I do live in England, but I've yet to have a visit from the Queen! :-)

An excellent post, Charlene. In general, I think we expect ourselves to keep things way too clean and we certainly add to our own stress. I like this approach.

Another possibility is to do a little bit everyday, but mainly I think this works for the straightening up (putting away that mail on the dining room table, for example). I have empowered my husband to clean anything at all that he thinks is really too dirty - that actually works, since his standard is far higher than mine.

And, a couple of times a year I spring for a couple hours of professional help (often via Groupon or Living Social). I let them CLEAN and then I can keep it picked up better for most of the time.

I love your philosophy! I stress about having a clean house, too, just because for me a clean house means a clean mind. If I'm around a lot of crap, I begin to feel really horrible and can't concentrate on anything but the mess.

I was keeping a cleaning schedule, but now, I just make it a point to do thorough cleanings of all rooms in the house throughout the week when I can, or when I have time. Bathrooms and floors are always cleaned on weekends, but everything else is cleaned throughout the week.
