If you aren’t using your bullet journal to help keep a cleaning schedule you need to start. Since starting my bullet journal cleaning schedules, my cleaning routine is faster, my house stays cleaner, and I haven’t forgotten any of those little once a month or so tasks like cleaning the fridge or oven.

What I love most about keeping a bullet journal cleaning schedule is I can set up reminders in my daily or weekly spreads to stay on track with my cleaning. Additionally, I can plan cleaning for those monthly, every 3 months, and 6 month tasks.

Why You Should Track Your Cleaning
Let’s face it when you work from home, have a toddler, and have a pretty active lifestyle it can be difficult to keep track of everything you have going on. If you are like me a bullet journal or planner of some sort is an absolute necessity.
Writing out my daily cleaning tasks means I can easily stay on top of all my cleaning. I simply look at my list each morning, complete my tasks before starting work, and check off my reminder.
By tracking your cleaning you can also keep a pretty awesome schedule. If you know you have to vacuum and wash the floors you are less likely to schedule some other huge labor intensive task.
Additionally, you can schedule out things like cleaning your fridge, sweeping up the patio, or changing your furnace filter so you never forget. By scheduling your cleaning you never forget to clean dryer vents, ovens, or gutters making your home safer in the long run.

No two cleaning schedules are the same. What works for me may not work for you. I have cats and a toddler to clean up after, so I do the floors twice weekly. You may not have a toddler or any animals and may only need to do your floors once weekly.
The trick to a successful cleaning schedule is to figure out what works best for you. I like doing my laundry all in one day. However, I know plenty of people who do laundry all weekend or even one load each day.
