Gettin' Organised :: This Week's Detailed Cleaning

Once you get your house broken down into manageable chunks of square footage, you'll need to come up with a detailed cleaning list. These will include the tasks to be accomplished within the area. Make them as detailed as you like. Or not. It's a fine line in our house, because if i have to read too much detail about how i prefer to do things, i'll start chewing on tin foil and develop something that resembles Tourette syndrome. However, if i want the rest of my family to be able to look at the list and contemplate what they could help with, i want it to be detailed enough for them to know what cleaning supplies they'll need or else chances are they won't do it, eh? :)

This is what our list looks like this week.
