31 Days to a More Organized Life ~ Day 4 (Cleaning Schedule)

If you have been following along with me the last few days, you probably have noticed that my focus of this week is using documents to organize different areas in our home. I have found overall that spreadsheets, checklists and schedules work best for my family and I.

Today I want to focus on how to keep your home clean and tidy without stressing about it one day a week. I find myself to be much happier when my home is organized and clean. This gets a little difficult with a little one at home.

I decided to make a list of everything that needs to be cleaned around the home. I started making the list at my kitchen table but then realized that I needed to walk around the house to make sure I didn’t miss anything. I created a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annually list based on what I came up with. I also came up with a few items that should be done 2 or more times a week.

To help me on a weekly basis, I created another document by day. I love checking off accomplishments so this is great to have on the fridge for easy updating. 
I can’t wait to put this list in action and see if it helps keep our home a little cleaner and my stress a little lower!
