Last week I had a bad cold which means that basically no cleaning got done in our house all week! To make up for last week, I plan to give our home an extra thorough cleaning this week and with that in mind, I thought I’d share my weekly cleaning routine.
Some people prefer to clean by task (Monday dusting, Tuesday vacuuming, etc.) but I prefer to clean by room. There’s just something so refreshing about having an entire room clean that really motivates me to get things done. Here’s what my current routine looks like…
- Monday – Living Room
- Tuesday – Kitchen
- Wednesday – Bathroom
- Thursday – Nursery
- Friday – Bedroom
I don’t plan any chores for the weekend because I usually spend Saturdays meal planning and shopping and on Sundays we go to church, visit family, and rest.
In addition to weekly cleaning, I also have a list of tasks that I complete daily. These help me stay on top of the mess and keep the house generally tidy. Here’s a list of the chores I do every day…
- Wash dishes
- 2 loads of laundry
- Tidy up rooms
- Spray & wipe kitchen table
- Sweep kitchen floor
Together, my daily tasks and weekly tasks make up a simple cleaning routine. If you’d like to try my routine out for yourself, I’ve created a cute printable so you can follow along! Just click the link below to download…
Do you follow a weekly cleaning schedule? If so, do you prefer to organize your cleaning routine by task or room? Leave a comment and let me know!
