Use this handy checklist to help facilitate the weekly drudgery of house cleaning. By tackling tasks on a regular basis, you'll keep work to a minimum and give yourself more time to do the things you love (like not cleaning!) You should also try handing parts or all of this checklist to family members; by delegating tasks and a schedule, everyone is aware of what needs to be done, and the work will not only get done faster but probably better.
