I've been using a cleaning list as a guideline for a couple of years now. My first started out in a 1/2 inch binder and I would print out new sheets every week. Well, I got tired of dragging out a binder and printing out lists.. Or just ignoring the cleaning when I didn't feel like printing things out that week. True story. I'm pretty terrible at getting my to-do list done unless I have a checklist goal right in front of me. Even truer story, I still like to ignore certain things on my checklists that I just really don't want to do. I know I'm not the only one.
Well, in order to avoid making more work for myself each week, I made myself a cleaning list that's reusable and readily accessible (to all family members). Maybe they'll help out?
I used command strips to attach the frames to the side of our fridge. Never again can I claim out of sight out of mind. Instead, it's pretty obvious what I hate cleaning and what doesn't get touched week after week. I claim that those must be Bryan's jobs.
I made a printable available for you if you'd like to try out this system, too. I made a few extra blank spots. We have two dogs so all of those spots on our lists are things like picking up dog poo in the yard, washing dog beds, being sure we give heart worm medicine as well as flea & tick, etc.
