The first of the month to-do list

The beginning of each new month marks a time when I like to recommit myself to organization.  I am happy to report that I am already finished with my “first of the month” tasks.  They are:

1.  Feed the dog her heart worm pill and apply her K9 Advantix.

2.  Clean out the whirlpool jets in the tub.

3.  File all of my receipts for the previous month.

Not only do I feel like I got a lot done, but it’s making me consider a system for other days of the month, or perhaps tasks for certain days of the week.  For example, I could make Mondays dusting days, and Tuesdays the day when I check all the walls for crayon marks and smudges I can remove with my Magic Eraser.  Wednesdays could be window washing days.  Thursdays could be for vacuuming and mopping.  Fridays could be for cleaning the tubs, toilets and sinks.  Saturdays I could vacuum the dog hair off the furniture.  And Sundays, of course, would be for rest.

I wonder if any of you have ways you organize tasks, household chores or the like in your home that you’d like to share.  I’m always looking for new ways to make life easier, less cluttered and more organized.  Happy August 1st!
