A couple of things that work for us:
• Picking a Day to Pay Bills. We keep incoming bills in a certain place on our entryway table and always pay them online on Friday. Friday is also our day for watering plants and cleaning out the fridge. We like to start the weekend with these chores done and designating a day seems to work well.
• Trader Joe's Kitchen Cloths: These cloths, along with our vinegar/tea tree/lavender oil solution in a spray bottle, make cleaning up after mealtimes so easy. Plus, we don't use paper towels anymore. We use one color for the floor and one color for counters and table. We have a couple of each color so we can wash them a few times a week.
• We clean our small kitchen floor with a rag and spray bottle of solution rather than a mop and bucket. It just feels cleaner that way, and somehow we feel like it's easier than dragging out the mop so we do it much more often.
What works for you?
