Chore-a-day Cleaning Schedule for Busy Moms

Today I am sharing a simple cleaning schedule that I have followed (more or less) for years.

Everyday tasks such as dishes, laundry, and meal prep are listed, plus one additional cleaning chore for each day from Monday to Friday.  There’s a blank spot for each day, to fill in what you are planning to make for supper.  In the Thursday column, there’s another blank spot to fill in one monthly job of your choice.  (See the list below the schedule, for a few suggestions.)

By having this schedule in place, my house can stay reasonably clean without much thought or stress.  And on the weeks when I don’t complete each and every task (hey, it happens 😉 ) I simply take a breath and start again, from scratch, on Monday.

For more background on how this routine came about, see this post.

Let me know in the comments – what is your cleaning routine?  And if you try my schedule, tell me how it works for you!

Warm wishes,

Lisa
