  • My cleaning schedule goes like this...

    Oh Crap! Someone is coming over... CLEAN!

    I am working to get on a better schedule, so I am interested in the answers you get.

  • (from a work-outside-the-home single mom): I don't do anything during the week unless there is a major cleaning crisis. I wish I could do more! So every weekend I sweep the whole house, clean the bathroom, etc etc, and then whenever there is time I do all the deep -clean stuff - like during 3-day weekends etc

  • lol, i don't have a time limit on it. i do the laundry when one of the hampers is full, and i clean a little bit throughout the day. the kids are in charge of picking up the family room before bath time (5yo and 2yo.... the baby can't do much lol). i must admit i am not good at doing the 'deep cleaning' sort of thing. for example, i sweep up the kitchen floor a couple of times a day and mop up any kind of mess that may occur when it happens, but mopping the whole floor i only do it maybe every 2 weeks. i just hate cleaning lol, but i have found that if you do a little at a time it is easier than letting it get gross and then having to do a deep clean constantly.

  • I try to sweep everyday, vacuum a couple of times a week. Put things back when you use them that way they don't need picking up. Wash dishes after every meal. Wash clothes a couple of times a week. I try to stay ahead of my house instead of letting it lead me around. It doesn't always work, but most of the time, we get along very well.
