I’ve been updating my cleaning routines and charts to organize myself for the new year and co-ordinate everything to my new theme. Beauty inspires me, at least for the first four or five months of the year. So having a fresh, new look helps me to be more inclined to look at my routine and DO IT!
And since I spent the time to make it, I wanted to share it with you. It’s a free printable. Click on the image to download. Then, hang it in a frame to make a dry-erase chart, laminate it, or just pin it to your fridge—whatever fits your style.
The way I want this to work is that my ultimate goal would be to get everything done each day. Most of time, that’s not going to happen. (Let’s be real, right?) So, I’ve bolded the items that I’d like to be my “bare minimum” goals. Since the other tasks are being repeated everyday, chances are they’ll stay somewhat maintained within the week. Ultimately, I may get behind within the week, but I’m trying my best to not get behind from one week to another. In other words, I’ll live if my floor doesn’t get swept in 2 or 3 days; but I don’t want the bathroom to go more than a week without a cleaning.
I’ve also included my “rewards” for working hard: a cup of tea, some blogging time, arts and crafts, etc.; and I’ve left the bottom open to write in big to-dos, appointments, or menu plans.
Enjoy, and happy cleaning!
