The solution is little bits of cleaning each day. Most take only a few minutes, and I find it easier to accomplish in smaller portions.
This week, I'll post my schedule. It works for me. Each day includes dishes (obviously) and a designated set of laundry.
Monday: Wipe mirrors (and the occasional window)
In all honesty, dusting is my least favorite, so usually this means just swiping everything with a Static Duster. That's OK in my book because it's still more than I used to do as far as dusting. It also makes it much easier to actually move everything and dust with Pledge and a cloth when I feel like it.
I'm certainly not claiming to be a housekeeping expert, and this is obviously not the full solution since I still have my 'magnet spots' that collect piles of junk regularly (i.e. the computer desk area and my yarn corner of the couch), but it helps!
On the crochet front, I am just finishing up the last steps of those projects I told you about, so rather than post them 99% done, I'm hoping to finish the last steps soon and post the completed project.
