Making Your Home a Haven -- without stressing yourself out

Have you noticed my lack of Making Your Home a Haven posts? I slacked off, but this tidy business is taking a lot longer than it should. It's very hard to try to get it all done in the time frame I have.

Since I generally only have time to do major cleaning on the weekends (trust me, we need more than a pick-me-up), I've decided to stretch out making my home a haven by focusing on one task per week rather than by day.

In staying with the tidy theme, here's my plan for the week:
** Laundry Room -- pick up and wipe down
** Kitchen -- take extra canning supplies/dishes to garage. Move pots and pans. Wipe down interior of fridge. Organize canned goods.
** Living Room -- clean off desk and bookcase. Find a new home for displaced school books.
** Kids' Rooms -- get rid of excess toys to donate. Organize remainder. Vacuum well.
** Mom/Dad's Room -- get rid of extra junk!
** Misc. -- laundry caught up and put away. Put garage stuff in the garage.

I'll keep you updated on what I get done through the week. Feel free to let us know what you're doing/where you stand. After all, we're all in this together! =)

I'm loving the task per week rather than per day, less stressful!
