Organize Your Life ~ Create A Cleaning Schedule

Do you struggle to keep the house consistently clean and organized? One of my personal goals has been to create a cleaning schedule and stick with it! With a schedule or routine it’s easier to stay on top of cleaning and keeping your house tidy on a daily basis, I have put together a monthly list as well, to maintain deep cleaning and organizing throughout the year… I also prefer to clean, based on the chore I’m doing. If I am going to pull out the mop and bucket, I would rather mop all floors that day. This is the same for bathrooms. I have my bathroom cleaning supplies out, I am going to clean them all the same day, it saves time & energy. 

This schedule below has been working for my family. Please feel free to modify the schedule to work for your household. Happy Cleaning!

    This is so helpful! I have sturggled with getting a routine together, especially because my babies are small and it just never seems to end. I like the idea of breaking it up into different days instead of feeling like it all has to be done in one day, everyday. Takes a lot of pressure off. I am definitely using this! Thank you boo ;*

    1. Yes I know the struggle! A cleaning routine definetly makes keeping up with housework less overwhelming. Hope it helps!

    I have a.d.d. so it’s so hard sometimes to get it together and get chores done. I have been picking one or two days a week and I just go full blast and clean constantly but it wipes me out. I really need to create a cleaning schedule like this one. I also want to do the tasks as early as possible in the day to get them out of the way.

    1. I hope creating and following a schedule will help you stay focused with a clean house without wiping you out! Thank you for reading!

    An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a colleague who was talking about doing something like this at home.
    And she actually bought me lunch simply because I discovered it for her…

    But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk cleaning schedules here on your blog.
