Yesterday I shared with you my Daily Routine and today I am going to share with you my Weekly Schedule. Pairing these two together has proven to work for me in away that allows me to have more time for my family while at the same time keeping a clean house. Seems impossible, but its not!
As I mentioned yesterday every family is different and so each schedule should be customized to fit your own family's needs. I use Flylady as a tool to help make my schedule and keep my home in order. I just love her system so much that I want to be able to share it with other women in hopes to bless their families as well. So please allow this to bless your family, don't get caught in perfection, just do your best and don't forget to schedule time with your kids and with your husband in your Daily Schedule.
My Weekly Schedule changes from week to week, moving from the Kitchen, to the Living room, to the Dinning room, to the Bathroom, to the Bedroom, to the Entrance way, etc. This week is actually a multi-zone week. What you see in purple stays the same from week to week, and what you see in black is what changes.
Also what FlyLady recommends, and what I recommend as well is to not spend more than 15 minutes on a task. This may seem crazy, but you'll be amazed at what you can accomplish in 15 minutes. Just set a timer and get started. Don't fret over the things that don't get perfectly cleaned, your precious time with your family is more important!
Sunday: Menu Plan, Clip coupons
Monday: Take out all trash, sweep & mop all rooms, dust, Vacuum all rooms, water plant, Polish mirrors and doors, clean sheets, Grocery shop
Tuesday: Dinning room Hotspots (clean up cluttered piles), Livingroom Hotspots
Wednesday: Work Meeting, Clean up yard, Clean up front porch
Thursday: Clean up shoe/coat closet, clean up front door entrance
Friday: Finish laundry, Clean out car, Clean playroom
Saturday: Clean out fridge
Of course there will be times that I am not able to do all these things in order, and thats ok. Also there will be times where I may need to to a task twice, especially the task of mopping. Scheduling has made life a little bit easier for me, and I hope that it makes life a little easier for you too.
