Realistic Cleaning Schedules

Whether it’s a daily, weekly, monthly or a room by room house cleaning schedule, I’ve had such a hard time finding a cleaning schedule or checklist that is REALISTIC for my working mom life.

What good is a cleaning schedule if I won’t stick to it, right?

Below are the most realistic cleaning schedule examples and printable checklists I could find that simplify my cleaning process.

Weekly House Cleaning Schedule

Need a cleaning schedule that is simple and just shows you a few chores to do each day of the week to keep up with your housework?

This weekly cleaning schedule below is VERY good and easy to use.

There are also a LOT of other cleaning schedules and checklists on that page, too.

Cleaning Routine Checklist

The hardest part of housekeeping for me is knowing where to start and then having a simple cleaning routine that is fast to do (and shows me immediate results without a lot of work – hey, I’m all about that instant gratification thing haha!)

This cleaning routine checklist is perfect for me!

This is what I consider a “normal mom” cleaning schedule and housekeeping routine to follow every day.

Deep Cleaning Checklist

Deep cleaning your home is an (unfortunate) reality – it’s just something we have do no matter HOW well we keep up with our daily housework.

Below is a really good deep cleaning checklist you can print and use for your Spring Cleaning or anytime you get the motivation to deep clean your home.

There’s a whole art to “speed cleaning” – and if you’ve ever been in the situation where people are coming to your house NOW, you’re probably familiar with the concept of speed cleaning your house (like I am! haha!)

In short, speed cleaning comes down to: Stash It and Trash It!

Here’s a simple speed cleaning checklist that shows how to get your house clean enough and ready for company in about 10 minutes.
