Cleaning Schedule {Free Printable}

When was the last time i vacuumed? When was the last time i washed that bedding? When was the last time i cleaned that toilet? These are all questions i have asked myself.

I’m a busy mom of 5 kids.

I homeschool them.

I run my husband’s small business.

I also have this little blog over here that i try to keep up with.

My plate is full.

So with cleaning & keeping up with the when was the last time i did this or that, is really hard to remember it all.

That’s why i decided to create a cleaning schedule. Something that wasn’t too complicated. One where i focus on a particular task each day.

Here is what my cleaning schedule looks like:

  • Mop It Monday* – Mopping, vacuuming, etc. (everything that has to do with floors)
  • Toilet Tuesday – Deep clean bathrooms (dust, toilets, mirrors, etc.)
  • Wash It Wednesday – Wash all bedding.
  • Throw It Away Thursday – Organize/declutter paperwork, etc. (toss junk mail, file paperwork, etc.)
  • Fantastic Fridge Friday – Clean out fridge & pantry.

Monday – Friday i have a new specific cleaning goal. Of course some things aren’t mentioned on the above list, like the everyday stuff (take out garbage, make beds, tidy up, do dishes).

I actually did research on how often you should clean before i came up with this list, and even Martha Stewart agrees with me when it comes to washing bedding, cleaning toilets, and vacuuming.

*Note: Just thought i would add in a little note here, that your high traffic areas probably will need vacuuming more than once a week. Also if you have small children you might have to mop your floors more than once a week as well.*

Since starting this new cleaning schedule, i feel like my house is cleaner. I also no longer have days where i’m like shoot i forgot to clean the toilet. Plus it’s kind of a fun and easy schedule to remember.
