Let's Get Clean

So the other day someone asked about our cleaning schedule, how it works, what I do each day, and if my husband helps. 

I wish I could say it's some foolproof's really nothing fancy. My mom would disapprove, but I clean a little bit each day. This way, by the end of the week, the entire house has been cleaned. Some of my friends dedicate one whole day (typically Sunday) to laundry/cleaning, but that just doesn't work for me. 

Money Saving Mom has these printables available and I keep them in clear plastic sheets on the side of our fridge. 

I reprinted them for the photos. :) 

To answer the other part of your question, sometimes my husband helps. He gets a weekly to-do list and there's always random items on it. Sometimes he'll vacuum for me because I despise vacuuming. That is why I keep him around. :)

Side note: Just got home from Sports Authority and he was cleaning a bathroom. Seriously, amazeballs. 

Mondays are super busy for me, so I made sure to make them a light day. The hardest part was probably deciding what to do on what days. I would finish and realize that I forgot something major like clean the toilets! Duh! 

Oh and my confession-- If something comes up and I'm not able to that day's cleaning, I don't kill myself. It is what it is. It will get done next week.

I'm sure this is coming, but I am a total smell freak. I constantly worry our house smells like dog, so spraying "smelly stuff" is very important. :) 

Yup, we totally only wash our sheets once every two weeks. Judge me.  It's more of a time thing than anything. Sometimes we don't even do laundry every week..with only two people we don't dirty much!

The second sheet is for monthly, every 3 months, and every 6 months cleaning. We don't have too much because 1. We rent and 2. We don't have a yard/garage. I don't have to send my husband gutter cleaning every Saturday, and I think that's pretty awesome. 

Oh and I totally snagged this idea from my MIL-- Keep all your cleaning crap in a container that you can carry around. It makes life so much easier. 

We keep this under our kitchen sink. After taking this photo I decided to go through it and ended up throwing away a few things. I know we're bad.. we don't use "all natural" or organic products. Again, judge me. 

So I hope that answers your question! You can always send your questions to my email--! xO


  1. Nice! You had these laid out & structured. Cleaning would sometimes be such a vast endeavor that you wouldn't know when to start, which areas and corners to work on first. So this is a good save. Don't be too hard on yourselves though, heh. My only advice is: don't hesitate to get additional cleaning service, should things be too daunting.
