So I need a ‘daily chores’ list


Most suggested ‘daily routines’ that I’ve read make keeping a house clean sound like rocket science, torture or both. I’m hoping to build a quick routine that I do everyday that will make my life tolerable and eliminate the ‘Snapping duck poop, I have someone coming over’ frantic clean up that I ALWAYS need to do here. I also don’t want to be driven to drink by lunchtime.

Attempt at Daily Chores list one:

  1. Make sure everything in kitchen is clean and put away (after the renovation this will hopefully just be load/unload dishwasher)
  2. Vacuum if required
  3. Make all beds
  4. Spray and wipe over bathrooms quickly
  5. Quick swish of toilets
  6. At least one load of laundry washed, dried, folded and away
  7. All toys in toyboxes

Seriously, if I could achieve all of this every day around my other work and Boy3 toddling after me for the next 7 days it would be a start.

Silent readers out there – do you have a routine? If so, tell me what it is or share where you found it. This little piggy wants to learn!!

  1. My children are older, so I do not have the daily struggle anymore. I used to have a list of things that I could do in 5 min. and another list for things that I could do in 10 min. You would be surprised how many things can be done when you have just a few minutes. Every switch plate in the house can be wiped down in under 10 min. for instance. It also helped me to use the old fashioned approach of certain jobs on particular days. Sure, there are things that have to be done daily, but it is good to tackle different things on different days rather than to take on too much on any given day. Best of luck with your list.

    • LOVE your ideas. That might be my next approach. The little people are 16 months and nearly 5 so I’m constantly fighting the fact they follow me around creating more mess! P.S – Love your blog!
