Cleaning the house and keeping on top of all the housework can be overwhelming and totally never ending – unless you have a plan!

If you want to change how you go about cleaning your home, so you are in control rather than your home controlling you – then you’re in the right place!

how to create a cleaning schedule - what to do and when cleaning your home



  • It’s never done completely
  • I always feel like I’m trying to catch up
  • I can’t get ahead, or get a system that works for me – I’m just too busy
  • I get things done as they need doing – it’s exhausting
  • I never feel OK to have people round because my home is never ready

Housework is one of those things that, no matter how hard we try, will always be there.

So we may as well take control back and help ourselves.

And what better way than to create a plan that’s totally based around you and your own homes needs, that works for you with the time you have available.

It’s not necessarily about perfect, it’s not about miracle working, it’s about making your home clean enough for you at any given point on any given day – so that you can lead the life you want without feeling stressed out all the time with the jobs you need to do.

Sound good?

Why not go through the following easy step by step guide to create your very own cleaning schedule – and reclaim your home once and for all!



Yes, really!

Contrary to popular thought, a cleaning schedule doesn’t add hassle and stress to the house – it takes it away.

If you never quite know what the next job is, and whether the house is clean enough, then even subconsciously you are looking around for all the jobs that need doing (even when there may be nothing to do).

You end up in a constant state of not knowing what needs to be done, and that’s just draining.

It’s time to get to grips with the house once and for all.

Creating your own schedule means that you can design it around what works for you – and you then don’t have to think about it, just get what needs doing on what days out of the way and ticked off.

No more guilt about what else you should be doing – you know that you will be getting to everything at the perfect time for you.


Step by step easy to follow guide to creating a cleaning schedule that works - totally custom to you and your homes needs so you have more time and less stress when it comes to cleaning your house

Now that I’ve convinced you to give a schedule a go (hopefully!) – then let’s work through the steps together.

    I have found that my teen and pre-teens do so much better if I give them a list if chores and a deadline to have them done. It teaches them how to plan their times (they are notorious procrastinators like me) it keeps me from nagging them all the time and makes our house less hectic…planning the chores out like this example shows would work well if you are single, or can be delegated amongst mom, dad, and a herd if kiddos

    Hi I would love to know if you have a printable for the cleaning schedule? If I don’t have it written down and visible I just forget someday what I’m meant to be doing. Thanks

      Hi Marni – I have a cleaning list in my Home File, along with the printouts for the weekly plan, where you can add in your schedule of cleaning tasks, but thanks for the suggestion as I may add an extra printable for a separate cleaning schedule all of it’s own – watch this space!
