Click here for the printable version of the daily cleaning schedule!
I guess you could say that I have completely failed at my Pinterest challenge. So far, I’ve only posted one other post – the DIY canvas art. I honestly haven’t had time to get any of my projects finished. However, this cleaning schedule has been a work in progress for a while now. In fact, I started it before I started any of the other projects. I just wanted to perfect it before I posted. And, I wanted to make sure it was doable for me and hopefully for others.
I don’t know about you, but I have always had a hard time getting housework done. It seems especially worse now that I’m not working though. I can be sitting on my computer or watching TV thinking, I have all day to get that stuff done, but then it’s the end of the day and nothing is done!
Inspired by this cleaning schedule, I started by choosing some simple daily chores – like doing one load of laundry and making sure the dishes are taken care of before going to be each night – to really get myself in the habit of getting things done. Then I broke up all my “big” tasks throughout the week. This way, I’m not doing too much in one day, but it’s still getting done.
I think the best part about my new daily cleaning schedule is the fact that if something doesn’t actually get done one day – like a load of laundry – it just gets done the next day. As long as I stick to my schedule, the house stays pretty clean and I’m pretty satisfied with myself.
As for the rest of my Pinterest challenge, it may have to wait until after hockey season is over because things are just too crazy here right now!
