does this look do-able, not too overwhelming, yet has all components? did i miss anything big?
just so you know: 1st floor - spare bedroom (dh uses this for his travel gear as well - has plans to move all his clothes down there :shrug ), laundry, and a play area we use occassionally as well as a storage area
2nd floor - kitchen, dining area, living room, a desk and lots o' toys
3rd floor - 2 bedrooms, 1 storage area/craft room (not usable), and 2 full baths

thanks for looking - and for any suggestions - btw i am a messy in dire need of organizational help

That looks very do able! I created a similar schedule 3 weeks ago. As a complete messy, it was hard at first, but I really am noticing the difference. Even Dh is recognizing all the hard work.

looks good to me. I need to actually follow mine, but I have been so overwhelmingly tired that I can't make myself do more than the bare minimum at the moment. :bag

Very good! May I make one suggestion? With all my "weekly", "monthly", and "semi-annually" stuff, I assign a day so it doesn't get overlooked. For example, I wash comforters on the 1st Thursday on each month, and I wash curtains in June and December. Good luck!

I'm impressed. I like the details that you included. You've given me some good ideas to improve my schedule.

:yes i know i need to do that in order to not forget/procrastinate/miss those jobs
just not sure where/how i'm going to do it yet :think i really would like to do a binder - but we have no horizontal space (counter space) - i really want to get a bookshelf (or something) for storage in our dining area for craft stuff - and if there are shelves i would be thrilled! then i could have a home for my binders and get to work on this one... :scratch

Just wanted to add that the weekly stuff will eventually become habit. At that point, you can just write "clean kitchen" and you know all that it entails, rather than having a long list, which might seem daunting sometimes :yes I like to revise my chore list every six months or so, to make changes like that or to add/remove things as needed :yes Don't think it's an unchangeable document!

Good job! I think it is very doable!

I made a homekeeping binder a while back, and it is my new years resolution (well, one of them) to re-do it (since we moved) and stick to it all! I am SO EXCITED! I do so much better overall when I am organized like that!
