Planner Perfect's Quick Clean Plan


Keeping up the house as busy moms is a tough job, isn't it? 

And, if you get behind on any of this house cleaning you can just forget it! It piles up as if to mock you, creating feelings of failure and frustration, and to top it all off, and I'm going to be brutally honest with you, I hate cleaning. 

There. I said it. 

But this is not to be mistaken for my love for a clean home! A clean home makes my mood enlightened, I'm a much more patient mother, things are of course, tidy, and it makes the mood of my home more calm and less stressed.

 
A clean home is something us moms all strive to have and I've devised a plan that keeps my home clean (As long as I adhere to my plan!) by breaking it up into daily increments so it doesn't hurt so much and it is wonderful! I also have an A.M and P.M. Quick Clean Plan, that keeps me on track so I don't start blogging, reading my email, or even diving into my homeschooling day until I've got it done. Once the basic daily is done and my day's chore, my days will vary and this routine keeps my home clean and organized and ready for the day I have planned.

Change these around a bit to fit your life if need be. If you don't need to make any adjustments, great! But always know that you can make changes to the cleaning plan, this will eliminate feelings of failure if it's not working. Remember, it's your life, create a regimen you can stick with and get it in your goal section of the month you begin in your planners! 

The A.M. and P.M. Quick Clean Routine are to be done, daily, and each day will have its own cleaning chore. Don't forget to recruit your kiddos when you can. They can be super at helping tackle the home (sometimes).

Planner Perfect's Quick Clean Plan


A.M. Daily Routine:
Dishwasher unloaded
Breakfast/dishes cleared and in dishwasher
Beds made/rooms tidy
Get ready for the day

P.M. Daily Routine:
Dinner dishes cleared and kitchen cleaned. Dishwasher loaded and turned on.
10 minute tidy...everyone in the pool! Get all family members to help pick-up the family room or main hub where you hang out; this makes it fresh and clean to wake up to.

Monday Clean: Dust the furniture throughout the house and all wood surfaces. Polish once a month.  

Tuesday Clean: Vacuum the house. I like to do the upstairs in the morning and down the stairs and just work my way around until done. If I don't get it all done in the morning...I wait until I can and finish up in the evening.

Wednesday Clean: 2 bathrooms. I have 2 on my upper level so I tackle only these today. This is a full deep clean washing the floor on my way out. 

Thursday Clean: 2 bathrooms. Finish up any bathrooms you have left, if any. 

Friday Clean: Windex all mirrors and glass doors. Windows once a month.

Saturday Clean: Blinds dusted, wash hard wood floors and do my laundry. I do laundry on one day from stem to stern.

Sunday: No clean! This is one of the days I can get some of my personal goals accomplished as well as get my grocery list for my Monday grocery day.


There you have it! Your game plan for a clean home and it's almost easy! Almost.

  1. Jenny,
    I started reading about Flylady a little over a year ago. It changed the way I keep my house clean forever! You can read all about my journey on my blog here if you like:

    My most favorite cleaning tip is my daily Swish & Swipe. Everyday I swish out the toilet bowl and swipe the lid and seat. It takes me a total of 5 minutes to do three bathrooms (DD does her own). The toilets never get out of hand and always company ready. :)

  2. I just got rid of my cleaning lady (she was great, just couldn't justify the expense anymore).

    Since I have to start cleaning my own house now, I'm going to try this, seems pretty manageable, although I will miss coming home Wednesday afternoons and having the whole house be immaculate (at least for a little while).

  3. I had a cleaning lady, too. I do miss not having my house deep cleaned by someone else!! But thought the same way about the money for our family as well. This has worked for me well, and if you have children, I delegated it out to them too. (It's on my chore chart post.) Each child take a part of the house to dust on Mondays, etc...this really helps get all the jobs done.

    Let me know how it works for you or what you did to make it better. I'd love to hear!

  4. I've been struggling quite a bit with the sorry state of my home. Between the demands of mommyhood, a mentally & physically handicapped daughter, a live in mother in law with Alzheimers, blogging, and working from home I feel like I can not get caught up! Your quick clean chart makes it seem so easy... I'm like ok, where's the rest? This seems so easy! I am going to put my best foot forward and give it a good shot!

  5. Hi Kim!
    Well, God bless you! You do have your hands full...I hope this plan works, do let me know;) Be sure to buy yourself some new cleaning supplies and maybe some new candles, too, to pump you up and get you in the mood to tackle. Once you get the system down, it's smooth sailing!

    Hugs,
    Jenny
