Weekly Cleaning List

When it comes to cleaning, my husband and I have very different strategies. He will let things pile up until it drives me crazy and then spend a few hours cleaning to pick up after himself and put things away all at once. I put things away as I use them and do a small amount of chores everyday so that I don’t ever have to spend hours at a time to get my house clean. 

If you are like me, and want to have a clean home all the time, this post is for you. 

I have broken all of the chores that need to be done on a weekly basis into a “Weekly Cleaning List” that assigns specific tasks to specific days of the week. It also includes the items that need to be done daily. I find that doing a few chores everyday is much more efficient and feels like a lot less work than going on long cleaning binges.

You can customize this list to fit the needs of your home. I suggest that you print the list, put it inside of a sheet protector, and attach it to your refrigerator with a dry erase marker. That way it will be easy to see and you can keep track of your chores by checking them off.

Now that you have a plan of attack, let’s be realistic for a minute. Does it really matter what day of the week I vacuum my living room floors? Of course not! If I am having a lazy Monday night, I just do Monday’s chores on Tuesday. The important thing is to make sure that everything (or nearly everything) on your list is done each week at some point. 

I did not include a place in this chart for things that need to be done monthly. You can add those items into your list on the blank lines with a dry erase marker.

Here are some of the things that I try to do once per month: 

  • Wash all bedding 
  • File and sort documents (I keep a “to sort” folder on my desk) 
  • Wash shades, blinds, and windows 
  • Dust light fixtures and ceiling fans
  • Clean out trash cans 
  • Wipe light switches and door knobs

  1. I love your daily chore list! I am someone who likes to do a little each day to keep the house clean, to stay on top of chores. At least, that’s how I try to be. Truth is that sometimes my schedule falls apart and I get behind. But having a list like yours will help me to stay on top of chores better. Thanks for sharing!

      We all fall behind sometimes! Having a checklist helps make it easier to know what’s left undone.
