Here's my Summer Cleaning Schedule.
MONDAY - Dust and vacuum
TUESDAY - Mop
WEDNESDAY - Deep clean the kitchen
THURSDAY - Clean the bathrooms
FRIDAY - Change the sheets
Do you cook and/or clean differently during the summer months? Do you do more cleaning, or less? Do you find you cook more or less in the summer?
I change my cooking and cleaning schedules a bit in the summer partly because we are doing less school and partly because I just like changing things up. I still prepare three meals a day for my busy household during the summer but we eat a lot of salads and use the grill a lot more. My crock-pot gets a workout year 'round. I love it during the fall and winter months for hearty soups and stews and chili. I love it just as much in the spring and summer months because it helps keep the kitchen cool. Right now I've got Chicken Tortilla Soup cooking in my crock-pot and boy does the house smell good! It only takes a few minutes to load up your crock-pot and then you can spend your day doing other things while dinner simmers. When it's time to eat...voila! Dinner is served! :)
I try to do a little bit of extra cleaning during the summer simply because I have a little more time. We aren't doing full time school so I have a few extra hours to do some scrubbing, or decluttering, or whatever. Our school year cleaning is more upkeep and when summertime comes I can really get into some deep cleaning. With eight people living in and sharing a home there is always plenty of cleaning to do.
So...what about you? How is your schedule different during the summer?
