I am so excited to finally share this with all of you, my weekly cleaning schedule. This has been on my list of things to write about since I started this blog months ago, but I am just now getting around to actually posting it. Today, I wanted to share my Weekly Cleaning Schedule and in printable form too if you want to keep it handy.
I started following this schedule when I was still working full-time. Spending my entire weekend cleaning, doing laundry, and just catching up had to end. I wanted to be able to spend my weekend with my girls, as I am sure many of you can relate.
So I did what anyone would do these days and I took to Pinterest. There are so many different kinds of cleaning schedules, but you have to do what works best for you and your family. After my research, I took bits and pieces of other schedules and made one that would work for me and my family’s schedule.
Weekly Cleaning Schedule:
-Sweep the floors
-One load of laundry (put it in the wash in the am, in the dryer when I get a chance, and fold before bed)
-Wipe down counters (kitchen and bathrooms)
-Tidy up all rooms
-Vacuum (depending on the kids and the dog this is sometimes a daily chore)
-Bathrooms (floors, shower/tub, sinks, counters, mirrors, rugs, toilets)
-Bedsheets (wash all sheets and remake all beds)
-Dust (whole house)
-Scrub Kitchen Sink and Counters
-Vacuum (whole house)
Big household projects and/or Swing Projects (things that don’t have to be done weekly but still need to be done)
-Wipe down cabinets (inside and out)
As you can see whenbroke down into smaller pieces, cleaning is much more manageable and really doesn’t take that long. I love the fact that by Saturday my whole house is clean and we can spend our weekends as a family.
I would love to hear what cleaning strategies have worked for you. Do you find that getting it all done in a few hours is easier than doing little by little?
Thanks for stopping by.
