Well, working in kitchens for 6 years and now working as a welder, organization has been part of my actual working life since the beginning. I basically know the ins and outs of making a mess and cleaning it quickly which involves knowing what goes where and being as organized in the department of storage and where things go.
Generally only cleaning I do on a weekly basis is laundry, vacuuming, and dusting. Everything else is done on a daily basis, dishes are cleaned while I cook, other stuff goes into dish washer, and as for nick nacks like pens, paper, video game controllers, etc I just simply put them away where I got them, which is usually in it's respective place around the house.

I've tried to employ beings from the other side to do but... nope. I guess it's understandably beneath them.

Since my wife started working more and since I started working from home, it's been mostly up to me. Now, suddenly, I hear myself voicing the same complaints I've been rolling my eyes to for the last 13 years when hearing them from the wife. I get it now. Man, we are messy.

So, basically, I just try to buy my daughter's help with chocolate coins. She's only five so I have a hard time just having her keep up with her own messes but it's a start. As much as I dig being a housewifedude, I hate cleaning 8 hours a day.

Indeed we are


8 hours a day,it's a full time job,that can be very tiring,but it's good that you can manage it.

I have many helpers. Kids are designated chores on a daily basis,as am I. Schedule is posted on the fridge for reference. For most things around my house,it's "If you make a mess,you clean it up." As the kids get older I expect them to do more. For example,my daughter is 17, and she does her own laundry,keeps her room clean,and does dishes,as well as other random chores. I never vaccume either,she does,but I sweep all the other floors. I'm a bit of a drill sargeant when it comes to cleaning the house.

If you'll find them.

As they'll get older, they will hardly recognise you.

Is that you in your avatar, dollukka? If so, you're very pretty.


I'd do the roomba thing but I'm quite certain that it would set my cats into an absolute terror far worse than the Dyson does. They have learned to associate which hand moves mean that the dreaded beast will come to life. Having it automated might terrify them worse than when my youngest was into Zhu Zhu pets.

To the OP: Top down cleaning. Dust, clean bathrooms, then vaccuum and mop. Not looking forward to spring cleaning this year as last year's was prohibited due to injury. That means two years worth of spring cleaning dirt to eliminate this year. Good times.

Kitchen first, bathroom second, then whatever is left... I have a thing about the first two always being clean, the rest can come or go depending on the mood.

Evening,

I work six out of seven and usually do between 10 and 25 hours of over time a week.
The time I have after work finishes is filled by laundry (with washing and both dryer and "air-dry" loads) usually daily. Cooking dinner and preparing tomorrows lunches culminating in doing dishes used in the preparations in addition to a load of dishes before I begin to cook that accumulated while I was at work...I can't cook in a dirty kitchen. The puppy has to be walked and played with or he won't eat his food. Shoveling snow is also a frequent chore that is usually tackled before I have set foot one in the house. A shower is also a must. I usually need to sweep and vacuum every few days and I must always be on the lookout as the puppy sometimes can't hold his water and no one else here pays it any attention. Recycling is also usually done nightly and the garbage is taken out every 2-3 days to the dumpster. I shop for food at least once or twice a week with time for banking only once a week. I have no car so all transport is by bus adding an extra hour and forty minutes to an overtime workday if I leave before 7pm or two hours and twenty-five minutes if I must leave after 7pm...stupid transit system.
The only time I have to dust or fix things or catch up on anything I neglect during the week is on my only day off. Even so, something always gets forgotten.
Even if I wanted to watch television (which I don't) for even an hour, something in my day wouldn't get done.
I maybe get an hour or less of free time a day to have a beer or decompress.
This has now become the routine since December.
I could really use another hour in the day.

-Peace-

Sad to hear about injury,I guess two years indeed can be very much,but you can get help for this.

Indeed bathroom and kitchen must be first on the cleaning list, but also mites are important to be eliminated.

Yes, yes, I can...it's called enlisting the help of those indentured servants formally known as "my children"...muahahahahhahahah!! It's Spring Break, kiddos!!!! Time for some cleaning fun!


We'll start tomorrow. I'm tired today. (Procrastination 101)

PS. My youngest just heard me cackling and came to investigate. She declared that "tomorrow is never going to happen". Foiled again.

For your earlier question.. it was in disguise.. was called as a little girl so changed it lol

I started spring cleaning today.. it was +10 degrees of celsius and sun was shining and exposing everything haha. First i washed all winter outdoor clothes ( to be packed away ) and brough spring clothings inside.. checked kids shoes etc..
I was operating overseer and hubby was my laborer.. we cleaned everything except windows ( still - cold nights ) at the saturday we have kid´s birthday .. so we would have done it anyway.. just that day was perfect for this.

Yeah, I could see how that might happen considering your prior avatar. God forbid somebody mistakes me for being a kaleidoscope.
I'm human, dammit! lol


I'm looking forward to doing the winter wear tuck away. Unfortunately, my weather locally apparently needs a ritalin prescription so that's not going to be happening any time soon yet.

Happy cleaning!
It always feels so nice in the house after spring cleaning, doesn't it?
