My house is not always organized, nor is it always picked up, but one of the biggest tips I have for keep a house in order is using a weekly cleaning schedule. A weekly cleaning schedule makes it easy to keep track of what you have done, and what you need to do. It also allows time to get other things done throughout the day by breaking up the household chores throughout the week – it can get so overwhelming when I have to do it all in one day! Another great benefit to the weekly cleaning schedule is that the longer you keep up with it, the easier it becomes, as you are rotating through household chores once a week instead of longer periods of time.
So, this is my schedule. Along with daily housekeeping (sweeping the kitchen, dishes, etc.) items, each day is one large task. Each of the tasks can be done in about 30 minutes which is very do able. Even with the daily chores, there’s no more than 60 minutes of cleaning to be done each day. I, for one, do not like to spend a ton of time cleaning my home – I would much rather be enjoying time with my family!
To make this super easy and helpful, I have created a printable reminder of what needs to be done, and when. You can print this out and check of your chores each day, to keep yourself and your homekeeping routine on track. And stay tuned, I will be adding a daily task checklist as well!
