As you can see from my extremely detailed (or not!) cleaning schedule, I am not a cleaning expert. With the baby on the way, I have tried to get into a groove, as far as what cleaning gets done on what days. So far, so good. Using this simple schedule, I know that the bathrooms get cleaned once a week. There are quite a few things that I do regularly that are not on the list. Things like, load and unload the dishwasher get done when necessary (which is pretty much every day).
I would like to take my cleaning schedule to the next level adding in some things that I don’t need to do every day, but need to be scheduled to make sure I actually do them once in a while. Things like: cleaning window sils and base boards, washing sheets, and cleaning windows and blinds are probably more like once a month chores in my mind. I think I will get a white board with a monthly calendar on it, or maybe i’ll just print a calendar for each month and use it to schedule the once a month cleaning duties.
I realize that my cleaning schedule will change as my family grows and changes. Right now I have no problem getting all of our laundry done in one day (Moms of multiple children are probably laughing at me right now) but I know that once we add a kid (with cloth diapers) to the mix I will need to adjust the laundry schedule, among other things. I am the kind of person that can let a whole day go to waste if I don’t have some sort of schedule in place. Thus my attempt to make a cleaning schedule, however primitive it may be!
