When we’re juggling work, school, children, pets, and everything else in life, it’s hard to find time to do those necessary things that no one really enjoys – chores. If you don’t know how you’ll do it all, a cleaning schedule can help. Here are some ideas on making and using one.
Decide What Works for Your Family
There is no one type of cleaning schedule that will work for every family. You need to design your cleaning schedule based on your own routine. Some people, for example, will decide to clean certain things on certain days. Others will dedicate one entire day to doing all their cleaning. Many others don’t have a schedule and simply “go with the flow.” You will probably try out several different types of schedules before you find what makes the most sense for you.
Use Your Time Efficiently
Obviously, it’s important to use your time as efficiently as possible. No matter what cleaning schedules you decide on, make sure it is maximizing your time and making efficient use of it. For example, clean your kitchen and living room every Thursday so they’re clean for weekend visitors. When you wash the bathroom floors, wash all of the floors in your house so you don’t have to pull out the mop an extra time. Multi-tasking is also very useful for a cleaning schedule.
