Let’s face it – we only have 24 hours in the day and all of us mama’s have more than that to do. Regardless of if you stay at home or work full-time, homeschool or send your kids to school – our to-do lists are always a mile long and for many, it can seem like it never gets done. For me, a big chunk of that to-do list every day has to do with housekeeping and until recently it seemed to always fall to the bottom of the list (i.e. didn’t get done). I was really struggling because I chose not only to be a stay at home mom but a homemaker also. Part of that means “keeping the home”, aka keeping it clean. I strive to keep a home that is relaxing, warm and inviting for both our family and others. I realize the pressure to maintain a clean house on top of everything else is self-inflicted pressure but it’s there nonetheless. I read dozens of blog posts and articles about staying on top of housecleaning and the “secrets” of homemakers who are always on top of their game. The common thread through all of them was the notion of having weekly cleaning schedules.
Here’s the thing – a quick pinterest search on weekly cleaning schedules will bring up dozens of different printables and worksheets. They are beautiful and look lovely but the truth is that everyone’s house and priorities are different. I tried a few of the “pre-done” schedules and found myself getting frustrated as I was constantly behind each day. It wasn’t until I threw out the beautifully made cookie cutter schedule and sat down to make my own that I finally felt like I was getting somewhere.
