Weekly Home Keeping Habits Made SIMPLE

Weekly Home Keeping Habits Made SIMPLE are what you schedule into your day after time is allotted for your 9 Daily Habits. Each day has a designated weekly habit. It is best to follow how they are set up as there is a flow to them allowing less time to take to do. A great time to do Weekly Habits is during the time Habit 4 – Load Of Laundry is going. That is when I found it to be the easiest. Some of the weekly habits take a few minutes where others there are multiple weekly habits on a specific day that will take more. But first…

Weekly Home Mambo

Begin by doing the 9 Daily Habits and then add Weekly Home Mambo Made SIMPLE once a week. In no time your home will be company ready. Remember at Marilyn’s Way this is the goal. Once you are comfortable with these, add the weekly habits made SIMPLE. The rest will follow.  If you are just beginning and know company is coming there is a crisis clean road map in 9 easy steps specific for this situation.
Once you get comfortable with the above, the real decluttering can begin. Remember, your clutter didn’t show up in a week and it won’t be gone in a day. More on this in an upcoming post. When I began to take this approach I became more content with myself.

What Are They?

The Weekly Habits Made SIMPLE are meant to allow your week to flow from one day to the next. They have been set up in this order building upon your week to come full circle. The following is the correct order to follow. You can chose what day to start the order. (The ‘names’ of the days are ‘dance themed’. I like to put some fun in my Mambo and music gets it done.)

Monday Merengue Planning Day

It is time to set up your week. What day will you be Doo Wopping Errand Day? Bills to pay, calls to make, cards to send, projects to work on. The great thing is it can be as little as 5 minutes. Grab yourself a cuppa, set the timer for 5 minutes and plan out your week. You are so worth it! While you are at it, schedule some Me Time too!

Tuesday Freestyle Day

Today is the day to finish up things that may not have got done yesterday. Maybe you want to do the Weekly Home Mambo all in one day. Today would be a day to do it. It is also a great day to have a lunch date with a friend. Marilyn’s Way believes there should be one day a week that is flexible for all the mini crisis that are part of your life. Having a day to Freestyle what you want for your day is critical in staying consistent with any system.

Wednesday Anti Dilly Dally Day

Wednesday Anti Dilly Dally Day
Anti Dilly Dally Day is about going over your plan from Monday’s ‘Merengue Planning Day’ and make sure everything that has been scheduled get done. It is the middle of the week and a great time to finish the week off great. What have you been putting off that needs to get done? It is based on Few like to do home keeping, not even me! Having said that and knowing the result of not doing it is chaos, I have learned to do it anyway. I am done living in chaos.
The basis of Marilyn’s Way Home Keeping Made SIMPLE is about Eating The Frogs First. What are the frogs? Anything pertaining to home keeping that results in a ‘Company Ready’ home. Brian Tracy wrote a book called  Eat That Frog! 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time
Procrastination is ‘real’ in home keeping. What have you been putting off that needs to get done?
Part of Anti Dilly Dally Day is Refrigerator Boogie and Menu Planning so Eat Those Frogs Today! There is a very good reason too. Why? Because Thursday is ‘Doo Wop Errand Day’ and you need a clean fridge and a menu plan before you can go shopping.

Doo Wop Errand Day is when you take time to get your weekly groceries, returns, doctor appointments, hair appointments. Scheduling a simple route from store to store will cut back the time you spend. Reserve some energy to be able to put the groceries away when you get home. It will be a breeze with a clean fridge and only buying what you need to plan your menus!

Go out and have some fun with your family. Maybe just maybe they will be more inclined to help you with things around the house. We all need FUN in our lives. Even YOU!

Sunday Rejuvenate Your Spirit Day

Sunday Rejuvenate Yourself Day
In order for your weeks to go smooth, you must have a day to rest, reflect, rejuvenate yourself for the coming week. Have you put this in your planner?

Maybe Your Week Doesn’t Begin On Monday, What Then?

Start week off by doing the Merengue Planning first. Then follow each day in the order listed above. This order is done in this specific order for a reason. Each day flows into the next and completes a full circle, your week. Sure you can do them out of order and there will be days that you have to. The downside to this is that many of these weekly habits will take longer to do. Marilyn has put the hard thinking to make this system flow for you. What does this mean? Increase Free Time is just around the corner once these weekly habits become habits!
