Re: Home-keeping Schedules
 
I'm so bad at housekeeping; I have a loose schedule this summer that I'm finally getting towards following. It's not extensive; I'm operating under the "it's better to do SOMETHING than nothing" mindset. But I've made major strides over the past 3 months and I'm really pleased!

Every day: stay on top of dishes and laundry, general pick up, wipe off the table and sweep - ideally after every meal but realistically at least once a day. I've come to appreciate making our bed. Garden work while the kids play in the yard. And quick wipe the bathroom surfaces (we only have one bathroom so it gets dirty fast).

Monday: Kitchen
Tuesday: Change and wash sheets and towels; make grocery list
Wednesday: Errands and clean out car
Thursday: Dust (ha! rarely happens) and Declutter
Friday: Floors - vacuum and mop
Saturday: Yard work, family errands
Sunday: Get head on straight for another week!

Things like blinds, baseboards, cabinet doors, etc get done when they catch my attention... which doesn't happen all that often. That will get added to my rotation eventually. Right now I've just got to get the habit of doing some cleaning every single day.

This is so helpful!! I've been trying so hard to find a good cleaning schedule! Now how do you find motivation?
