Weekly Cleaning Schedule

Do your stress levels rise when your house is a mess? Personally, I hate chaos in my home (I am learning to adjust with two little boys!) and I feel much more relaxed and happy when my house is in order. Is my home always spotless? Hahahahahahah <– Sorry, I got a good laugh out of the question. My house is definitely not spotless, but I do like to make sure I am keeping up with the mess with a quality cleaning schedule.

Now that I’m home full-time caring for my two little nuggets, I’ve put together a cleaning schedule to help keep me feeling sane and in control of the everyday chaos. And yes, the feeling of sanity is all an illusion ;-)

  • Monday: “Mindless Tasks Monday” – Dust + Vacuum
  • Tuesday: “Toilet Tuesday” – Clean bathrooms
  • Wednesday: “Windex Wednesday”- Wipe down all kitchen appliances, lanai doors and mirrors
  • Thursday: “Linens Thursday” – Wash sheets and bathroom towels
  • Friday: “Freedom Friday” – Vacuum

Note that laundry (clothing) and kitchen duties (run dishwasher, wipe counters, etc.) are not included on this schedule. Kyle and I have to do those every. single. day. to keep up! My weekly cleaning schedule includes more the “big item” cleaning tasks that I try to avoid. We also have larger “monthly” cleaning tasks like keeping the cupboards organized, sweeping the garage, washing the cars, etc. but I don’t plan on creating a schedule for those items… unless we totally start slacking!

Also, yes, I need to vacuum at least twice per week thanks to our furbaby Mitchell. I don’t know how the dog continues to have hair on his body considering how much is scattered over our floors!

Thankfully, our lawn maintenance is taken care of for us by our HOA so we don’t need to include mowing on our list.

Here’s to attempting to maintain my sanity with two little boys at home, one clean room at a time.

Do you follow a weekly cleaning schedule? If so, what do you clean each day?
