My Weekly Cleaning Schedule

In our house Alex does all the cooking and I do all the cleaning. It's a good mix of responsibilities too. I mean deep down, I actually love cleaning. Especially vacuuming and dusting - you know the ones that have immediate results. My least favourite chore, laundry. Because I hate folding clothes. Thankfully most of the time Alex does it. But everything else I don't mind. And since I tend to be a crazy list-maker, and hate dedicating a whole day to cleaning, I have a weekly schedule that I like to stick to for all of my cleaning tasks.

Don't get me wrong, sometimes the week gets super busy and cleaning gets put on the backburner - something that desperately needs a good cleaning. However, I've found that breaking my cleaning up and spanning it over the course of five days makes it A LOT easier. Because seriously, five hours of cleaning sounds completely miserable to me.

Here's what my Weekly Cleaning Schedule looks like:
Tuesday - Bathrooms. Scrub toilets, sinks, bathtubs and countertops. Vacuum and mop floors in both bathrooms and kitchen.
Wednesday- Dust. Bedrooms, living room and hall stands.
Thursday - Vacuum & Mop. Hallway, bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen and laundry room. Olive - Wash her linens with our towels and doormats.
Friday - Deep Clean & Organize. Clean the stovetop, kitchen counter and kitchen cabinets. Organize our bedroom closet. Remove any expired food & organize the fridge.
Saturday - Laundry. Wash all the clothes and bedsheets.

Some daily tasks to keep things tidy:
  • Sweep living room, dining room and kitchen - thanks Alex
  • Dishes and countertops. Sometimes an extra vacuum session
  • General tidiness -remove any random messes and put things where they belong

Obviously, this isn't something that is new to any of you, or rocket science, but I always enjoy finding out how other people stay on top of things. Or how they implement it. Do you have a cleaning schedule that you stick to? Does it differ from mine? I'd love to hear about it in the comments below!
