Weekly Cleaning Routine – Why You Need One In Your Life

I’m going to start off by being completely honest; You need a weekly cleaning routine. If you don’t have one, don’t feel bad, you can get by without it, but you are seriously missing out. I didn’t have a weekly cleaning routine until a few months ago, and to say it changed my life would be a bit dramatic, but it has really upped my productivity and changed the way my house looks. My cleaning routines and a bunch of decluttering, have made my house a much more enjoyable place to spend my time.

I will be doing a series about my weekly cleaning routine, on my youtube channel, so make sure you check that out. I will link the videos below as I finish them, so make sure you scroll all the way down to see those.

Some of you may be thinking, “you don’t have a job, of course you have time to clean.” You’re right, I don’t work, and I have more time to clean than I used to, but I wish I would have done this ages ago. It would have made my busy life much easier.

Making Your Own Routine

You’re routine doesn’t have to be huge and elaborate. A small amount of cleaning each day will help you stay on top of things and then you won’t be spending hours and hours cleaning on the weekend. Plus, if you have a routine, it’s not that big of a deal if you miss a day. Going one week without mopping is much better than going a month without mopping.

To get started, all you need to do is write it down. Make a list of all the chores you want to get done in a week. Then take that list and separate the chores into different days. Once I wrote down my list,  I actually followed it. Before, when I have a rough list in my head, it hardly ever happened. So write it down, and get cleaning.

Maybe you have no idea where to start. That’s where I come in. I took my list and made it pretty so you can use it to. Check mine out so you at least have a place to start. I’m betting you will find it a lot more realistic than you were thinking. Only two chores a day and that includes meal planning! Use mine exactly how it is, or take it and use it to help you make your own.

I also have a daily cleaning routine. You can check that out here.

Keep in mind, that no one is perfect and I don’t know anyone who has a clean home all the time. Sometimes, you just don’t have the time and that is OKAY! I hope my routine is helpful to you and encourages you to get into a regular routine.

“She looketh well to the way of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.” 

– Proverbs 31:27
