House Cleaning - Three Ways To Finding The Time

It's always a challenge finding time to clean my house. Seems the hours, days and weeks just fly by, so much to do, so little time. Here are three ways to fit in your house cleaning.

1. Schedule it in. We all make appointments, whether it is for ourselves or someone else. Before we set up an appointment we check our schedules, making sure we find the best time. Why not schedule a house cleaning appointment. Pick a time once a week and make that a regular appointment, if we need to cancel be sure to reschedule it for that week. I find that since I keep up with cleaning once a week, it doesn't take me as long and there isn't much dust.

2. One room a day. Instead of choosing one day a week to clean, try cleaning one room a day. Our house won't be clean at once, but by the end of the week the whole house will be cleaned. Monday comes and we are starting again. Sometimes when I'm cooking and have something in the oven, I'll do a quick wipe down of all the counters. While the kids are in the tub, I wipe down the bathroom and clean the toilet.

3. Hand off a room. If there are other people living in the house and are old enough to take on responsibility, then hand off a room. We can either have them choose or we can choose the room for them. Let them help with the cleaning and I don't think asking for help with "one" room in the house is asking too much. Once we have less rooms to clean, the easier it is to get the rest of the house done.
