Daily Cleaning Tasks – Friday is Catch-All Day
Yay for Friday! I designate Friday as my catch-all day. What does catch-all mean? Depending on the day and week, I use Fridays to get caught up on uncompleted tasks, menu planning, bill paying, laundry, a rotating cleaning task, or I just take the day off. I like going into the weekend with a clean house so I can soak up all the family time possible.
So how has your week been? Has the cleaning routine been helpful? I hope the extra explanation has been helpful. What’s on your catch-all list today?

So thankful to have found you! your plan is simple and achievable which is exactly what I need!
Grocery shopping today and planning to wipe down my cabinets. Also will be doing some more de-cluttering (been doing this because that’s what your book advised first which makes sense 😉 )!
I just wanted to thank you for sharing this information for free. I have two babies, two and under, and this week has been the best week we have had together in a long time. I fully attribute it to this cleaning schedule!! Thank you for that!!!
I love getting back on track, thanks for the reminders this week! Friday is my day to make everything look good for the weekend! My house feels a lot cleaner than usual this week!!
I am really liking this cleaning schedule. I am retired (recently) and so there is only me and the cat. I don’t have the stamina or the desire to clean the whole house in one day, so splitting it up works great! In a few minutes every day I have done the house work for that day and can spend the rest of the day with unstructured time (which I need to get creative.) Also, I may not vacuum or dust the whole house every week, except where the cat and I hang out the most! On Friday I did the monthly jobs, like cleaning the kitchen, or the mirrors, etc. Thank you so much for making my house clean and me guilt free!
I really like this cleaning schedule, as well. I used to spend a good chunk of my Saturday cleaning and being grumpy about it. I started this about six months ago and it has really helped me to feel a little more “even.” I enjoy my weekends a lot more. I don’t feel as stressed and get to enjoy more time with the kiddos. I work 11 hour shifts on Tues and Weds, so sometimes it’s hard to motivate myself to do the chores after dinner, homework, bathtime, etc, but it is well worth it.
super comme organisation, j’y hadere completement! merci pour tout vos conseils
dommage que le livre n’existe pas en français….
Thanks for this! Love the routine and how simple it is! Working full time with 2 kids, etc takes up a lot of time and managing the household on top of it causes unnecessary stress. Thanks for helping to take away that stress. Throwing in towels and sheets and organizing/decluttering my bedroom today as well as the floors and dusting so we can start your routine Monday!

Am so happy I found your website. I have a daycare in my home and it can get pretty dirty! I followed your weekly routine, it feels so much cleaner than before and I’m not worn out. I dont know why I thought I had to do everything in 1 day. So much easier!! Thank you!!
