My Cleaning Schedule:
Wednesday: Dust & Vacuum Downstairs
Thursday: Kitchen & Floors
Friday: Catch Up
Saturday: Catch Up/Errands/Family Time
Sunday: Family Day
When a room gets done, it gets done top to bottom.
I don't designate one specific day for laundry, I seem to do a load daily or get it done every couple days.
Putting Laundry Away.
Windows as often as necessary. We have lots of little fingerprints in this house!
If you have little ones like I do, make a deal with your partner. They get 1 hour then you get 1 hour and keep swapping back and forth until you get your cleaning done.
If your kiddos are old enough, get them to pitch in!
Set a timer for yourself. 15 minutes, 20 minutes....whatever gets done, gets done.
Keep supplies in a convenient container for easy transport.
Never leave a room empty handed.
Do a little something everyday.
Post your schedule where you can see it. OR try a cleaning binder with calendars and checklists for deep cleaning, yearly and seasonal cleaning. (I do love my binders!)
Trying to let go and not feel like your house has to be "perfect"! Get done what you can and remember your house is lived in. It's not a museum. Don't put too much pressure on yourself, you will be happier for it! (Sound familiar Nicole?)
See what works best for you! You can always "tweak" your schedule!
Do you have a cleaning routine? What is it? What works best for you?
