Hi friend! I’ve decided that I’m going to open up a little bit more into our lives here at Cuppfam. Daily schedules, weekly routines and any tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way. Today’s is how I do our weekly cleaning.

I’m a lazy housekeeper, and I will be the first to admit that. (My husband jokes that I’m lucky I can cook, or he’d trade me in for a maid. 😅) Anyways – I have finally found a rhythm that works for me when it comes to my cleaning schedule.

weekly cleaning

daily

Laundry is a non-negotiable that I must do everyday. I cannot stand to see it pile up, so it needs to be washed and put away every single day. A load of towels, and a load of the previous days clothes are always on the agenda.

Also, I can’t tolerate dishes in the sink, or clutter on the counters and dining table. These are tasks that I take care of each and every day in order to keep my sanity.

weekly

At the end of the week, typically Thursday or Friday I will do a whole house clean. Bathrooms, kitchen, dusting, mopping and vacuuming. Also, if I’m lucky, I will wrangle the girls into cleaning their rooms as well. I’ll include a slightly pared down list of my weekly cleaning : all 3 bathrooms, every kitchen surface, dining room table and chairs wiped down, dust, vacuum, mop, wash all the bed linens, clean out the car, and make sure all garbage is taken out.

tips

I am a paper planner girl – this means that no matter how digitized my life becomes, I will always choose and prefer an actual pen and paper planner to see my list of to dos. I currently am using this one by Day Designer, and absolutely love the layout. Because it is a daily planner, the added space for each day has been of tremendous use.

Another tip, if you are like me and only had a full size vacuum, like a Dyson – it’s so heavy to bring up and down the stairs all the time, so I grabbed this one by Hoover, and it rivals the Dyson without the heft. I can get my whole house done and then some on one charge and it never loses suction.

in closing…

That’s a small peek into my home life. Not a comprehensive picture yet – but I’ll get there as I figure out how to better navigate this space. As always, for taking the time to read. Have an amazing day!
