This is a gift from me, Taylor, written especially for all my readers. All you have to do to claim this ebook is subscribe to the newsletter of the sister site of this one, Household Management 101.
If you've already subscribed to the Household Management 101 newsletter you can still get this 40 page ebook. Just reply to any of the emails from me and I'll be happy to send you a copy!
I've now included this checklist ebook as a resource when working on the Create A House Cleaning Schedule Challenge here on the site. In addition, it's part of the daily Declutter 365 missions, on the day your mission is to to create personalized cleaning checklists for your home.
The purpose of these checklists is to help you (or someone else who is cleaning, such as a spouse or child) remember everything that needs to get done to satisfactorily clean that particular room of your home.
How this might work in practice is that on your daily cleaning schedule you've got, "clean the kitchen," and you look at your kitchen cleaning checklist and see the tasks you should do daily to keep your kitchen clean. Then, perhaps once a week you've decided to do a few more deep cleaning tasks for the kitchen. Well, again look at your cleaning checklist and see what additional tasks need to be done weekly in the kitchen.
You can do this for each room of your home you choose. I find it most effective to do this for the kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms, but you can do them for any room you want.
Eventually, once you get in the habit of cleaning more you won't need to look as often at your checklists, but they're there (kept in your household notebook) so anyone in the house can know what needs to be done.
Here are the checklists you'll find in this printable ebook.
In addition, you receive three blank schedules that you can fill out, one for daily cleaning, one for weekly cleaning, and one for your laundry schedule. These can be personalized for your own life, family, time and energy levels, and your home, using the checklists as a guide.
As an added bonus you'll also receive a cleaning supply checklist that you can post in your cleaning closet, or anywhere else, to make sure you have all your cleaning supplies on hand when you need them.
