I clean a little bit all day I do swoops threw the house a few times a day and pick up toys and trash the kids have left around and take care of that, then I sweep every day and vacuum every other day (most the time) and do the rest when its needed.
The kids help me usually. But if its something they can't help me with I usually put a movie in.
I clean whenever I can. I try do things that I can get the kids into, like picking up their toys when they have a bunch out, or dishes, and dusting, Kids love to help. Most of my hardcore cleaning is done when they're not hear or when they're napping.
I clean the kitchen and do laundry every night after DD goes to bed. And depending on the time I have before I'm ready to go to bed, I organize my table and vacuum/sweep. On the weekends I do whatever laundry I didn't do during the week, scrub the floors, do the cat box, new sheets on the beds, vacuum everything (we have 4 animals) and clean out the fridge. I have rotating Saturdays, so a lot of times I break it up between Saturday and Sunday. If not, I do it all in one day so that I have one day to bumm around.
Toys are put away daily of course. Dishes are done nightly.
Laundry, mopping, dusting, and vacuuming happen on Friday night and Saturday morning.
I work full-time so we pay someone to clean and do our landscaping when we're all out of the house. Of course, I clean the kitchen each night after I make dinner, and the kids have to clean up their toys. On the weekends, it's usually DH handling the laundry while the kids play and I cut coupons, make the food store list and do the food shopping.
I work. My kids have chores they do. I do laundry and cook. :) They clean when they get home from school after homework. :)
