House Cleaning Cards

I have been trying to figure out a system for cleaning my house that would work for me (something that's not too complicated). So I have been working on this idea in my head for awhile and today I went a head a put it all together!

There are five cards that each have a day of the week and specific chores that must be completed for that day. So there are the specific chores, and then either organizing an area or cleaning a "special area." Monday and Wednesday part of the day is spent organizing an area. Tuesday and Thursday part of the routine is spent cleaning a special area that doesn't get attention often like the ceiling fans.

One special area is worked on two times per week (two of these would be marked off at the end of the week). When all are marked off, I wipe it off and start all over. 

***If anyone would like for me to email ( them a copy of the template I made (in Microsoft Word) let me know. I would just post it online but eveyone's chores are probably a little different.

  10. Yes, please, send it to me.It's a great idea. I appreciate it.

    Something I just started for weeding out clothes might help someone else. So many shorts of the same color. Each day I try on all the same color shorts and only keep 1 of each color. Wrote down day of week and what color I did as sort of a reminder to keep it going. Maybe shirts will be next.
