I'm feeling rather overwhelmed! I like things to be neat, clean and organized and yet they rarely are and then I feel out of controlconfused. I thought perhaps I ought to have lists so that I can know what/ when Ishould be doing something but the whole things seems so huge, I don't know where to begin. Does anyone else work to such things and, if so, would they be willing to share them?

TIA for any help!

Come and see us on the Slatterns thread?? We all do lists, any type of list to get us through the day/week/month....

EVeryone's list is different, but you will get some good ideas from them all and be able, maybe, to create your own lists....

Slatterns are here

here is my lists
keep kitchen nice

clean bathroom
wash towels
wash either ours or the kids beds (I know I should do it more often)
mop wooden floors
clean chickens out (obviously this os dwependent on you having chickens)

take food of and clean shelves on dresser thing

move furniture and hoover underneath.

I try to always keep the lounge nice and the dining table clear byut these are a constant battle.

I think my house is ok.

Wipe over bath once out of shower
Wash dishes straight after every meal
Clean work surface
Sweep floor
Dust lounge
Hoover lounge and hallway

Patio doors
Change bedding
Wipe out fridge/freezer
Wipe over the cooker
Dust bedrooms
Hoover bedrooms sweep and mop bathroom floor
Mop kitchen floor
Give bathroom a good scrub

Pull all food out of kitchen cupboards and clean
