Sometimes setting aside the time to clean can be tough, but it’s easier if you plan ahead with this printable cleaning schedule
I am a bit of an organizing junkie. I love to have an organized and clutter-free house. In fact, clutter stresses me out so much that if I haven’t had a chance to keep the house clean, I become a very grumpy person.
That doesn’t necessarily mean that my house is spotless, though. I have been getting busier with my blogs and my personal training so my house cleaning has suffered a bit lately. But, I know that it is much easier to take 30 minutes daily to stay on top of the cleaning than it is to take several hours later on to catch up.
Because life is getting busier, I have noticed that I stay focused and on task better if I have set some deadlines or schedules to follow. I have never been a bi schedule person, but I am finding this to be a necessity these days. To stay on top of my housework I created a cleaning schedule for myself and I want to share it with you!
I have a small house, so my cleaning schedule isn’t too full, but you can print it or save and edit in Adobe or PicMonkey and add your own tasks. I will try this out for a few weeks and then make changes as I need.
Daily tasks that are added to this would include:
- Laundry as needed
- Making beds
- Sweeping the kitchen floor (crumbs galore!)…hey, that rhymed!
But each of these tasks on the list above can easily take less than an hour, and tasks can be spread out throughout the day so you can get things done without spending an entire day cleaning. That also frees up your weekends to do fun family things!
Want a schedule that you can add your own tasks to? Below is the blank PDF template that you can upload to Adobe and add your own text, or you can print it and write in your own schedule. I am working on trying to get the JPEG version on here so people can edit using Picasa or PicMonkey.
