Since moving to a smaller house, I’ve noticed it’s even more important to have a cleaning routine. The kids seem to make more mess, especially in the family rooms and the bathroom making it almost impossible in a small space kept looking nice and presentable. For this task, all I need is a cleaning planner.
No one enjoys living in a messy, dirty house, and the mind isn’t able to relax if there are still pots in the sink and the wooden floors are dusty.
Finding time to manage all the tasks and keeping a regular cleaning and decluttering schedule is often the biggest hurdle to creating a clean home. I don’t think I’m the only one who often gets up early to get ahead on the cleaning tasks when no one else is around.
I can help you with that –
Here is a plan to get your cleaning schedule under control – with our free printable cleaning checklists, you can use the Daily Cleaning Checklists or the Speed cleaning list to help you keep your house tidy regularly.
DECLUTTERING AND CLEANING PLANNER
In the past, I have had a cleaner do most of it – I remember it feeling like a treat to arrive home and be greeted by a clean and tidy home, making the space feel so much more welcoming. I don’t mind cleaning, but it often falls to one person to do it all weekly, and I feel better and more relaxed when it is completed.
As I’ve got older and kids are almost all grown, I understand living in a clean space is good for the mind and soul. Opening the door to a beautiful clean smell of polished wood and a clean bathroom is almost therapy. Remembering to change the bed on the same day each week and even putting a few flowers on display signals the start of the weekend for me.
I’ve moved countries with the whole family twice now – and each time, we have had to declutter our lives and belongings seriously. Throwing out all the broken or unloved things is hard, but developing this into a weekly cleaning schedule will ensure you never get swamped with mess again.
Not knowing how to begin or doing the minimum necessary is ok for a while. My sister-in-law calls this ‘only what the Mother in Law sees.’
It’s always stuck with me.
