    Oh and to cut out time I do things whilst I'm doing other things
    Eg my kids bathroom, laundry and toilet are all interconnected so that cleaning gets done whilst kids are having a little, I do my sweep of my main room (living, dining, kitchen all connected) whilst my thermomix is plodding along, put washing on early so I can hang it out whilst DS2 sleeps and DS1 cones outside.
    Do a quick clean of my bathroom, toilet just after I've gotten ready for the day....make beds whilst brushing my teeth etc
    It all gets done pretty quickly

    I have a similar thing, except my expectations aren't as high as yours. I use my iCalendar on my phone and I share the calendar with my DH so he can see it on his phone too. That way I don't need to nag him about jobs that need to be done. He can see them there and do them if he has a spare moment. I named it 'cleaning calendar' and it can be turned off or on without affecting anything else in our calendars. Then I just add jobs that need to be done weekly, monthly, or yearly and put them on repeat. Daily jobs are pretty obvious so we leave those.

    Edited to add : We never do any house cleaning on the weekend. We save those days for fun and relaxation or an outside projects if the weather is nice.

    I keep it clean by hiring a cleaner who comes fortnightly - makes it so much easier to keep on top of and she does all the things i hate like floors, mopping, bathrooms, toilets, polishing furniture etc :-) My robo vac takes care of crumbs in between - god im lazy!

    I don't have a list or anything, just do things as I go. I find if I do the bigger things regularly like vacuum, mop, clean bathrooms etc. it doesn't take as long. It works for me, my house is generally super tidy.

    There is no method to my cleaning madness. I love it that way.

    My house is pretty clean too

    Oh how I'd love to be like you.

    I make beds and tidy up daily.
    The kitchen is clean and tidy after each meal.
    If the living area (which is our main play area) needs a vacuum it gets done on that day, otherwise once or twice weekly (I'm pregnant so it's tough at the moment).
    I don't scrub my bathroom more than once every 6 months, but it is mopped and disinfected at least weekly.
    Clothes washed daily or as needed.
    Dusting once a week.
    Windows as needed.

    I applaud you for being able to do all that but how do you find the time? I struggle to do as much as I do every day & cook & play etc etc!

    I'm very impressed with your list

    I'm super jealous Lexim. I think I should bow down to your greatness, and get some lists going myself!! Awesome idea.

    I used to be so ridiculously clean, my house looked sterile. I was so worried that a few crumbs would bother me.

    Now I'm much more relaxed, I just want to have fun and enjoy life. There are things I clean a few times a week and dishes are all was done, benches wiped and table clean every day. Other then that it's pretty all over the place, depends on when I get time, and my life is incredibly full on. I'd rather have a few hours to my self at night then clean.
