Look, cleaning is probably never going to be your favorite thing to do, but getting organized can certainly make the prospect of cleaning less overwhelming. Not only can a little organization help you stay on top of household chores, it can also help you break down tasks into more appealing bite-sized activities. For an easy to digest weekly overview, make these printable weekly house cleaning schedules your go-to!
There are tons of printable cleaning schedules available online. You can find just about any timeline—daily, weekly, monthly—cleaning schedule template. However, when it comes to common household chores that you’ll complete on a regular basis, a daily or weekly home cleaning schedule is probably your best bet. In this post you’ll find two weekly house cleaning schedule templates. You can find daily cleaning schedule printables here.
Tip: As mentioned above, you can find just about any timeline—daily, weekly, monthly—cleaning schedule template. You can even find yearly options! Typically, a daily or weekly room cleaning schedule is going to work best, but a monthly (or even yearly) option can be great for those once-in-a-while tasks like washing windows or storing patio furniture for the winter. This spring cleaning checklist can help you keep track of some of those occasional household chores.
Pre-Filled Printable Weekly Cleaning Schedule Template
Not sure where to start? This weekly home cleaning schedule has some of the everyday tasks pre-filled for you! Plus there are still a few blank lines so you can add your own everyday chores, and they don’t have to be cleaning. For example, if you have school-aged children, you could add “check homework folders” to one of the lines in the everyday box of the weekly family cleaning schedule.
Tip: It’s important to have an everyday section and then a section for each day of the week so you don’t overbook yourself when filling out the weekly home cleaning schedule! Overcommitting and not being able to check things off your house cleaning schedule (daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly) can make you feel defeated and cause you to give up on using the printable altogether, so be realistic. (This same principle applies when setting financial goals or a budget!) 🙂
