From holidays with a house full of family and friends to the every day tidy that we all do (I do multiple times a day!) these House Cleaning Schedule Tips just might make life easier…
House Cleaning Schedule Tips
Divide chores into daily, weekly, monthly housecleaning jobs
Full confession: my home is in a constant state of disorganization (I have 3 kids remember) so I am not a role model for a spotless home. However, there is a difference between clean and spotless. I keep on top of the housecleaning as best I can by dividing the housecleaning chores.
Daily: quick vacuum of main living areas, wipe dining room table, kitchen surfaces, fill/unload dishwasher, tidy living room, tidy main bathroom.
Weekly: laundry, clean bathroom, clean kitchen, vacuum bedrooms, tidy toys, clear clutter.
Monthly: dusting, cupboard organization, clean out fridge, closet organization, empty school backpacks, wash school lunchboxes.
Divide chores amongst family
My big kids are in charge of keep their rooms clean. My son is in charge of hanging up his jacket, putting his shoes and backpack in their respective spots. I’m in charge of bathrooms, kitchen and laundry (until I find the laundry fairy – and when I do he/she will magically take care of that chore for us).
Do short bursts of housecleaning
Try to make housecleaning fun (play music)
Music is a MUST for housecleaning. The right music can improve your energy and motivation.
