Freebie Download – A cleaning schedule template to organize your chores
Housework is something that, ideally, you shouldn’t have to spend a great amount of time thinking about or doing, and getting your cleaning on a schedule helps make this happen. Where most people go wrong is letting tasks accumulate, resulting in one big binge-cleaning session that leaves them stressed and tired. Having dedicated chores to do on each day means you spend much less time each day cleaning, and you know exactly what you need to do, so you are never cleaning aimlessly or pointlessly.
The default information in the cleaning schedule is what I use personally, but I am providing it in Microsoft Word format so that you may edit it to your needs! These things cover my entire home and I really spend a negligible amount of time each day cleaning (30 minutes on a couple of days, much less on other days). Every now and then you need to deviate from the schedule, and that’s okay. For example, I made bread and coated the entire kitchen with flour – do I wait until Monday to clean it? Of course not. I would clean the kitchen and then clean it again on Monday.
The schedule does not include some things that are a given daily task – like doing dishes. I do dishes first thing every morning, followed by the remainder of the chores. I used to clean basically one day a week, which would take a couple of hours because I would often find myself walking around the house unsure of what to do next.
For monthly tasks, it is helpful to write the date that it was last done on the schedule.
Adding this little bit of organization to your daily tasks can save you so much time and stress! It’s great for children and spouses also – because when mom feels like taking a day off, all you have to do is point to the all-important schedule.
