Keeping it clean... update

You may think that I have forgotten about my cleaning regimen, but I haven't. There has been so many other things I have wanted to write about, and I figured that my previous articles gave you a good sense of my cleaning styles, so I have kept record of my cleaning times. I am hoping that if you feel discouraged about cleaning using this method, knowing that I am still trying to continue (even though some of my times are a little over the 20 minute target) and finish the month. Wether or not I repeat this method for month two, well... the jury is out.

Task #1 Time: 36:05
- Surface clean living room and kitchen (pick up stray items, dust, sweep, vacuum)
Task #2 Time: 23:36 -
Clean bathrooms (toilets, showers, floors, walls, mirrors)
Task #3 Time: 26:52 -
Surface clean bedrooms (put away toys, clothes, dust)
Task #4 Time: 19:25 -
Surface clean "extra" rooms (basement, office, play room)

Task #5 Time: 15:32 - Surface clean living room and kitchen - Look how much time was cut off, I just did this 4 days ago!
Task #6 Time: 20:16 - Clean bathrooms - Not bad for 3 bathrooms
Task #7 Time: 27:35 -
Clean all interior windows - I have tons of windows it feels. 4 small square window, 7 standard large windows, one large oddly shaped window, and french doors. It was a bit teadious, but they were dirtier than I expected, and I'm glad I did it.
Task #8 Time: 40:23 -
Sweep and vacuum all floors in the house - I have 3 flights of stairs, and 3 stories that have to be swept or vacuumed... I'm tired.
Task #9 Time: 21:52 -
Surface clean bedrooms
Task #10 Time: 14:56 -
Deep clean living room (mirrors, baseboards, dust artwork) - Pretty much just dusting molding, and a few paintings.

Task #11 Time: 21:47 - Clean bathrooms - How do they get dirty so fast? I have kept the bathrooms picked up, but it still needed all the cleaning, and I only did this 5 days ago.
Task #12 Time: 18:58 - Clean out closets (hang up clothes, mittens, jackets, hats) - wow, this needs to be a weekend project. I was able to get everything done at a satisfactory level, but I'd really love to gut the closets and sell a bunch of stuff.

Task #13 Time: 14:28 - Surface clean "extra" rooms - a little random paper mess in the office, then the rest of the time was tidying up the garage/basement, until I felt that any more would be deep cleaning/organizing.
Task #14 Time: 38:52 - Deep clean bedrooms (organize drawers, check under bed, tidy closet, dust artwork, fans, lights, mop) - I was fine until it came to organizing the drawers. I think its time to get rid of some socks and undies....
Task #15 Time: 12:56 -
Surface clean living room and kitchen

15 Tasks left, it is definitely getting to be a chore, but it is helping me get more organized, and learn more cleaning tricks which I will use in my own cleaning system that I will publish once I have completed this one.
