I feel like the ONLY person in the world some days who doesn’t subscribe to some sort of “Chore Every Day” method of keeping the house clean. I’ve tried, I follow several “Clean Mama” types on Instagram, I’ve studied the Fly Lady, I totally logically support all of their ideas/suggestions/tips/calendars.
But I just can’t do it. And this weekend I figured out why.
It’s because I like the feeling of that ONE DAY where every thing is perfect. We had a birthday dinner Sunday and for that dinner everything was freshly cleaned: Floors, bathrooms, shelves…it was all perfect for that one event and it felt GREAT. I think the daily upkeep method deprives me of that ON THIS DAY IT IS ALL PERFECT! feeling and that’s why I don’t do it.
But I have too, because our house is on the market.
So, this week? I’m trying again. The house was perfect on Sunday so I’m trying to keep up with some sort of “daily chore” schedule that will keep the house “show ready” constantly. We are doing showings “appointment only” since we have pets that have to be taken care of, so I always have time to do some last minute pick up, but this will keep me from having to scrub showers or mop floors.
Hopefully. If I can even stick to it. Which I probably won’t.
