Remember when women used to do massive Spring Cleanings? Defrost the freezer. Clean out all the cupboards. Air out the mattresses. Yeah….I’m not doing that. 😉 Especially with two houses. I’m taking a different approach. Join me for 4 Weeks of Simple Spring Cleaning.




It truly does simplify your life when you figure out a cleaning schedule that works for you. And since everyone works differently, here are 3 examples. Use them as-is….or customize them to what works best for you & your household.

Here is a general cleaning schedule from Grace Bonney at Design*Sponge:  How To Keep A Clean Home


If you prefer something already broken out into daily tasks, Trish Flake at Uncommon Designs shared a Weekly Cleaning Schedule printable from Jennifer at Delightfully Noted.  (This appeals to my anal, list-keeping brain. 😉 )

Printable from Delightfully Noted


Kim at Today’s Creative Life goes one step further and offers 2 printables: 1 with examples already written in, and 1 blank template so you can write in what works for you!

Hopefully one (or all, who knows?) of these FREE printables will encourage you to find a simple cleaning routine that works for your schedule and your household.

One of the perks of midlife is either living in an empty nest….or having kids old enough to help with all this stuff….but we all still gotta clean, am I right? 😉
