I make a to-do list every day. Every single day.
And I am sure some are thinking: What in the world is there to keep up with for a Mama that stays home with her children all day?
Hence, my to-do list.
It was one of my New Year’s Resolutions to implement some type of cleaning system for our house. And with that came the need for a good planner.
I’m still working on the cleaning system, but I have found a fabulous planner that really works for me during this season of my life.
In years past, I would’ve thought it completely unnecessary to have something so…regimented. I mean, who really needs things planned down to the hour? Certainly not me!
Well, I caved and bought the Mead 2010 Daily/Monthly Calendar. It has a month at-a-glance and then a daily/hourly guide.
Yikes. That’s a whole lotta planning. Good thing I’m a planning-kind-of-girl.
And laundry is definitely on the To-Do List. In fact, it is one of the items I write in every morning, usually under the “Supper” Item. Food and laundry seem to be my most important things to take care of on a daily basis.
I only check a load as being completed if it is: washed, dried, folded and put away.
Yes, it is that last one that is the toughie.
But if you’re a person that works well off of a to-do list, try this method. It gives you such a sense of completion when you can check one of those little boxes off!
