Homemakers Cleaning Schedule

 



Hello friend!


I've spent forever trying to find a cleaning routine that would match up with my hectic schedule. I would spend

hours searching for different schedules, and I finally accepted the fact that I would not find one and would

have to make my own. 


And that's exactly what I've done. I sat down and inspected my schedule and realized I waste a lot of time

on my phone just scrolling through news feeds. I have an enormous amount of downtime that I want to take

advantage of. 


How to make your own routine


First, figure out what day or days are best for doing laundry. Is once a week enough, or should you be

doing smaller loads throughout the week? For me, once a week is enough. Once you have this planned,

use this as your anchor. 


Second, organize! Sticking to a cleaning routine became so much easier once I knew what I had and

how much of it. I no longer have to guess if I'm out of something which helps with my budget as well.


Put clothes in their proper place every night before bed. No exceptions. I started doing this before I

made a cleaning schedule and it helped me get into the groove of things.


Third, focus on the five primary rooms/areas in your home that are used the most and create a day

specifically for that place. If you get other areas done, great! If not, great! Cleaning becomes less

daunting when you set simple goals and you'll feel rewarded for completing an extra task.




How do I keep my cleaning schedule?


It's hard building a cleaning habit. It's taken me years, and I'm still working on mine. One thing

that has helped me is to remember that I am not working for my husband or myself, I'm working

for the Lord.


"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters"

Colossians 3:23


We are so blessed to have material possessions, and we should thank God that we have something

to clean. 


It doesn't seem like much, but gratitude and contentment are the key to succeeding in a

consistent cleaning routine. 


Yes, it may seem boring and monotonous, as maintenance often is. But it is possible to find joy

and contentment in doing something well for the Lord. 


Another thing I think about is that it's not that gross if you are keeping up with your mess weekly.

Things won't have time to pile up, and you'll have so much more free time than you'd think.
