Creating A Cleaning Schedule
Everyone of us have busy lives. It would seem that the days seem to fly by and before we know it one more year has finished and we suddenly look five years older. Personally, I work such long hours – but I incessantly make plenty of time for my family. This leaves me with no time to clean the home.
Regrettably my husband works a great deal too and neither one of us have the energy to clean what we should. We would enjoy do anything to hire a maid – but that demands money that could be better spent on school apparel or maybe even food! So instead we have chosen to put together a cleaning house agenda.
This is a kind of checklist that you and your mate will put together and it can make things twice as easy. Collect notebook paper and a pencil and write down all of the rooms in the house. Be sure to include the guest room, hall, and office in that list. They may not be used a lot – but they can still get dirty.
Underneath every room make a bullet list of everything that has to be done. For example, in the living room you may put down dust, vacuum, and tidy up. For the bathroom you can put down sink, toilet, and shower. You need to put together a detailed list of everything that needs to be done.
Now that you have your list together you should deal out the chores equally among yourselves. If you have older children than make sure they have their own group of chores. You will be able to take on entire rooms or you could be in charge of dusting each room or cleaning the tiles. Each week you will be responsible for your part of the list. You will be stunned how much cleaner your home will be.
