Daily Cleaning Schedule {Family Friday}

Family Friday time!!  Yay!!  If you’re new here you might not know that I am just this year adjusting to being a full-time stay at home mom. After 18 years of working (in one form or fashion) in our Church Weekday ministry, God called me out of that and home to take care of things here full-time.  
Needless to say I am LOVING it.  God plans are always better, am I right??  So, as I said, I am adjusting.  Before I would cram all my home duties into my 1 or 2 days off, and then stress about it over the weekend.  
After a few months at home, especially after the kids went back to school in the fall, I noticed that I was still having a hard time keeping up with it all.  Not because I didn’t have time, but because I was just used to doing it because it HAD to be done.  For instance, someone is coming over – “hurry clean the toilets, do the dishes, shove the laundry in the laundry room, and sweep the floor!!”  
Now that I have the time I would really prefer to keep things tidy on a regular, manageable basis. I am not a neat-freak (that’s my hubby), nor am I a schedule keeper. So, when a young mom first asked me if I used some sort of cleaning schedule to keep up with daily tasks, I laughed, and said “no”.  And then, on the way home was thinking, ‘well duh, that would make sense.’  
So, naturally I started scouring the internet via Pinterest, and I pinned plenty, and totally ignored all of them.  Most of them left me completely overwhelmed, certain I would be exhausted by the time I finished with the tasks each day.  And, ya’ll know I need time for my projects!!  The rest of them just seemed like over-kill.  Like I said – no neat-freak here!!  Until I came across this one at Of The Hearth (thank you so much for the great plan!).  I loved the simplicity of it, and I didn’t feel like I was overdoing it or myself. There were a few things that needed tweaking of course – no ones house or needs are exactly the same.  So, I finally sat down and made my own.  I used a very similar design and a lot of the same tasks.  

Below each picture is the link to the printable version.

I also created one that is semi-blank

and one that is completely blank – just in case you want the inside to say something different.

All are yours to print, use and share.  
I have to admit that I just made the schedule this week and I will start using it next week. I will have to come back and let you know how it is going!!  
How about you??  Do you use a schedule for cleaning, or do you just do what you think is needed day to day??  Have a great weekend!!

  1. Thank you! God has also brought me home full time for a season and I am trying to refresh my cleaning schedule. I love this idea and I appreciate the mostly blank and blank grids so I can create a schedule that meets my needs.
