Home Management Binder: Cleaning {Free Printables!}

So back to getting our Home Management Binder on track and finished, here is the exciting section of cleaning....{yawn}. If you've missed a post, you can click to check out Section 1: Calendar & Contacts and Section 2: Meal Planning. Like the other two sections, I'm making all of the forms I created FREE!

I personally had a hard time starting this section, probably because its my least favorite. One thing I love about our house is that it's big and we can grow into it in the future. One thing I hate about our house is that it's big and I have to clean it :). Because of my OCD tendencies, we have a cleaning schedule already in place in our house, we've had this same schedule since we got married just because it is what works for us. Below is our weekly cleaning checklist:

Again, this schedule works great for our house. Knowing that everyone has different schedules and different needs, I did upload a blank version of this form so you can write in your own daily task. Now, on top of these scheduled daily cleaning, we do also wipe down the kitchen every night after dinner and load the dishwasher when necessary. If we have plans one night then we simply just play catch up on another night in the week. Please don't get the impression that our house is spotless and clean every day - it's not. We live here but this is a schedule we like to keep in check.

The next form I created was a monthly check list - this is for the task we always forget about. Checking the A/C Filter - yeah we always forget that. Actually, when I was creating this form and I typed that task I immediately asked the hubs when was the last time we changed it. Uh, it had been awhile - like four months. The filter we purchase says you can change it every three months, but with two furry additions to our house we have noticed its best if we change it monthly.

Right now that is all for the cleaning section. I do plan on putting my spring cleaning in a checklist form - but since we have awhile until that needs to be done I will wait on that one. Once I create it and update it to my Home Management Binder I will make that printable FREE, too! Don't forget to check back next Monday for the next Section in my Home Management Binder, I plan on tackling our spending plan aka budget.

So, if anyone is out there - are you following along and creating a Home Management Binder or are you updating a current system you are using?
