Having a household planner will help with housekeeping from getting away from you. If you're like me, I lose track of the last time I cleaned under the oven, or vacummed under the couch. Using a household planner will easily track and evaluate the different aspects of home cleaning.
Using these 3 sites you can come up with a personalized blend of ideas that work best for you: http://www.fly.com/, http://www.organizedhome.com/, and http://www.simplemom.net/. For supplies you'll need a 3 ring binder, divider tabs and some paper. To keep things simple start with these 5 dividers -Calendars, Contacts, Cleaning, Cooking, and Planning. There are many other options, so go ahead and personalized it to fit your family. The basic idea of the binder is that if you were to get sick or go on vacation, anyone could step in and run your household using the planner.
Calendar - no mystery here. Keep a basic weekly plan and monthly pages for the upcoming year, a running to-do list, as well as a master list of important dats that recur yearly.
Contacts - A telephone list of important and frequently called numbers, calling lists for church, clubs, and sports teams, and a printout of your Christmas card mailing address list.
Cleaning - Your daily routines, your child's daily routines. A floor plan of you cleaning zones, as well as a detailed cleaning lists for each zone. Maybe the products you use as well.
Cooking - Keep at least a one-week meal plan, food storage investnory, list of healthy snacks, lunchbox ideas, and preprinted grocery lists.
Planning - Have a ten-year family timeline. For example, your class schedule plan to finish your bachelors degree, and notes on any projects you are working on or planning to work on, such as Christmas or vacation planning.
The binder would be a good place to keep an envelope in the back for receipts, just stuff them all in and sort them once a month or so.
