Do you have a routine for chores/cleaning around the house?

What's your routine for cleaning? I'm looking for a new one because I procrastinate too much... so I'm trying to find a way to motivate myself to clean in a more routine way. (I know a lot of it is my own attitude, so coments about that are not necessary... I'm working on it) Are there certain things you do on each day of the week?

  • Hi,
    One thing I started doing recently that has helped me A LOT, is this: every evening before I go to bed, I load the dishes in the dishwasher and clean the kitchen sink and counters. I know it doesn't sound like much, but it's a really good feeling to wake up and have the kitchen clean. It's just a start, but I hope it helps you feel motivated to do more. I got the idea from the "Flylady" - she has great tips for organizing and cleaning. You can Google her to find her website. Good luck!

  • Every Monday I do the bathrooms (3) laundry about every other day. etc.
    On the weekends I just make the bed and I'm off ")

  • Yeah, laundry is about every other day or so, I sweep and vacuum usually on Mondays and Fridays, and just spot clean the rest of the week. Weekends are for spending time with the family and I don't do anything on the weekends!

  • I have also recently discovered "Flylady". Her tips have helped me have a little more peace and a lot less stress when it comes to household chores. Good luck.

  • I sweep, mop, vacuum, dust, make beds every day. Mondays I deep clean the fridge & clean the bathrooms. I also do the weekend laundry on Mondays. Tuesdays I clean the baseboards. Wednesdays I do more laundry. Thursdays I clean the bathrooms again. Fridays I do more laundry. I do minor clean ups only on the weekends. Nothing major, no laundry, no mopping/dusting but I will sweep & vacuum.

  • I change sheets on Mondays and Fridays. I make the bed first thing, load the washer, then I just work for an hour on the upstairs, load the washer and dryer, and work for an hour on the downstairs. Every day I start my hour in a different room.
