Keeping a clean house with a small baby can be a big task – if you ask me, even with no baby it’s not something that comes natural to me. I am lucky that I have a Grailie (my maid) that comes and helps me once a week. Specially if you don’t have an extra pair of hands it is better to have a plan to follow. It makes it easier not to forget anything and to manage your time. So I made this Cleaning Plan a few years back and I have been using and upgrading it since.
The plan I am about to show you made a huge diference in how i manage my time. I always know what I have to do that day (and it is not much, I guarantee) to keep the house spotless (as I like it). Even if i am away for a couple of days, my Hubby doesn’t have any excuses not to do what has to be done. He just needs to follow the plan – which is always at plain sight in the fridge.
So, the plan is divided in Daily, Weekly, Every 2 weeks (E2W) and Monthly chores. Surprisingly there are only 4 daily chores (one of which – the dishes – is done by my husband everyday and the rest done by me unless i am flying), add 2 or 3 chores from the other 3 categories and you have a cleaning routine of only an average of 6 daily chores. It is very easy to follow: The chart is divides in 4 weeks and the chores are allocated accordingly.
