I usually save all of my cleaning and organizing for weekdays. Weekends are my down time and also things just don't stay clean. I just have to live with some mess, although it's really hard! I also have a good problem: my husband loves to do cooking projects in the kitchen. Last week he picked 700 lbs of pears! The other day he started his pear projects. This makes for a very messy kitchen! But we will have dried pears, pear juice, canned pears, pear sauce and pear fruit leather. I can live with a messy kitchen for a few days!
So I'm changing my strategy because no matter how much I try to get the kitchen where I want it to be, it gets completely dismantled. So I will do low maintenance in that room for now. However, every time I walk into my bedroom "sanctuary" I want to crawl through the roof. It's a disaster. So I'm going to focus on that room for awhile. Whew, my perfection tendencies have me in a tizzy. I know that if I get one room clean I can work on other areas.
