If you have seen my PM schedule, you will notice I have three chunks of timed chores listed...10 minutes on the kitchen, school room, and my secret sins. Instead of these chunks of time, I am going to try a checklist. This is what my maintenance man hubby uses at work. Hospitals have begun using checklists for surgeries and other tasks. Checklist improve efficiency, prevent overlooked items, and save time. These improvements are exactly what my PM schedule needs. So here are my checklists:
Make sure the dishwasher has been unloaded
Load the dishwasher
Clean off the counters
Clean off the counters after lunch
Clean off the counters after supper
Hand wash any dishes that won't go in the dishwasher
Run the dishwasher
Sweep the floor
Have my student pick up all school books and supplies before releasing her for the day
Clean off my desk
Pick up the floor
Vacuum the floor...yes, daily.
Clean the board
Friday....under a piece of furniture...maybe more than one
I hope this works better. We will see.
