Little Lessons – Clean Routine

Little Lessons – Clean Routine

The List Lady strikes again!  Today’s little lesson is my home cleaning schedule, with the bonus of my personal morning tasks.  This list may seem like mundane and common sense duties, I find that it helps me to have it in list form with handy boxes to check off when a task is complete.  Your list will very likely not look exactly like mine (are you writing an Everything Beautiful blog?) but is reasonably easy to change out and in the appropriate assignments.

Yes, I have “brush teeth” as a responsibility.  Hey, some days it may be the only entry that gets a check!
