I started my new job last week and I am drowning! I know, I know I’m never satisfied. Either too busy or not enough! However, it hasn’t been a particularly smooth transition. But! I’m using my systems and we’re figuring it out!

Tonight, I want to share with you my newest system for keeping the house clean. I posted a while ago how I do a full clean of my house. Tonight, I want to share how you can keep your house clean when you quite simply don’t have time for anything. This system keeps my cleaning time to under 30 minutes a day and then I never have to take a whole morning to clean, which I just don’t have time for right now.

So, here’s how I do it!

DAILY: 

-make bed (in the morning)
-do the dishes from the day (evening)
-10 minute tidy
-one weekly chore
-one every other day chore

EVERY OTHER DAY CHORES: (do one of these every day. I do them in the morning.)

-wipe surfaces in bathroom
-wipe counter tops and surfaces in kitchen

WEEKLY CHORES: (do these once a week each)

-clean floors (swiff or vacuum)
-empty trash
-clean out fridge
-scrub toilet
-clean cat box (sub something else here if you need to!)
-change sheets and do laundry

MONTHLY CHORES: (do these once per month, ideally one each week)

-dust all surfaces
-clean baseboards
-mop floors
-clean windows and mirrors

 

And there you have it! This is how I keep things looking ship shape in my apartment. If I stay on top of it, it keeps my house looking pretty clean without taking up a huge chunk of my day!
