There are so many ways that I use my journal to help organise mundane tasks… however, in the most part, scheduling home chores had completely passed me by!
Last weekend I was ‘busy’ scrolling through pages on Instagram and stumbled across MrsHinchHome a page run by Sophie Hinchcliffe who admits she is “cleaning mad”… Sophie has 1.2 million followers who call themselves the #hincharmy!
Sophie’s page and dedication to the cleaning cause inspired me to create a cleaning schedule of my own!
I started by thinking about what tasks I needed to complete in the home and how frequently they needed to be done. I jotted down on a post it note all of the tasks I could think of and found that they fell into 4 main categories; daily, weekly, bi weekly and monthly.
I then used these categories to create my master page, shown below:
For the weekly, bi weekly and monthly jobs I have added in a tracker at the base of each box so that I can keep track of when things are done.
I then added it a little quote “I love cleaning – said no-one, ever” and some fun doodles of cleaning supplies to jazz it up a little.
Gemma’s page encourages you to #rockthehousework in 30 minutes a day… I really love this approach of getting things done by breaking it down into small manageable tasks… kind of similar to the Bullet Journal approach right??
So as I’m writing this post it is #cleansheettuesday so I intend to get up off the sofa, get those beds stripped and tick that task off of my to do list for the week!
A huge thankyou to @mrshinchhome and @the_organised_mum for their inspiration! If you want to check out their blogs/pages I have popped their links below!
