Blog: Take The Stress Out Of Housecleaning
Make your own cleaning routine to match your lifestyle

I know that you read all of the latest hints for cleaning shortcuts and always look for the 'miracle cure' for keeping the house clean----I know that I do!

Here are a few tips that will help you to use those tips to your advantage and get that cleaning finished so you can have time for fun.
1. Make a system that works the best for your lifestyle.
It should be designed around your timeframe, if you have kids, who is going to help with the chores and when it will be done.
2. Handle everything once.
If you are vacuuming, vacuum the whole house, not just one room.
3. Make sure that you aren't disturbed!
Let the phone ring or go to the answering machine. You can call them back when you are taking a break or have the time to talk. Hang on note on the door-unkless you plan on helping me clean my house-DON'T COME IN!
4. Keep notes
always have a paper or notebook handy for little things that you find along the way that you want to get finihsed. Such as cleaning out the closet of all of those things that you don't wear any more. You can always check your notes when you have time for projects to do.
5. One thing at a time
Don't try to do 10 things at once, Nothing will be accomplished to the best of your ability and you will be disappointed in the outcome, only causing you more frustration.
6. Keep it short and sweet!
Clean in small amounts of time on a daily basis and it will help to cut down on the major cleaning that you have. Such as wipe the bathtub or shower down when you have the steam for the water to help you clean, it goes a lot faster and when it is time to clean the bathroom, the shower and tub area is already finished!
Jan offers tips and hints on home and office organizing and shortcuts for getting those cleaning chores finished so you can enjoy life! Go to www.organizingyourlifetheeasyway.com for tips, hints and shortcuts that will make your life easier.

Jan's Website:


Fun Things To Do

  • Fishing Lake Michigan
    Whether it is by boat or off the pier, there is nothing like getting that first Coho or King.
  • Grandchildren are fun
    Making memories for your grandchildren of all of the fun times they had with grandma and grandpa is one of the best memories you will make for yourself too.
  • Camping
    A tent, a firepit and sitting in the woods is a campers dream. We spend a lot of time camping in Northern Wisconsin and I have tons of camping recipes to share.

TV Shows

  • American Idol
    I am hooked on this show, nothing interrupts me when this is on. By the time they get to Hollywood, I already have the top ten picked out.
  • Last Comic Standing
    I love to see how these people, take the judges advice and change their tactics to become great comics, instead of just a comic.
  • House
    Now really, isn't he the kind of doctor you want on your side? He always has a reason for his actions, he looks until he finds the cure and he has flaws just like the rest of us.
  • Any home make over show
    I get some of my best ideas off of these shows and I also find things that I wouldn't dream of doing to someone elses home. I will admit, there are times that I wish they would call me and ask for my help!
