Housecleaning Schedule

Trying to live the walk and not just talk the talk, I have come to the realization that I am not disciplined in my housekeeping. Yesterday, it was suggested to start becoming more disciplined by beginning with the small things in life and getting organized. So, here it is! I sat down last night and constructed a housecleaning schedule / planner. I started by listing all the household cleaning needs then marked them as daily or weekly. I then organized the list into a chart. Here is my chart, feel free to download it and change it to meet your needs! Do you use a cleaning schedule?

Oh yes, I have a housecleaning schedule. It saves a lot of time and frustration. I just need to get back on the schedule. I also have a laundry schedule. Where I do one or two types of wash every day and fold them immediately and put them away. That save a lot of frustration as well.

I have a very, very basic cleaning schedule that I try to follow every week while pregnant. Yours looks like it might come in very useful after the baby comes (say, about six months after) when I have energy again! I'll have to save it for then.

That's a great idea. The only cleaning schedule I have is if it looks dirty it gets cleaned. Yours is MUCH better!

I definitely need to find a system that I will stick to. I might give this one a try. I'm actually thinking of doing something like the motivational tools we've been using to get our son to help out a little. If he does something good he gets a sticker on his chart and when he fills the chart he gets a dollar store prize that's been sitting on top of the fridge where he can see it. Maybe I could do the same thing for myself. Does that sound awful?
