Cleaning Schedule

If you were to tell me a few years ago that a cleaning schedule (or any schedule for that matter) would increase my peace of mind, I would’ve probably laughed and rolled my eyes. A cleaning schedule? Nah get outta here. Listen I'm not saying not having a schedule is bad. It worked for me for a long time. When I first became a mom we had a small two bedroom apartment and long story simplified as time grew on so did our family and home size. We currently own a four bedroom + two bath home, two messy toddlers and two large dogs. I quickly became overwhelmed. I would try to clean throughout the day. Which let face it... that was pointless because the house was still a mess at the end of the day. All I really was doing was cleaning the same mess over and over. I always felt like it wasn’t clean enough and I was always behind, especially on laundry. I love a clean neat home (yep! Even with toddlers) so for me this became a problem I needed to figure out. The answer? A cleaning schedule.


So what do my days look like? Wellll I promise I still have a social life, wellll kind of? Anyway here’s my cleaning schedule 

Everyday we play hard.

Every night.

We pick up (yep! My toddlers help), we clean up the kitchen, wipe down kitchen counter tops, dishes, take out trash and run my robot vacuum. (We own the iLife you can find one on my Amazon Store). There is nothing better than waking up to a clean kitchen.

Monday: Dust. Clean Bathrooms. Mop.

Wednesday: Laundry.
Friday: Weekly groceries - Clean out fridge.

Once a month.

I pick either the last Monday or Wednesday to do a deep clean. This is the time we get down to the nitty gritty. I deep clean the kitchen by wiping down cabinets, cleaning out the microwave and checking my pantry from expired items. I also wipe down all doorknobs and baseboards and disinfect the garbage can, yuck!

Once a season.
Every season change is the perfect opportunity to sort through closets, clean them out donate items you know longer use.Go through your children's toys to do the same. I also like to take down my curtains to wash and air them out. Wash throw pillows and deep clean the couch.

This may seem surprisingly easy and that’s because IT IS. Like, seriously easy. I do what my chore is on the scheduled day and that is it. My home hasn’t looked cleaner and I have taken the anxiety away of feeling like I haven’t done anything.
