I've noticed that when i work full time I get home and i go oh i dont want to clean so I'll do the little things like put away shoes or hang jackets..tidy up after a meal snack or something ive done but...any of the big things like laundry, washing clothes, emptying all the trash and taking it to the dump...i wait til the weekend and do it then. Does any one else do this or do you clean different bits each day?

I will normally do it piece by piece such as doing laundry two days once and emptying trash two or three days once. For those big things like ironing clothes, vacumn, cleaning bathroom (two units) and floor cleaning like sweeping and mopping would be once a week during weekend.

I try and empty the trashes into a bigger bag as they get full then sundays i drive the trash to the dump and the recycling (cardboard and newspapers) to the recycling drop off. I like my "Cleaning days" on the weekend. Gives me soemthing to do when I dont have plans.

I'm afraid that I'm an all or nothing housecleaner. I tend to put it off and then go into overdrive and clean it all. I expect perfection from myself when I do clean, so I have to devote my time exclusively to it to get it done.

I try not to clean at all. I live alone, so I can get away with it But, the experts say, you should at least pick up a bit every day. You set your timer for 5 minutes and just pick up everything you can in that time. Other than that, just take out the trash when the can is full, put the laundry away when it is done, load the dishwasher when you are done eating. When I do clean, I take the whole weekend, make a pitcher of margaritas and start at one corner of the aprtment and work my way through the whole thing. Then I am find for a few months again.
