An Easy Way to Keep a Clean House

an easy way to keep a clean house

 

As a busy mom of two, I’m always trying to improve on my organizational skills! Sometimes I straight-up just don’t want to clean my house! My husband and I work together to keep our home organized and clean, so it isn’t just on me, but I am kind of the one in charge of how it all works.

Over the last few years, I’ve figured out a system that helps me stay on top of things. I don’t always follow it… But I try! I’ve found that if I divide things up by daily chores, weekly chores, and monthly chores, then the cleaning is easier to manage. Here’s how I divide it up in my house:

Household Cleaning List

Daily

  • Make beds
  • Do dishes
  • Clean kitchen counters and table
  • Sweep kitchen and dining room
  • Pick up living room(s)

Weekly

  • Vacuum
  • Mop
  • Wipe down bathroom(s) (disinfecting wipes, clean toilets)                  
  • Fold and put away laundry
  • Pick up bedrooms

Every Two Weeks

  • Deep clean bathroom(s) (clean/disinfect toilets, counters, tubs, faucets, floors)

Monthly

  • Dust
  • Declutter household papers
  • Declutter bedrooms
  • Declutter toys (throw away ones that are broken; give to friends or charities ones your kids don’t play with anymore; put in keepsake boxes toys you want to keep as memories)

 

I have two printables for you! If you want this list as a reference to keep on your fridge, you can get it here!

And if you want a checklist version of the list, where you can check chores off as you go, get it here!

Happy cleaning! 😉
