Apparently it’s a rookie home-making mistake to go through life sans custom cleaning schedule. And that’s exactly how I’ve been living.
Say hello to my new little friend, the cleaning schedule!
I started by just brainstorming all the jobs that need doing. Then, when I couldn’t think of any more, I put a “D” next to the ones that need doing daily, a “W” next to the ones to do weekly, and an “M” next to the ones to do monthly. Then I rewrote the list in three columns, and labeled them “Daily,” “Weekly” and “Monthly.” (The “Monthly” list is a whole other post though since I’m pretty sure I accidentally left out most of the things that actually need to be done.)
Here’s what I ended up with:
Tomorrow, when it’s light out, I shall laminate it and stick it on my fridge. And each day, when I’ve completed each task, I shall take great pleasure in marking off each item with a dry-erase marker. Because fewer things give me greater pleasure than marking off things on a list!
Does anybody else have something like this that they use? What does your cleaning schedule look like? (I mean that both literally and what’s on it.) Any tips for keeping your house clean with as little effort as possible?
