I think it’s a generally accepted truth that if you clean a little but each day you won’t have to do a mega clean on the weekend. This is a super idea, especially when the weekend rolls around and all you want to do is relax, or if you have unexpected mid-week guests.
I’ve made half-hearted attempts at keeping a cleaning schedule, but life gets the best of me and I can never stick to it for more than a few days. So Im going to blog about it in hopes of sticking to it. Feel free to join in and see if you can make cleaning a daily habit.
I’m gonna baby-step this thing. I made a list on a whiteboard that we have in the kitchen next to the fridge. Hopefully this will help remind me every day the tasks I should try to get done.
(as you can see, my kitchen still needs some picking up!)
For this week, I’m just going to try to make sure I do Monday’s task. If I can do any of the other day’s tasks, then I’ll be a super success. But considering that we vacuumed the entire house on Sunday, I’m not sure that it’ll make sense to vacuum again on Tuesday and Wednesday, but we’ll see.
I might add some tasks to some days if I realize that I’m forgetting something, but I think I’ve got the basics covered. Most of these tasks will take no more than 30 minutes, and spending 30 minutes a day during the week is WAY better than spending a few hours on Saturday and Sunday.
Do you have a cleaning schedule? Any tips or tricks that you use to stick to it? Or are you a weekend cleaner?
