Each Thursday clean your floors. The basic idea is having a time each week to deal with tasks. This does not mean you cannot do these things at other times. You can and should clean out your car or your purse, regularly, but on Friday it becomes a focus. If your floors need attention, give them attention. Wipe up spills as they occur. If you are having a gathering at your home on a day other than Thursday and you feel your floors need attention, give them attention. BUT on Thursday take a few minutes to sweep and mop them. What works for you? What will help you keep your floors clean? Do you have doormats by each of your doors? If you keep much of the dirt out, you are ahead in the battle. Place a mat outside each door into your home and a mat inside each door into your home. Shake out those mats regularly.
