Weekly Cleaning Schedule

I love schedules and when I was first making the transition from super slob to clean freak, I used them religiously.  After a few years, it has just become second nature and I no longer needed to follow a defined “schedule”…that is until now.

The holiday season is busy… really busy.  In fact, we have a holiday party every single Saturday and Sunday from now until New Years day.  This means shopping and errands need to be done in the evenings, which leaves very little time for household tasks.

While every inch of me wants to just put my household duties on hold until after the holidays, deep down I know that this will only make more work for me later, and more stress.   Not cleaning regularly wrecks your home, it honestly does.  Dirt and grime build up and can stain carpets and hard surfaces like tubs, counter tops, sinks and even walls. And lets not even go there with the funk that embeds itself in your furniture and fabrics. Besides, letting your bathroom go means having to scrub it clean.  Wiping it down at least once a week means never having to scrub, and I hate scrubbing.

Re-Enter the Weekly Cleaning Schedule. This is the very best way I have found to keep on top of my home with minimal effort and time.  I’m bringing it back in my home over the holidays to force myself to do those 15-30 minutes or so a day that will keep my home clean and clutter-free this Christmas. Actually, Christmas is probably the most important time of the year to put your home on the top of your priority list.  Who has time to look for missing gifts, those favourite party shoes or  scrub the floor before guest stop by? Not me.

Here are a few different weekly cleaning lists I have found that can help you keep your home beautifully clean with minimal time and effort:

And don’t forget to purge your crap to make room for all the new shit you’re getting this year. Here is a cute 40 bags in 40 days list I found on Pinterest:

And last, but not least, here is a super cool way of keeping track of your gift giving this year:


  1. Greetings. I can relate, I used to be a slob but now with my own home, I am now a fanatic about keeping a clean and organised abode (after viewing your bathroom cleaning tips!!!) Thanks for sharing, I can’t believe I’m not the only one!! I’m still slowly working my way through our study room (aka junk room) and it’s been 6 months since we moved in!

  2. You are adorable! Just saw 2 youtubes of you. Pink or blue.. Have ou found out yet?!

  3. Hi there, did you create the second cleaning schedule? It looks like whoever did, used a smaller pixel/inch ration to upload a picture of it on the web so when I try to print it out, it’s very pixelated. I’d like to contact whoever is the creator so I can see about getting a large pixel/inch copy.

  4. I am a new viewer, I love your blog and all of your videos on your channels. I am now watching all of them on the stay at homes, as well. You are teaching both my daughter and me so much. Thank you for taking the time to do this you are adding a lot to our lives.

  5. I think this is a great way for the family to work together and to teach the kids responsibilities. Thank you for sharing. I will have to try this in my house. If only I could get the 2 yr old o pick up his room without whining

  6. Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your website in web explorer, may check this?
    IE still is the market leader and a big element of folks will miss your great writing due to this problem.

  7. Hey there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website
    with us so I came to look itt over. I’m definitely enjoying thhe information.
    I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to mmy followers!
    Outstanding blog and wonderful style and design.

  8. Additionally, they make use of disinfectants, which free
    your carpet from any bacteria or germs. Committed
    to the needs of the client the Company can perform personalized projects,
    as they offer individualized cleaning tailored to meet the needs
    and budget of each customer. It is quite disappointing
    to invest the company resources to a cleaning service that will bring more
    harm than good.

  9. Hi there mates, how is all, and what you would like to say on the
    topic of this article, in my view its genuinely awesome
    in support of me.

  10. Gosh, I wish I would have had that iniafmotron earlier!
