This Keeping House Cleaning System that I have put together really works because you can adapt it and customize it to the needs of your home and those who are helping out around the house. What I love is that EVERYONE in the family knows exactly what, when and how to do their chores, because you will have created a custom chart just for them.
The challenge will be to NOT do more than is on the list. Seem crazy? This is what usually happens. You get all excited about cleaning, then you have a little time to do a little more and then a little more. Before you know it, burned out for the day and you don’t want to do anymore the next day. Sound familiar?
The key is to do a little at a time. At a steady pace and you will find magic happen in your home. If you stick to your list, you will find yourself having MORE TIME to do the things you really want to.
Here is the process
● Analyze each room and determine exactly what tasks need to be done and how often.
● Make a schedule. Decide which days would be the best to accomplish these tasks.
● Split up the tasks with others in the family and create personal chore charts.
● Create a tickler file for the bigger, not so frequent tasks.
6 different editable PDF files are included. The forms will help you set up your system so you can create chore charts for each member of the family. Family dynamics and schedules will change. No worries. Saving your files will allow you to tweak and make adjustments. That’s the beauty of the editable PDF files!
My daughter just moved out, therefore I had to rearrange and distribute her tasks, which was easy because of the alterable forms I had saved.
The printable pdf forms allow you to type in whatever information you want, customized to your needs.
Create a cute tickler file for the bigger, not so frequent tasks
Adding one or two of these cards at a time to your schedule will keep you on top of the BIG jobs.
After you complete the task, write the date on the back.
(If your kids are doing the task, it helps to put their initial). This will show accountability!
When the task is complete, put that task card in the back of that file section. As a result, this will help rotate tasks and help you eventually work through tall the tasks.
Keep some empty cards handy in your cleaning apron to jot down those jobs you don’t have cards for yet. I love my keeping house aprons! If you sew, the pattern is available here.
