Hey ladies! Today I want to share with you how I’ve managed to keep my house clean for the past month. Like, for real! Something I didn’t think I’d ever be able to say. I’m usually high-fiving myself if the house is clean for a day (or an hour).
Am I right?
But if you’re looking for a plan that will help you keep the mess under control without having to spend 14 hours a day cleaning, you’ve come to the right place.
I’ve got my plan broken down into a list of daily chores, as well as some things that need to get done every day. A lot of times I feel like my house is such a mess that I don’t even know where to start, so having a few things to conquer each day written out on a list has been super helpful.
Daily to-dos: make beds, start laundry, empty dishwasher, spot vacuum, wipe kitchen counters, load dishes throughout day, put away laundry, pick up and put away in the evening
Monday – Vacuum, sweep and mop floors, clean couches, clean out fridge
Tuesday – Wash bedding, bathroom counters and mirrors, clean oven and microwave
Wednesday – Dust, wipe walls and doors, clean windows
Thursday – Clean toilets and tubs, organize and declutter
Friday – spot clean baseboards, clean out pantry
Weekends – daily to-dos, relax!
Super simple, right?
I try to knock out as much of it as I can in the morning. That means making my bed and carrying the laundry basket into the laundry room before I even pour my coffee. Empty the dishwasher while the kids are eating breakfast. Having the visual of a to-do list in front me helps me stay aware of what needs to be done.
But cleaning wouldn’t be any fun without a super cute check list to use, right? There’s not much more satisfying than checking something off a list. So here is a printable you can save and use to help you get your new cleaning schedule going! Print out a few copies, or laminate it and re-use it every week!
