It's a good reminder/motivator list,however I would change two things. On the kitchen list,

I would put #5 before # 3 & 4, because it doesn't make sense to go through old food in fridge. and pantry after you already cleaned them, because usually the emptying process makes a mess. Along the same lines,in the bathroom list I would put #10 before #9 because it is easier to clean a medicine chest and storage cabinets after you have already removed old and expired stuff. Other than those things I use to be able to do it all in one day when I had my cleaning business but now with my disabilities it would probably take me 30 days to get it done.Thanks for the list idea.
