Tidy Up Tuesday- Weekly Cleaning Schedule

Tidy Up Tuesday

I’ve been saying it for a while, but now I’m doing it.  I need a weekly cleaning schedule again.  I’ve done it in the past and it has worked well.  It’s just that when I look at my calendar/schedule I just get overwhelmed.  But perhaps if I keep it simple that won’t happen?  I’m going to give it a go.  If you have a weekly cleaning schedule would you please share it?  I’m sure mine will need some tweaking Winking smile

We have daily chores that I’ve divided among the household, which include:

  • Pick Up Living Room
  • Vacuum Living Room
  • Pick Up Dining Room
  • Sweep and Mop Dining Room
  • Dishes
  • Clean off Counters
  • Guest Bathroom

So for the more thorough-

Monday:  Clean out Fridge, Grocery Shopping, Laundry

Tuesday:  Master Bathroom and Bedroom, Bed Linens

Wednesday:  Sweep Walk, Back Deck, Laundry

Thursday:  Mow Grass, Yardwork

Friday:  Dust, Tidy Babies’ rooms, Laundry

Saturday:  Kitchen Clean Up

Sunday:  Menu Planning


  1. Mine goes something like this:

    Monday: Clean family room; Wash hubby's uniforms

    Tuesday: Clean bathrooms; Wash towels/linens

    Wednesday: Clean family room/kitchen/Wash kitchen towels/cleaning rags/throw rugs

    Thursday: Clean girls' rooms/Wash their laundry

    Friday: Clean bedroom/Wash laundry/Change linenes

    Saturday: Grocery shopping

    Sunday: Menu planning

    And then there is the what I call my Daily Do's:
    Sweep kitchen floor
    Vacuum carpets
    Wipe down tables and countertops in kitchen and bathrooms

  2. Have been thinking the same thing, but our spring schedule will be completely different than what it has been, so don't know how it will all look at the end as far as what day each happens, but here is my list:
    Daily - dust bust edges, wipe down toilets, wipe down bathroom/kitchen counters, wipe down dining room table, straighten all main areas, dust one room each day, and a load or two of laundry. Weekly - sweep back porch, menu plan/grocery list/grocery shop, vacuum throughout, clean showers, change sheets, clean out fridge, and ironing. I also have monthly which is things like straighten drawers/closets, deep clean stove top, etc.


I love your comments! Thank you so much for taking the time to drop me a note :)
