I need cleaning help...

No, I do not need you to come clean my house, but I would like some advice. Although, Max was telling me that the man he worked with got his wife Molly Maid once a month! WOW, what a treat - maybe some day!!

In an effort to make my life a little less complicated I am trying to write out a cleaning schedule. There are the usual things that you do everyday, but its the other stuff I want to put on a calendar. So, if I know that monthly I need to wash my walls, clean out my gutter (etc.) I can put them on a rotating calendar so that I don't end up trying to get everything done in one weekend. This way I can also schedule weekends off, and time to get projects done. So, what chores do you do daily, weekly and monthly. If you have some sort of schedule or helpful tool, could you let me know where to get it, or email it to me??? Thanks!

By the way, for those of you wondering - I chose the pedi over the fridge!

You totally stole my post! Lol! I'm wading through the same things right now. What needs to be scheduled, and what should just be done as the need arises? I'm looking forward to seeing what people say!

Thats funny - The one person that I thought would already have this on a schedule was you, I guess we will have to hope on Sarah!

Hee hee....I was counting on Sarah and Kjerste for this too. Funny. This is one area I need work in for sure.

Weekly? I sweep the wood floors, clean the bathrooms, do laundry, and generally pick up. Of course, i should try to pick up every day... :/

Ok, so yes I do have a list, that I am sure I used at one time or another-now not so much. I would be happy to send it to you. It is far too lengthy to put in this comment.
Basically I breakdown into-daily, weekly, biweekly, monthly, quarterly, simi anually, and yealy.
I will email it to you later.
I think I originally got the list form martha stewart magazine and then tweaked it for my own house.

I knew you would not dissappoint! Thank you!

I think we all need a copy of that list!

My mom, your grandma, had a file box with index cards for each room and how to clean - what got done daily weekly etc. I think I have it permanently etched in my brain!!!
