Most cleaning schedules out there assume I have the same days and rooms and time they have. Nope, nope, nope. A cleaning schedule is personal to you, to your home, and to your family. I have a ceiling fan in some rooms. Do you? I have two bathrooms but you may have one or three. I have a glass shelf in my kitchen that needs to be cleaned weekly in order for me to remain sane. You may not have the same
You can download and print an empty cleaning schedule that you can fill out on your own. You know best what needs to happen in your home and what needs to be cleaned on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. That's how I've arranged this cleaning chart. But if you want to peek into my world and see what I've decided for Lewisville, I'll include my personal chart also...for you to have as a template of course.
Some of you like to clean a little each day- the kitchen on one day, the bathrooms on another, and so on. I personally like to do my laundry and bathrooms on Mondays, but the rest of the house gets cleaned on Saturday or Thursday or whatever day works best with our schedule for the week. Some of you like to clean the entire house on one day. I used to do that too when the kids were younger. We each have seasons where some things works, then recognize later on that those things need to change.
This cleaning chart is designed to help you in whatever season you are in. If you're a once in a while cleaner or an everyday cleaner, this chart can help you out.
Ok, with that said, here are a few things we do everyday in Lewisville.
- Make my bed. Kids- not so much.
- Dishes and clean the kitchen every night. This is my one thing I like to have clean every night and here's a post about my routine explaining why?
- Kids must pick up their stuff in the family room and around the house before bed. My kids are older and if we find any of their things out in the morning, we have consequences like no computer or phone for the day. Trust me. This has been the BEST thing we've done to keep the clutter down.
That's about it. Work what you can every day with the time you have, but make a routine out of it. That's how it started with making my bed. Though I wanted a clean room with the bed made, I never had the time. Then I realized I just had to do it everyday until it was second nature for me. The bed is the biggest piece of furniture in your room, so making it will at least make your room look clean. It's the first thing I do in the morning.
