A couple of days ago, I told you all about my most visited post: a free cleaning schedule that lets you organize a cleaning system that works for you. Today, I'm making it even easier!

Think of today's daily, weekly, & monthly cleaning schedule printables as another way to organize this popular cleaning system. It's the same content; just a different format.

Daily & Weekly Cleaning Checklists

Let's start by looking at the first page; the daily and weekly cleaning schedule page. This is the foundation of the whole system.

You'll check off the morning and evening tasks each day. You'll check off each of the weekly tasks once each week. There's a reminder on the evening tasks at the top of the printable to help you remember to do one of these weekly tasks each day.

Daily Cleaning Tasks

Under this cleaning system, each day, you'll complete the following:

Mornings:

  • Declutter for 10 minutes - You'll set a timer and declutter/clean anything you see for 10 minutes. There's no rhyme or reason to this; if it needs cleaning, clean it! If the timer hasn't gone off yet, keep going. But, when the timer stops, stop what you're doing.
  • Clean out dishwasher - You'll start the dishwasher each night, whether full or not, and clean out each morning.
  • Make beds - Get the whole family involved in this one! Each person is responsible for his/her own bed.

Evenings:

  • Declutter for 10 more minutes
  • Load & start the dishwasher - As I said, whether full of dirty dishes or not, start it. This gives you a solid reset point in your day for dishes.
  • Clean kitchen - Clean counters, put away leftovers, and sweep or vacuum the floor. Basically, get the kitchen back to its starting point in the day.
  • 1 weekly cleaning task - See weekly cleaning tasks section below.
  • 2-3 monthly tasks

Weekly Cleaning Tasks

Each day, you'll complete 1 weekly task. These are the same each week; each Monday you'll clean outside areas, each Tuesday you'll clean surfaces, etc.

  • Monday: Outside Areas
  • Tuesday: Wipe & Dust Surfaces
  • Wednesday: Clean Refrigerator & Pantry
  • Thursday: Vacuum & Mop Floors
  • Friday: Clean Toilets & Bathroom Sinks
  • Saturday: Laundry
  • Sunday: Rest Day

Monthly Cleaning Schedule Template

Finally, we get to the monthly cleaning routine pages. There are 5 of these in total.

You'll use the first four every month; they divide the home into zones (kitchen, living areas, bedrooms/outside, bathrooms/closets). There are four weeks a month, so you'll use one each week.

Occasionally (about 4 times a year), you'll have a month with 5 weeks. That's when you'll use the fifth "odd week" page.

All of your tasks are at the top of the page, with a space at the bottom to divvy those tasks up by the day. This lets you set your own daily pace. Have a busy Tuesday? Simply keep the tasks on this day to a minimum. Don't want to do anything on the weekends? You don't have to - just divide tasks among the rest of the days!

With Journey to Clean 2024, I've outlined exactly what you'll need to complete for every single day of the year via a set of handy dandy monthly calendars. Simply combine with the general morning and evening tasks, and you'll have an effective and easy cleaning system that thousands (including myself) have followed for years!

Here's the big difference in the printable set you download above and Journey to Clean: with the printables on this blog post, you'll need to fill in the cleaning tasks where you want them each month. That's great if you have a variable schedule and don't quite know what each day of each month holds until it's upon you.
