    I so understand that dilemma, Katrina! I try to do the minimum in the summer (June - August in my neck of the woods). We spend more time outside so I don't think about cleaning as much. That's why I need the HGP in September! :oops:

    I was following a cleaning/decluttering plan from a blog that I follow. It is just too hot here at the moment, still hovering around 100 degrees daily. I am going to wait for a few more weeks and start the first week of March. March 1st is the beginning of Autumn for us so should be cooler.
    Have altered my planner to show the new plans.

    I'm just keeping up with basics right now. Since there's been more activity here that I expected and things are getting done at a slower pace.
