Our current thread will always be FIRST in the line-up of topics in the forum, so it's easy to find and chat in current time! Our first round's calendar is in this post. The locked sticky threads about Focus Cleaning are just below, including the full 2019 Focus Cleaning Calendar for planning.
A consistently clean home is within reach! It's not that we need to clean everything suddenly it's just that we need to clean some consistently throughout the year we know that. Focus gives us one already-complete plan for a rotation to keep us on track and keep each lovely area from neglect. We don't have to re-invent the wheel, just roll along with the one we have at the ready, a week at a time.
Here's a space to chat about our SECOND rounds through our homes, which will be from Monday, March 18 through the week of Monday, May 27. Eleven rooms/areas for eleven weeks. Change the room or area names around to suit your home, record them in personal record-keeping if you want, in whatever form you'd like, and let's go through the house once!
If you are on a different plan for cleaning, please chat with us anyway, okay? We'd love to hear what you are doing through these months. To find some reminders and tips about rooms, check out the locked thread titled, The Eleven Focus areas and their How-To-Clean Notes. The contents listing there is clickable and you'll go right to the room you click.

Reassessing our entry and finding we've allowed the view of the dining area to go downhill. Decluttering has helped. Now cleaning and rethinking. My "next up" is swiffering high and low. Need to give attention to the front door itself and window panes.
Since it's closet week, I'm continuing to bring bedroom into the mix with master closet this week. Continuing deep-clean there as well, hoping this second round will be the charm and maybe it can all get done.
