Weekly housework checklist

Weekly housework checklist, homekeeping printables, cleaning tips

 

These are the weekly housework chores that help me keep on top of cleaning and running a family home and hectic family life! These are the weekly chores that my house usually needs, but I use it more of a guide, so if something doesn’t need doing, then I skip it until the next time.

My top tips for working out a housework schedule:

  • Work out how much time you have to spend on housework each week.
  • Get other members of the household to help out and delegate little tasks to the kids.
  • Keeping a good level of general organisation and tidiness means cleaning takes much less time.
  • Divide it into manageable chunks – for me a little everyday and spreading the housework throughout the week works.
  • Work out which housework chores you think you only need to do every other week rather than every week.
  • Use cheats to help you if you need to – it’s often easier to do a quick wipe down of the bathroom using disposable antibacterial wipes which means the job’s done in literally minutes.
  • Worth remembering that if you stick to a good housework routine within a few weeks all the jobs on the weekly housework list are taking less and less time.
  • Also keep in mind that although this looks a lot of work realistically it doesn’t take a few minutes for example when you’re vacuuming to quickly vacuum a window vent or suck dust off a light shade.
