    Default Do you have a cleaning schedule?

    Do you have a schedule to get all your cleaning done or do you just do what you see needs doing?

    I'm thinking of making a bit of a schedule but I suck at routine so I may just be waisting my time.

    Check out the flylady online. I'm slowly getting there and it's fantastic. She teaches those of us who are hopeless at routines how to get good at it!!

    Not really but I put washing on either first thing in the morining or an hour before bed then I hang it out. Dishwasher goes on before I get into bed and gets emptied the next day some time.

    Bathroom/laundry I clean as I go.

    Floors get mopped just before we go out or just before bed.

    The boys make their beds when they get up and we make ours. Dishes are always done before departing in the morning and before we go to bed at night. I do a load of washing every second morning and it's hung out before I leave the house then taken off the line and folded up that afternoon. Bin is emptied every night. Floor swept daily. Much easier to clean as we go.
