“Cleans for company”

Posted in Uncategorized by stuffsoup on November 13, 2011

A friend once told me that one of the categories on for “how clean do you keep your house” is “cleans for company”; along with something like “always tidy” and “what’s clean anyway”. I’ve never been able to get that phrase out of my head, I guess, because it was my category. And, when I used to have company more often, my house stayed cleaner. I do like having people over and it is good for me in more than just one way.

When I have no laundry, I feel kind of the same as when I have no new email… nothing is pending and I’m not sure what my next move should be. Maybe I was more of a born firefighter or EMT. It’s kind of weird since there really are so many moves that could be or should be made. I’m just not inspired to pick one… there’s no fire.

I have an idea though. To make it more fun, I think I’ll make slips of paper with some of the bigger projects in the house and put them in a jar or a bucket then pick a “winner” to work on for 15 minutes. If it gets completed, the paper gets tossed. If it doesn’t get done, the paper goes back into the bucket.

How about you? Do you have any projects for your “bucket”?

    I like your chore bucket idea. Fly Lady (google her) suggests spending 15 minutes every day cleaning/tidying, but even if someone were to chose to do that, you’d have to decide which item to tackle. A random generator would help ensure that the yuckier items actually got tackled!
