I have a new cleaning schedule based on our new house and our new schedule here. We do have three bedrooms and two baths, but one bedroom is not being used right now.
Mondays- Clean and dust off the master bedroom and
Tuesdays- Wash two huge loads of laundry so there will be no planned cleaning (right now I am teaching a Bible Study on Tuesday night, so this is a very busy day for us)
Wednesdays- Clean both bathrooms very well (this only takes about half the amount of time it used to take me since we have a new house!)
Thursdays- Mop (with the swifter) floors in the mudroom and in the kitchen. Clean both the kitchen and the mud room. This is the day devoted to cleaning out the refrigerator as well which seems to always need cleaning. I also wash
Fridays- Clean and dust the living room
Saturdays- Vacuum the entire house, clean the guest room and clean out
Sundays- No cleaning…way too busy of a day! I might clean out the car on this day if I have any time.
* Note: Some days I do not get the cleaning done during the day, so while Charlie has alone time with Jackson at night, I clean then using a timer so I can stay on track or better yet Charlie helps me clean at night before bed. I have such a wonderful, selfless husband!
If I were you I would try to make your own cleaning schedule out on what days are the busiest for you. You can make out your own schedule by looking at mine and starting with the rooms that you feel are the most important to be clean for health reasons. For me dusting our rooms actually is the most important aspect to clean since we all struggle with allergies - so that is why dusting is on Monday. If you are a mom, you know that it seems like you are always cleaning, loading and unloading the dishwasher etc. I remember the days when the biggest task was making up the bed. Now, sadly, the only time the bed is made up is at night before I go to bed to get the covers all straight…
Additionally, I am giving myself a treat on Saturday if I have tried hard to stick to the cleaning schedule. My treat is that on Saturday, I get to go shopping (not necessarily buying anything) for decorative items for the house. We are slowly turning
I would love to hear about your cleaning schedule!
