Back by popular demand, I am featuring one of my most popular posts “Getting Organized: Cleaning Calendar“!
When I posted my cleaning calendar last November, I was amazed that it went viral on Pinterest! Seriously! It’s been pinned over 136,000 times and grows daily! Holy cow! The funny thing how this came about is that one day I was desperate for a post for this blog. I went a couple of days without cooking and had nothing to show for it. So as I was cleaning that day, an idea came to mind to share with y’all how I stay on top of house cleaning as a working mom. It must’ve spoken volumes to many of you because it went viral and I constantly get emails thanking me and telling me how you can’t live without it!
I’m getting lots of requests to post a template that you can customize to fit your needs. I heard your cries and guess what? Today I am featuring this FREE template so you can create your OWN cleaning schedule. You see, not everyone has the same schedule as me–go figure, ha-ha–and they’d like to create their own schedule using my format. I hope this post will be just as beneficial as my last one.
Here is the example of my own cleaning calendar:
I came up with this cleaning calendar that fits our lifestyle to keep us on task and the house cleaned. I hope it helps you, too. Use the calendar I have or use the template below to mix it up and customize it to your needs. Hang it up on the fridge as your daily reminder. My family, of course, gets in on the chores, too. Together we can wipe everything out on the list in a jiff. (The word “jiff” is my mantra. It’s gotta be quick or I won’t do it.) Sometimes things creep up and we’re not able to get to it all–after all, that’s life right? Everything isn’t a cookie-cutter day. So I either use a Saturday to catch up, or it goes without doing and I try not to stress out over it. It’s part of life.
Here’s a copy of the template to create your own:
When you open the template, the background will be dark. Don’t worry. Download it to your computer, open it, and it will appear as a watermark. Then type in your own customized schedule.
