Daily Cleaning Schedule
Daily Cleaning Schedule
I’ll start off by admitting that I was never the most organized person in the world. I HATED cleaning, and still do, but I’ve found my own rhythm. Once I found out I was pregnant, I knew that I had to better my cleaning and organizational skills for the sake of my family and mental health. There, truly, is nothing better than a clean home and an empty laundry basket.
Now that I’m a mom, I appreciate every little advice I get from my own momma. One of the best advices she has given me is to maintain a daily cleaning schedule. My daily cleaning schedule, shared below, keeps my home in check during the week. I refuse to leave all my cleaning and laundry for one day of the week, it’s just too overwhelming. I’d rather spend an hour a day keeping up with cleaning than spending an entire day sobbing at how much I hate cleaning. Plus I love to spend my weekdays/weekends with my family to enjoy the outdoors.
Let’s just be real though, my house isn’t always clean. I have amazing days, where everything is impeccable and in it’s place. And on other days, it looks like a category 5 hurricane has passed through my entire home. Regardless, I try my best in continuing my cleaning schedule, no matter how tired and sick I am.
** On Saturdays and Sundays, I stay away from cleaning, since those days are strictly reserved for laziness.**
Counters might be cleaned on a everyday basis but I, sometimes, go days without any messes or spills.
I unload the dishwasher every morning and load it as the day goes on. I run it right before I head to bed.
Luckily for us, we have a garbage valet service that picks up our trash at our front door. I usually place the garbage outside our home no later than 7pm.
Most of my cleaning and organizing is done within the last two hours before I head to bed. I usually wait for my husband, Edgar, to get home from work, so I can wash his work clothes from that day. While clothes are washing, I then continue on with what’s left.
Find what works for you and stick with it! I promise, you will feel happier, less stressed, and anxiety-free when you can worry less about cleaning and organizing your home.

I hope that this helps for those of you who feel completely overwhelmed by the thought of cleaning. Again, find what works for you, whether it’s early in the morning or late at night.
