Ok, I admit it.. it’s possible I’m a borderline slob. It’s not that I’m dirty, per se, it’s just that I have a habit of leaving stuff out and not putting it away. I’ll walk in the house, plop things down wherever I there’s some free space and that’s where they sit for weeks (months?) at a time. Tada, welcome to your new home!

I actually googled the word slob to get the complete definition and it’s not pretty:

slob (släb) – noun, informal
1. a lazy and slovenly person.

And the synonyms are not any better:

layabout, good-for-nothing, sluggard, laggardslacker, lazybones, bum, couch potato

Ouch! Ok, it’s not as bad as all that over here, but maybe I can admit to slacker and lazybones? It’s that I just don’t like cleaning. I can see how maybe it’s therapeutic for some people, but who the heck really ENJOYS it?

I’d end up spending a Saturday or Sunday doing a big cleaning and spending half the day doing it (with a little procrastination thrown in, or course)!

I’ve been looking for a simple cleaning routine to help me get things cleaned up and then stay on top of things. It had to be something that was easy to follow and didn’t take half a day to do – because who has time for that?

I found a couple of different cleaning charts and ideas on Pinterest and then put together one that I thought would help me out and made the most sense for my own schedule. You are welcome to download mine below or search for something that will work for you. I’m going to start following it this week to give it a try. I’ll be documenting how it goes this week and if it saves me time, because honestly, that’s what it’s really all about here!
