Some great ideas for keeping up with the cleaning that has to be done is having a "sasonal" schedule. This schedule allows you to know the BIG things that need to be taken care of on a yearly basis. A great example of a seasonal cleaning activity is cleaning out the garage or basement. This isn't something you want or need to tackle every day or even every week. This is something that if you schedule it in your yearly schedule - even if you schedule CHUNKS of it getting done - you will be able to stay on top of it.
Next, you have your Quarterly Schedule. These are cleaning/organizational activities that need to be conquered every quarter. One example of a quarterly cleaning activity is cleaning out your air vents. This isn't something that needs to be done weekly or even monthly - but once a quarter is a great way to stay on top of it!
Then you have your Monthly jobs. These are recurring jobs that need to be done every month. One great idea is to have a monthly WALK THROUGH on your living space - inside and out. This gives you a great idea on what needs to be taken care of and what needs immediate attention or what can wait until the future.
Then you have your weekly jobs and then your Daily Jobs. Weekly jobs can include mopping or deep cleaning. Daily jobs include keeping the kitchen/bathroom counters wiped up and keeping every thing "picked up".
There are many ideas of cleaning schedules. Finding what works for you and for your family can be the start of something wonderful! Once you find what works for you, then it is just a matter of staying on top of it. You can set reminders on your phone calendar, make a list, make a chart or however works best for you. The important thing is to just do it!
However you decide to tackle the cleaning jobs the must be done I wish you every success!
Make it a great one!
