A post about cleaning....

I figured since this was a Housewife's blog I should talk about cleaning at some point other than about the cool toys I get. I am not a clean freak by any means. My house is cluttered and to some degree dirty. I don't have a "schedule" on how to clean. Years ago, I tried different schedules and such. I even tried the Fly Lady emails. Which if that works for you, would be a wonderful thing but I couldn't follow. I do tend toward a more fixed idea when school is in session than during the summer like now. I do go through and make the kids help me during the summer and straighten the living room, kitchen and bathroom and I make my bed every day. Also the  vacuuming is a must especially during the summer since my dog sheds more than 7 dogs ought to. During school, I clean for usually a couple hours 2 times a week and the rest of the week is just the straighten kind of day. Laundry is done every day. I don't have a choice on that one. Otherwise I would collapse under that. What are your schedules? What do you do to keep the chaos to a minimum? I would love to hear! I'm always looking for new ways to do things so give me some ideas!
