Got a little too busy to post this week. I know that there are over 100 hits on these threads so I will keep going. I'm committed to doing this for a year and I already see a big difference. Not only in my home, but in my stress level. My home is always ready for company (or a few minutes away, ha.ha).

Here is the deep cleaning list. Start out by declutting each day, then work on the deep cleaning list.

Entrance Detailed Cleaning List
Start at the ceiling and work your way down to the floor.

Clean cobwebs
Dust window sills and front door

Put plants in to the shower and give them a good rinse. Let them set there until you are finished.
Dust furniture
Dust baseboards
Straighten the coat closest
Sweep vacuum or mop the floor
Put back the plants. You would hate for DH to walk into a jungle tomorrow morning.
Add your own personal touches to make it more welcoming.
