Happy New Year!
I’m sure I’m not alone when the new year rolls around and I go on an organizing and purging spree!
This year, one of my personal goals for the new year was to make a cleaning schedule, and KEEP it. In the past I’ve always just cleaned “as needed” and never on a schedule. This never really worked for me and I often times felt out of control and overwhelmed. Doing three loads of laundry in a day is exhausting. With a schedule, I can easily do one load of laundry per day and consistently stay on top of the laundry and all household chores.
In preparation for the new year, I scoured the blogosphere looking for the perfect cleaning schedule. I couldn’t find a basic cleaning schedule that was just right, so I made my own!
This basic cleaning schedule is just that, BASIC. The household chores you need to tackle to keep a house picked up and tidy on a weekly basis. I also created it as a checklist so it can be laminated or covered with a page protector, that way each chore can be checked off with a dry erase marker and at the end of the week the whole thing can be erased and ready for a clean slate!

My favorite part about this printable is the quote. I found this quote and it’s just the words I need to remember while I’m organizing and tidying up. If it’s not useful or beautiful, there’s no place for it on home! I’m hoping that seeing this on a daily basis I’ll be able to let go of the unnecessary “stuff.”
