I made a cleaning schedule for myself. This way I make sure things get done though out the week. Even the things we dont normally see much of. Also schedule in what I will be making for dinner, ect.. Of course I will try to keep everything tidy all day so the schedule will have just the main things I want to focus on that day besides all the little extra details that are done anyway.
Monday- Mop, Seperate Laundry, Clean Bathroom (that goes as far as scrubbing tub, toilet, ect..) Dinner: Spegetti with Meatballs/Garlic Bread/and Salad.
Tuesday- Wash Clothes (All Clothes). Takes 2-3 hours at laundry mat. Fold and Hang up clothes, Dust Blinds/Shelves/Furniture. Dinner: Chicken Tacos/Rice/Beans/Salad
Wednesday- Mop, Clean Refrigerator and Wipe down Stove. Dinner: Fish Burgers (sides vary), Fish sticks for 1 year old.
Thursday- Clean Bathroom (Same expectation as Monday), Make sure rooms are decent and clean and nothing has gone totally wrong if so pick up a little more than usual today. Dinner: Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
Friday- Mop, Seperate and Wash Laundry, Throw away Old un-eaten food in refrigerator and wipe down stove. Dinner: Daddy is suprising us with dinner today
Saturday- Take a break. Today is family day. Go out, Eat Out, have fun and Enjoy your day.
Sunday- Mop and mak sure all rooms look tidy, Maybe do some deep cleaning today? Go threw drawers and Cabinets, Closets or boxes stored with miscellaneous items. Dinner: Strogenoff (sp?)
Everyday Expectations: Pick up after yourself and your little one constantly through out the day. Dont let things sit and pile or add up. Husband takes out the trash daily. Mommy gets One Hour every other day to go to the gym. If you didnt go today make sure you go tomorrow. Dishes get washed after every meal and if that doesnt happen it gets done when kids are in bed (Dont forget to shower too).
