I don’t know about you, but I often get really overwhelmed with the house chores and let them pile up so badly that it literally puts my into a state of depression. It’s not pretty.
Over the years I have found that when my house is clean and tidy…I’m a happier person to be around. Don’t get me wrong…we don’t live like animals. The house is always tidy clean-ish. We do a lot of entertaining and I want my guests to feel at home in a clutter-free, clean smelling home. I just needed to find a better way to stay on top of things so that I’m not a stress case. So…we’ve decided to hire a housekeeper to come once a month to do the heavy cleaning. I personally feel that $75 once a month is vital to my sanity. Yes, I am a stay at home mom, but I also run a small business and take care of a child with autism and I just don’t have the time to clean windows and behind couches and fridges.
However I do have the time to clean a little each day and maintain that “I just had my house deep-cleaned” feel!
How do I do it? I created a “Weekly Home Blessing” chart. It has a list of the chores for each day, the meal, plan, the activities we are involved in that week and it is working out GREAT! My chores take maybe 1-1.5 hours each day. Totally doable.
And guess what??? You can get in on the Home Blessing too because I have made my chart a printable. Just click on the hyperlink or the actual chart to print your own. You can save it to your desktop and print one out at the beginning of each week.
I hope you enjoy this chart! Happy Cleaning :)
