Keeping your house clean can be a struggle. You may feel like you spend all day cleaning your house, only for it to be a mess the next day. Create a list of daily, weekly and monthly choirs to keep your house under control.
Things You'll Need
- Cleaning products
Daily chores may include doing a load of laundry, unloading the dishwasher, vacuuming and picking up.
Assign each daily job a time. For example, when you wake up start a load of laundry and unload the dishwasher. After lunch fold and put away the laundry. Before bed, straighten up and run the dishwasher for the next day.
Weekly chores may include cleaning the bathroom, washing sheets, windexing mirrors and cleaning rooms.
Assign each weekly job a day of the week. For example Mondays you clean the bathrooms, Tuesday you wash all the sheets, Wednesday you windex mirrors, and so on.
Monthly chores may include washing the windows, cleaning out the fridge, dusting and clearing out clutter.
For your monthly chores, pick a day of the week that is "slow". For example, if you don't have a daily chore on Thursdays, every Thursday do one of your Monthly chores. The first Thursday of the month you can dust, the second Thursday you can clean the fridge, and so on.
Sometimes keeping your laundry under control can be the hardest part. The most important thing to remember, is don't procrastinate. Start a load each morning. As soon as the load is done, but it in the dryer and as soon as it is dry fold it and put it away. Don't put off folding your laundry, or you will end up with mountains of clean and wrinkled clothes.
Tips & Warnings
- Start off small. Don't burn out. If you start off trying to do everything, you may become overwelhmed and give up. Add one chore each week until your household is running smoothly.
- Enlist the family. Give your kids... and husband chores.
