Do you ever feel overwhelmed with household chores? I know I am constantly running around cleaning. I like my house to be very clean. I wish I was a little more laidback about it, but I am not. If it is messy, I cannot relax. Sound crazy?
When we added on to our home last year, we added a lot more chores and rooms to clean. Now with another child the chores just get longer. I knew I had to go back to a cleaning schedule. I have done this several times before, so I know it helps. I first wrote down every room in the house and split them up according to a day of the week. Most days have two rooms, but I tried to put a big room with a small room. I also put my normal washing schedule on here. I have done laundry like this for years and it seems to work just fine. I now wash Abigail’s clothes with Andrews. Their clothes are so small and do not make a full load.
I also plan on trying to organize something in one of the rooms each day. Nothing crazy just something. For example, today (Monday) I cleaned the Living Room and Master Bedroom. When I was finished dusting, vacuuming, and tidying up I went through Andrew’s toy basket and moved some toys upstairs to the playroom. Luckily Andrew and Abigail normally take a good 2 hour nap at the same time. We will see how long that last!
Monday: Living Room and Master Bedroom
Tuesday: Bathroom and Powder Room
Wednesday: Kitchen and Dining Room
Thursday: Pantry and Laundry Room
Friday: Upstairs (playroom and bathroom), Andrew and Abigail's Laundry
Saturday: Craft/Office, My Laundry
Sunday: Andrew and Abigail’s Rooms, Wash Towels
How do you clean your house? Do you clean once a week or a little each day?
