Split Cleaning Between Upstairs And Downstairs With This Cleaning Schedule
Jesse's days are very full with children so young, but she has found a plan that works for her.
I like that she is realistic in how much she hopes to accomplish in a day with two little ones, and how she is flexible enough to stop and start the task instead of waiting until she has enough time to do it all at once.
As you know if you have ever taken care of very young children, you will never get enough time to do it all at once! See Jesse's schedule below:
I am a mom of 2 under the age of 2, so my days are pretty hectic. I also have a fairly large home. That's why I split my house cleaning up between the upstairs and downstairs for the bigger tasks.
Here's my schedule.
- Monday - Wash bedding, change sheets, clean up bedrooms/toyroom
- Tuesday - dust / vacuum / mop upstairs floors, and also deal with paperwork for the week
- Wednesday - wash towels and bathmats, clean all bathrooms
- Thursday - dust / vacuum / mop downstairs floors
- Friday - kitchen cleanup, clear out fridge/freezer, mop, wipe down counters
- Saturday - grocery shopping (so DH can watch the kids)
- Sunday - nothing
I also do certain things everyday, like an additional load of laundry and picking up toys for about fifteen minutes in the afternoon.
Because my kids are so young each day's activities can take all day, because I just start and stop as I can, before they need me again.
I also get a lot done during their nap, if I don't take one myself! :)
