Clean + Organized – Quick Clean
Hey! It’s Wednesday and that means that it’s VACUUM day. My method? I start with a thorough vacuuming on my second floor, I vacuum the steps and then I move downstairs. When I vacuum, I vacuum all the floors – tile, wood, and carpet. I also use the attachments as needed and get corners and crevices. I find that by doing this once a week, the floors look fresh and clean all week long (for the most part). And yes, I only vacuum the whole house once a week. I do occasionally do touch ups with the vacuum, broom, or sweeper. A great thing about this technique is that all the floors are prepped for tomorrow – Thursday – floor washing day.
How about a couple Quick Clean ideas for the rest of the week?
Remember these should take you 1-5 minutes and can be done anytime you have a little bit of extra time.
stack up paper piles
set a timer for 5 minutes and make 2 piles – sort and toss. Then when you have another 5 minute increment to spare, file the sort papers.
spray and wipe down kitchen appliances
use a microfiber cleaning cloth to eliminate streaks
remove tray, wash it and do a quick wipe-down of the outside of the toaster
I have a GREAT *31* giveaway later this week you’ll definitely want to come back for!

I have been loving your ideas and comments. I am OCD about cleaning my house. I do most of the same things you do maybe on different days but pretty much the same. If you go to my blog “Mimi’s Magic Apron” you will see my schedule. Love your blog and your printables. I have bought a lot of them for my Home Management Binder. Thank you and please keep doing this.
Great tips. I do that with paper piles. Actually, I don’t have the problem that I used to have with them ever since I committed to a different plan last year and finally. FINALLY got a handle on the paper monster.
Thanks so much for doing this. It’s so inspiring!!
