Monthly cleaning schedule

In my last post I showed you how I'm using the daily goals column in my Plannerisms planner's weekly pages for summer planning.

Today I'll show you a new method I'm using to track my cleaning schedule each month. I'm using the right page of the lined pages between each month's calendars in my Plannerisms planner to map out which cleaning tasks need to happen each week of the month:

I like this method because it allows me to see what needs to be done each week. I tend to put off things that just need to be done once per month. Actually, I tend to put off most cleaning tasks! This allows me to see on one page when I last did each task and when it needs to be done again. If I slack and don't do the task on the designated week, I have to arrow it over to the next week. When I see my Arrows Of Procrastination I know I need to step it up!

Do you use a system to track household cleaning tasks?


  1. Love it, Laurie! You come up with the best ways to track goals.

    1. Thanks Patty! School just let out last week here, and already I'm feeling like keeping the house even reasonably tidy with the kids at home is like shoveling snow in a snowstorm! I'm training the kids to clean up after themselves as much as possible and trying to avoid messes in the first place, which isn't easy!
