I've been thinking of all the good tips I've gotten from Bonnie McCullough's books over the years. Besides being able to take charge of my week through the Weekly Plan, the Children's Chore Helper was revolutionary for me.
My sister Rachel Anne at Home Sanctuary posted about yet another tip from Bonnie's book: Minimum Maintenance. Rachel goes into great detail so I won't here, but Minimum Maintenance freed me from the slavery that told me I had to clean BEFORE I could straighten.
Bonnie taught me that it is ALWAYS better to straighten everything first, then choose one small area to clean. That way you have not created TWO messes, and you improve your chances of actually finishing something.
Anyway, hop on over there and say hello. And then go straighten something.
Have a great weekend!
