Housework certainly isn’t fun but it is much easier when you can follow a daily, weekly, monthly and annual routine to get things done. Knowing when you should do something most certainly helps! So to help you form your own schedule, I’m going to share with you my own!
These are the things I try to do on a daily basis to keep on top of the basic chores.
- Wash, dry, fold & putaway washing
- Wipe down kitchen benches and dining table
- Sweep kitchen floor
- Vacuum lounge and hallway
These are things I try to do on a weekly or sometimes twice weekly basis. Different tasks can be done on different days so that they don’t overwhelm you.
- Clean microwave
- Change bedding and wash dirty ones
- Vacuum bedrooms
- Clean bathrooms/toilets
- Mop kitchen and bathroom floors
- Wipe mirrors.
These are things I try to do on a monthly basis. Do a different task each week.
- Clean oven
- Wipe down skirting boards and door frames
- Wash windows
- Wipe down photo frames
- Clean refridgerator
These are things that I try to do on an annual or twice annual basis. Spring or summer is usually when I get these done.
- Clean walls
- Clean ceilings
- Wash curtains
- Have carpets cleaned
- Wash inner bedding and vacuum beds
- Wipe down shelving
- Declutter unneeded items
