Vintage Homeaking: Trixie Style



I was scrolling one day last week discussing with my man about how one didn't need to go to the gym or fitness club because the regular day of chores would be workout enough. I know already that when I do certain household tasks I am worn out at the end of the day, and I don't get worn out too often.

Now that I am refocusing my energy towards cleaning, moving and being a true retro housewife, I wanted to updated my cleaning list. For years I have used Fly Lady Routines and for the most part they work for me. I of course, had to adjust a few here or there and ended up slowly moving away from ALL the tasks and sticking with ones that really speak to me, like Always Shine Your Sink, and Put Shoes on Everyday etc. Eventually I wandered off to www.the goodwife.com Houe chores list and have mostly used that for the past few months. However, it still wasn't cutting it, but I just made a sticky note list and worked off off both lists.

Until this weekend. In looking for these retro chores for a good workout, I  instead found some great sites I want to share with you....

The one I have downloaded and am using now is this one....

This one for my daily http://www.newbienesters.com/2013/09/a-1950s-housewife-daily-cleaning-list.html

This one for weekly for each day's tasks http://www.newbienesters.com/2014/11/a-1950s-housewife-weekly-cleaning-list.html


Aside from the "put the kids to be" or there NOT being something on there for pets, I real;y like these so far. I have only done Sat, Sun, Mon and Tues so far but I must say it really has helped me be more organized and like my house is in order.


At least until I make my OWN Cleaning routines. Trixie Tasks for Retro Living anyone?

Have a Fabulous day! Enjoy the links and tasks.
