Unload dishwasher & put dishes away

Wipe inside microwave and oven.

Scrub sink.
Flush kitchen drains with boiling water.
Dust kitchen and dining room.

Wednesday

Dust all living room surfaces – electronics, books, lamps, furniture.

  3. Dang, Tara… will you come to my house? Just the very first thing on your list sounds so luxurious to me right now (a clean living room floor every day). I just had to go out and buy new vacuum belts so that I could vacuum ours. While I was at it, I bought some extra vacuum bags and realized what an embarrassingly long time it’s been since I had to buy a new stash… Why am I admitting this to the world?

    Good luck with your resolution! I’m hoping your success will inspire me.
