Ok, so here's the deal: when we moved into our current home, the rent came with a monthly professional cleaning included. All I would have to do is keep things tidy, and a gift from the gods would come in once a month and magically make my home clean.
It is a stinkin' dream come true. I never in a million years would have paid for somebody to clean for me, but if it's included? Heck yeah I'll let them.
The first couple of months were great...literally all I did was keep things presentable, and our cleaning gentleman (is that the right name for a man who cleans your house?) did the rest. He was fabulous.
Last month, our landlord gave us the option of taking that option out of the rent. I really (REALLY) had to think about it. It was so incredibly nice, but I just couldn't justify paying somebody to clean the house when I have the capability to do it. So, kind of begrudgingly, we agreed to cancel it.
So, over the past month or so, I've had to adjust to cleaning a new house with a little more space. I think I've mentioned before that this is the biggest home we've ever lived in. We now have a playroom and added space that has to be cleaned, so I've had to revise my cleaning methods a little.
Many of you know that I (kind of religiously) follow a cleaning schedule I put on the blog a couple of years ago. I literally pull this post up every Sunday night to make out my to-do list for the week. That one (along with the original cleaning schedule before it) has been one of my most popular posts ever...it's so great to see that so many people are getting use out of it! It was in need of some revisions though. I've added in a few things over the past year or two, so I thought I'd make a new printable!
