MY 45MIN CLEANING ROUTINE | WORK FROM HOME WIFE
Getting into a cleaning routine will help me so keeping my sanity. As you know a big part of homemaking is cleaning. And to be honest it can be really tiring and overwhelming.
I am still finding my way in my role as a wife. We’ve been married for almost 2 years now. (Which I am embarrassed to admit that I still don’t have my life together after almost 2 years of marriage)
But if you are reading this and you are married, living with another person who has different ways of thinking, doing and having different priorities can be,

I am also a work from home wife and my surroundings play a huge part in how I feel on a daily basis. A clean and tidy home is what I strive for. I don’t mean Pinterest perfect all of the time, I mean generally, everything should have its place.
To be honest, I don’t mind doing the cleaning, laundry and all the things that come with homemaking. I enjoy it most of the time. I actually wouldn’t mind being a full-time homemaker.
But let’s keep it real. Bills need to be paid, and life is soo expensive that it is really difficult to live a comfortable life on one income. I do admire those who make it work on one income though! Keep it up!
THIS IS WHERE THE CLEANING SCHEDULE COMES IN
Because I work from home, I used to dedicate my Saturdays to cleaning. But, I hate dedicating my Saturdays to cleaning. Not that I hate cleaning, but how much time it takes to clean if I do it once a week!
Therefore, I decided to put myself on a cleaning routine to distribute all the tasks throughout the week. My goal is to spend only 30 – 45 minutes a day cleaning.
MY CLEANING SCHEDULE
Monday: BATHROOMS; make the bed; wipe counters; clean counters; clutter; clean kitchen; vacuum floors/sweep kitchen
Tuesday: DUST HOUSE; make the bed; wipe counters; clean counters; clutter; clean kitchen; vacuum floors/sweep kitchen
Wednesday: LAUNDRY; make the bed; wipe counters; clean counters; clutter; clean kitchen; vacuum floors/sweep kitchen
Thursday: WASH FLOORS; make the bed; wipe counters; clean counters; clutter; clean kitchen; vacuum floors/sweep kitchen
Friday: GRACE DAY; make the bed; wipe counters; clean counters; clutter; clean kitchen; vacuum floors/sweep kitchen
Saturday: LAUNDRY; make the bed; wipe counters; clean counters; clutter; clean kitchen; vacuum floors/sweep kitchen
Sunday: REST DAY; make the bed with fresh sheets; clean kitchen
Fridays are Grace Days – this means that I do the things that I didn’t get time to do in the week. If I didn’t put away all the clutter, I will do it that day. Or didn’t put away the laundry I will do it Friday. You get the picture!
FREEBIE – PRINTABLE
I made myself a cute checklist to cross off all the things that need to be done every day. Crossing things off the list will help me stay accountable and remind me what to do each day.
Please note the checklist is an A5 size
Basically, this is just a daily to-do list. I still need to figure out when it will be suitable to deep clean and fitting that into my schedule. But this is a start to keep the house under control for my sanity.
You are probably wondering why I vacuum every day? Well, it is simple really – to keep the pet hair under control! LOL. We have two fur babies who think they are the queens of this house!
