Holiday Grand Plan - Week Three

>> Sunday, September 13, 2009

This post was actually written and posted on Septemeber 27,2009. I wanted to keep the information in order for those who are following along with the plan though.

This week is week three of the Holiday Grand Plan.  According to the HGP site the focus is entry/foyer week.  Well, I do my cleaning according to FlyLady zones, so this week for me is the Bathroom & my daughter's room.

My Goals For This Week:

*Holiday Prep*

  1. Make one batch of Holiday Goodies.
  2. Make one extra meal for freezer again labeled HOLIDAY MEAL.
  3. Buy two canned food items from Menus (get 2 of each item, one to use and one to donate to food drive).
  4. Keep 2 boxes in a pantry area or storage place to put these in so that they are not used in everyday cooking - make sure to label them so that when food drives start your holiday supply stays intact and the food drive gets the food purchased for it.
  5. Buy all supplies for homemade gifts. Package each project with directions and other information in zipper food storage bag and place in a basket or box in craft/sewing area.
  6. Buy film, camera batteries, blank videotapes. Hide them; write yourself a note.
  7. Plan Thanksgiving dinner using the holiday menu planner (our Thanksgiving is October 12)

*Chores - FlyLady zone 3, for me that is the bathroom & my daughter's room*

      1. Bathroom
          - Wash rug, linens & shower curtain
          - Wash walls
          - Dust vents & fan
          - Wash light fixtures
          - Clean window, windowsill & screen
          - Scrub tub, toilet, sink & counter
          - Clean & organize cabinets and drawers
          - Empty & wash trash can
          - Sweep & mop floor

      2. Bean's Bedroom
          - Wash walls
          - Wash curtains & blinds
          - Wash light fixtures
          - Clean windows, windowsills & screen
          - Wash bedding & pillows
          - Vacuum & flip mattress
          - Straighten drawers & closet
          - Dust furniture
          - Clean under bed
          - Sweep & mop floor
    So since this is being posted at a later date, I'll tell you not much of this was actually accomplished.  Been dealing with some health issues that basically stopped me in my tracks for a few weeks.  More on that in another post though.  I'm a little stressed about how far behind I am in the holiday prep part of things, but really not worried about the cleaning part.  Since I follow (try to anyhow) FlyLady zones I know those zones will be repeated next month & hopefully I'll be up for getting more done.
