Building Blocks

I have been reading ahead on the baby steps, and I am noticing that they are very teeny tiny baby steps. People that are completely enrolled in the program will be getting continuing and ongoing emails and reminders to help them keep going, but those of us doing the modified version, we need to do a little bit of foundation building here.

One of the things we need to start thinking about is how to divide our living space into zones. The official program has 5 zones:
  1. The Entrance, Front Porch and Dining Room
  2. The Kitchen
  3. The Bathroom + 1 extra Room
  4. The Master Bedroom
  5. The Living Room
My living space is divided more like this:
  1. Living/Dining
  2. Kitchen
  3. Master
  4. Office + Guest Bath

The idea behind zone cleaning is that you don't have to clean everything at the same time and you can spread it out over the whole week, month, or year. Within each zone there are "missions" - things that you need to do once a month, once a quarter, twice a year, and once a year.

So I guess first things first, everyone should start mentally dividing their living space into 4-5 zones.
