Our summer is drawing closer to the end, and I feel like I never got into a summer time routine or schedule. Can anyone else relate? During the school year, I had a daily schedule that got everyone ready for school, out the door, and some house cleaning done. Summer has had a schedule all its own, with vacation, VBS, sports camps and visitors! I think that is what summer is all about!
I did want to share with you my "weekly household schedule". It works for me and I must say it falls into the Good Enough category!! I don't follow this exactly, but it is a good guideline that I try to follow:
Sunday: Meal plan and create grocery list. Based on sales flyer, coupons and food in the house.
Monday: Laundry (darks & lights). Grocery shop.
Tuesday: Clean bathrooms & Dust. Wash towels.
Wednesday: Clean floors.
Thursday: Laundry and any "special" cleaning / organizing jobs!
Friday: Update finances & pay bills.
Saturday: Give the dog a bath.
*** Everyday - work on clutter control, especially in the main living areas!
I hope this helps as you try and come up with a plan to "maintain" your home! It works for us, and I need to let you know that our home is NOT spotless! What schedule or plan has worked for you?
