In Pursuit of an Organized Life

. . . putting life in order


on February 16, 2012

I was talking to someone and they say that they schedule 3 hours a week for cleaning. I had never thought of the total amount of time required to clean the whole house. Does that seem like a realistic amount? Do you know how much time you spend cleaning/organizing each week? Sometimes I’ll say I’ll clean it all on the weekend and then get burnt out or have other stuff to do and not get to it. Having that time amount may help to divide it up through out the week or not too many other tasks scheduled if I choose to cram it in one day. I can always adjust the time as I see realistic for my house. I may also just keep that time frame and get more and more done as the house gets cleaner and I get more efficient.

I have also heard of people timing how long specific chores take. It could help with knowing how much to schedule for the task, but mainly I think it would help me from procrastinating. If I knew the chore only took 5 minutes, I think it would be harder to put it off and stay on the couch.

I’d love to hear if you have done this and if it helped motivate you.  Have a great day!
