• Project: Tidy it Thursday: My new Weekly & Monthly Cleaning Schedules with Free Printables!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1 for making the cleaning schedules, and 4 to keep up with it on a weekly and monthly basis!
• Time: 10 minutes to customize the cleaning schedules and a lot more time to complete them 😉
• Would I do it again? yes! I really need schedules…for some reason I like to know I completed what I had set out for that day, even something as simple as cleaning! For me, it works a lot better to do a daily chore/task each day versus one day committed to cleaning the whole house. I’d rather have my Saturday and Sunday to play and do fun things with my girls!
• What I would do differently: nothing except I should have done this cute schedule sooner!
• Items used: Adorably cute printables from: Money Saving Mom and Blooming Homestead
