Everyone has to clean and sometimes cleaning with a busy schedule can be frustrating and overwhelming. Whether you are a stay at home mom, work full time or retired- cleaning is a job that requires time and effort. Everyone has busy schedules and obligations. I have been researching different weekly cleaning schedules. Some people love to clean, for me I love a clean house, but I don’t enjoy cleaning. Messes and clutter drive me nuts (I cringe looking at it). A happy home is a clean home to me.
Creating a cleaning schedule will be trial and error until you find one that works for you. I am a stay at home mom with two small children. I learned that doing a few cleaning chores a day is easier for me. Plus with having a cleaning routine I can look ahead at my week. This helps me to do extra cleaning on certain days. For example my son goes to a cooperative preschool so on the days I help, I do my Tuesday chores on another day. Personally I can get overwhelmed at a huge to do list and doing a couple chores a day is better for me. It allows me to enjoy the weekends with my family and take some time off, as much time off as a mom gets.

My weekly cleaning schedule hangs on the fridge, which allows me to see it all the time. It’s a great reminder too!
3 Cleaning Schedules for a Happy Clean Home
Lambert’s Lately– I love how colorful this one is and how it’s organized. I like that it adds outside chores too, which is always an issue for me in the summer.
Uncommon Designs– This one is printable with chores for everyday and a spot to add in notes for the week. Uncommon Designs recommends laminating the schedule and using a dry erase marker to mark off chores completed (brilliant idea).
Viva Veltoro – This one has chores listed daily and I love how it says to spend time with your family on the weekend. So important.
I hope these cleaning routines help you and inspire you to do a little everyday to have a clean home to relax in after a long day. I relax better looking out at a clean living room after the kids go to bed and I’m ready to start another day knowing I’m going to wake up to a clutter free home.
