My husband found this article online http://unclutterer.com/2007/12/10/stop-spending-your-weekends-cleaning-your-home/, and we started doing this...we have a schedule with one room assigned per day. We spend 30 mins each evening on the assigned room. It's amazing how much easier cleaning has become...and how nice our place looks!
Great idea, Lara! As for myself, it's like pulling teeth when I ask my husband to simply put his dirty dishes in the sink and not leave them lying around! So he does the cooking (with lots of gusto and ingredients flying around, of course), and I do the cleaning. The idea of splitting cleaning duties equally is appealing to me, but what to do when one of you is kind of inept at it?
