Just wondering if anyone uses the JM house cleaning schedule thing?

I just checked it out and unfortunately I would have to modify it heavily due to work and school. I find a lot of that stuff is made for people who don't work full time (which is just fine, I just can't use them 'as is' then). I've had some good ones through work that are checklists for weekly/monthly checklists. I haven't really used them but given them to clients to use LOL...

The daily habits thing reminds me of the fly lady and if I had motivation I would TOTALLY follow her program.

Thank you Kellarazzi for my siggie!!

I love it! I've used it before and it was wonderful to have a plan in place!

I happily Breastfed Alba for 5 1/2 months!!!!

Below is my weightloss ticker. This is not for the pregnancy weight to come off as it has pretty much all came off. The rest of it is just what I've been wanting to loose for a while now to get back to my healthier weight!

I used it as an example to make my own. I divided my house into 7 sections and came up with a list of things to do in each section and assigned each section a day of the week. (ex: Sunday I do bedrooms - change bedding, quick dust, pick up floor/tidy up, and vacuum) I typed up and printed out a checklist page for each day of the week and put them in page protectors. I use a dry erase marker to mark off the chores as I get them done and then can erase them to reuse the sheet. It has helped me keep the house a lot cleaner!

Haven't seen this until now. When I get out of the hospital I am going to LIVE by this! This seems like a GREAT way to keep up with everything.

I've always used FlyLady when I want to get serious about cleaning the house.

IMO Flylady is sooooo much more stressful than the JM cleaning plan. I've done both and I actually stick with the JM plan a lot better... I think because there are days for catch up in every week, and I need that with the kids. I joined the JM cleaning group (link in my siggie) and it helps to have a group of fellow JMers who are working on the same thing.

No I dont use it. Pretty much until starting having issues with this pregnancy I dusted, swept, moped and vaccumed everyday. cleaned counters, all sinks and did dishes and laundry every day. Cleaned tub and shower and changed all bedding, and vaccumed mattresses once a week. Oiled wood furniture once a week. Cleaned out fridge and kitchen cupboards once a week. cleaned any wall marks as soon as I saw them. kept the dressers and closets organized any time I put anything away. Steam clean carpets, all furniture and mattresses 4 times a year - and flip mattress once it dries.

Unfortunately I have not been able to clean this good latley so I have a ton of it to do.
