Getting More Free Time During the Weekend.

Cleaning during the week is a MUST! Usually we put off cleaning until the weekend however, in doing this we are adding more and more to do during the weekend which leads to less time to relax and more stress.

I try to clean the house throughout the week to help make the weekend as relaxing as I can. Some of the things I do during the week can range from less demanding house work to more demanding house work.

For example I'll put a few loads of laundry into the washer while Leilani is doing homework or while I'm cooking dinner. By the time she's done with her homework so is the washer and one more thing checked off my To-Do List. Other times I'll simply sweep the floor or wipe the sink down the bathroom after brushing my teeth in the morning when I have an extra minute.

If cleaning during the week is a new idea to you try easing into it by doing one of the following this week.

  • Laundry
  • Cleaning the stove
  • Mop the floors in the whole house or two of the rooms
  • Clean the bathroom.

The trick is to do the cleaning in parts so that it's not too demanding during the week but just enough to help reduce the cleaning list over the weekend.

Do you clean during the week? Let me know below.
