January 1st is never the start of the New Year for me, it’s always the 1st Day of School. Once the kids start school, it’s a New Year for me! New grade, new teachers, new routines, new schedules, new everything… so I’ve always just approached September as my Day 1, my starting point – my NEW YEAR.
With the beginning of this New Year, I’m getting my house in order! I don’t have a cleaning crew, it’s just me, myself and I… along with the family’s help when I pester them. This year is going to be different. I don’t want to pester. I don’t want to fight about it. I just want help. My kids hate it when I just call out chores, so I thought I would make it easy on everything this time around… make a Weekly Cleaning Schedule. This way everyone knows what needs to get done, there aren’t and won’t be any surprises!
If you’re like me and looking for an easy way to get your family involved in family cleaning, I put together this thorough Weekly Cleaning Schedule printable. You can easily print it out every weekend and pop it up on your fridge or family bulletin board. Assign duties like a champ!
I wanted to make it as simple as possible. When you take things in bite sizes, it seems to work the most seamlessly. I broke the schedule up by specific rooms by day. I feel like if you look at your cleaning schedule by room rather than by it at large, it makes it much less daunting!
I hope this helps and gives you a chance to get all your cleaning needs done!
And get your family in to help you, too!
