One of my goals for 2016 is to make time for routine cleaning tasks. I’ve actually never worked from a cleaning schedule – I have a weekly routine that I follow to get the house clean and tidy, but the monthly and quarterly tasks only get done when I notice that area needs attention. For my new goal, I’ve created a cleaning schedule to help me stay on top of those tasks and get everything done!
In the past, I’ve done those weekly tasks all in one day. This year I’m hoping to do a little chunk of my weekly cleaning routine each day, leaving me plenty of time on the weekend to tackle the other jobs. I have no idea how well this will work! My plan is to try the new routine for at least a month – after that, I’ll report back on how it is working for me.
There are two things not listed on my daily/weekly schedule – laundry and emptying the dishwasher. Paul helps me with those things and we just do them as needed.

Do you clean a little bit each day or all in one day?
