The Butler Speaks ~ Starter Cleaning Calendar



Good Morning, and today is the last post from my "The Butler Speaks series". I hope you all have enjoyed reading them. I know I have enjoyed the comments.

For this particular section of the book, Mr. MacPherson talked about a simple "starter" calendar. This calendar ensures that you will deep clean one area of your home per month, instead of doing it all at once a couple of times a year.

You'll notice that there are no tasks scheduled in December. This is a month for us to entertain and enjoy time with our families.

* Deep clean kitchen (post-holiday entertaining)

* Flip mattresses
