Tuesday's checklist:
-laundry
-swish and swipe
-dishes
-plan lunch
-toss 25 things
-garbage day

Today's target chore is to clean out the fridge.  Not just toss out themore aggressive/stinky stuff, but to spend 15 minutes really clearingthings out, and wiping down some shelves if you have time.  If youdon't have time, the shelves will still be there another day.

Monday!

It's Monday morning, and it's (drumroll, please) KITCHEN WEEK!

The usual Monday morning stuff applies:  laundry, swish and swipe, floors, and watering the plants.

The target chore for today is to spend 15 minutes wiping down thecabinet fronts.  Depending on how much cabinetry you have and how longit's been since you did this, you may or may not get everything allsparkly clean in that time frame.  If you don't, big deal.  It's stillbetter than it was before, which is the whole point.

Checklist:
-laundry
-swish and swipe
-dishes
-dinner
-throw away 25 things

Today is anti-procrastination day: do something you've been "getting around to" for a while.

Since it's the first of the month, our target room for the next couple of days is the dining room. (If you don't have a separate dining room, count whereever you keep your eating table.) A lot of us tend to eat in front of the tv, so the dining room kind of turns into a ghost town/graveyard for crap. Spend 15 minutes clearing out any kind of crap that doesn't belong in that room.

Sorry about yesterday's absence.  I'm a bit under the weather, and ourinternet connection was out for a long time yesterday.  If you're not 100% satisfied with our service, please contact the customer servicedepartment, and I'll gladly refund your subscription fee.

Today's morning reminders:
-laundry
-swish and swipe

It's Wednesday, time to bring the trash cans in from the road anddust.  This is the last day in the living room, so the mission today isto deal with the whatever you've just dumped in there that doesn'treally belong or is outdated.  The old magazines or catalogs, the pileof sales circulars you meant to look through, those shoes you weregoing to put away in just a minute, that candy that's been sitting inthe dish untouched so long it's gathered dust, whatever.  Get rid ofit. 


Also, I will probably only be making one posting on Friday, as I'm going to be working at the vet clinic all day. I'm not writing anything before I leave the house at 7:30 that morning, and you don't want to see it after I get home after 6 that night. So one lunch-time posting it is. Again, if you're any way dissatisfied, feel free to ask for your money back.

Today is Friday--spend 5 or 10 minutes clearing out your purse and/or car.

This is the last day of Zone 4, the bathroom.  Go through your medicinecabinet and toss expired prescriptions, dried up stuff, anything that'snot a)in useful condition, and b)something you're likely to use.

Evening stuff

Five minutes to rescue whatever room you've been trying to junk up today, and finish up whatever you started and then left.
Reminder checklist for this morning/early afternoon:
-laundry
-swish and swipe (do the tub next time you're in it)
-dishes
-dinner
-throw away 25 things

Today is Thursday, which is anti-procrastination day.  Find somethingyou've been putting off, and take care of it today.  If you can't getit finished, at least move it along to the next step.  Also, take alook at the calendar and see if there's anything important/specialcoming up next week you need to make plans for. 

This is also the day to go through the house and update the shoppinglist.  Since this is bathroom week, make especially sure you checklevels on tp, shampoo, soap, and toothpaste. 

The target chore for today is to scrub your sink and counter.  Even if you take an old toothbrush to the stuff around the base of the faucetand handle, this shouldn't take more than ten minutes.  If it takeslonger than that, your sink is far too large, or else you're far too anal.
