Here are Indiana's steps to a well-maintained Outdoors, from February 24, 2009
As we continue to maintain our homes, the key is maintaining our homes through out the year instead of a full deep cleaning once or twice a year.
Adjust the outdoors to fit your home.
Not all the things listed need to be done this round. Some may be done daily, weekly, monthly, every 3 or 6 months or yearly. Look at each area with fresh eyes to see what should be done this round.
As you do outside wash, rake, trim, pull, pick up and tidy outdoors.
Repairs – either repair or put on a list for the future
Buy – replacements or something new if needed
Declutter – kitchen (next focus area) and post accomplishments in Harriet’s declutter thread. This is a great opportunity and will make maintaining the closets easier.
Remember not all the things listed need to be done this round. Some may be done daily, weekly, monthly, every 3 or 6 months or yearly. Use the list as a guide.
