling a bit coral I can go to the coral section and if I’m feeling a bit brown I go straight for the brown section.  Ya see…saves time. I’m all about saving time.

Doesn’t everyone make a to-do list that includes making other lists????  I giggled to myself on the way to work as I realized my list I made last night for my “to-do’s” during the week included a to-do to make a list of dates for preparing for Alex’s party in February.  I like to backwards plan, ya know!!  I might be anal, but I’m one organized momma.
