It’s day 3!  How am I doing?  Ummm…well, so far I’m loving it!  Ask me again in about a week and my answer may vary slightly!

Soooo… to go along with yesterday’s post, I thought today I could give you five more sources of daily/monthly/yearly cleaning lists in case mine isn’t quite your style and you’d like some more options.  These are also great sources if you’d like to come up with your own list but aren’t quite sure where to start.  I definitely used some of these to help me with mine (hence the addition of “sleeping in” on Saturdays!  Love that!!!).

5 daily cleaning lists

  1. Michelle Lea Designs (note: she also has several other pretty awesome {and free} printables!)
  2. First Home Love Life – this is not a room-by-room, bur rather groups certain jobs together that have to be done all through the house
  3. Gone Like Rainbows – this leads you to an Etsy shop to buy the files, FIY.
  4. My Design Chic – I don’t believe this one is properly sourced, but I wasn’t able to find the original, sadly.
  5. A Teaspoon of Happiness – super well designed, but may not be printer friendly.

There are about a gazillion other lists I could have included here for you.  They are EVERYWHERE, and most people will offer you the files for free.  A Bowl Full of Lemons has a page dedicated to people linking their free printable stuff for you, so it’s worth checking out.  If you’re looking for super quality files for all of your home organizing needs and you don’t mind paying for them, I’d suggest checking out Clean Mama’s shop.  She also offers some free options! (Just so we’re clear, no one is paying me to promote any of these.  I just happen to have looked at all of these myself before and thought they were all worth sharing.)

And there you have it!

I hope this inspires you (and me!) even further in getting organized and avoiding marathon cleaning for an entire day!

If you missed my very own cleaning list files yesterday, here they are again: weekly blank and full chore lists, monthly blank and full chore lists. They are PDF files you can easily download and print on letter-sized paper.

Happy cleaning!!

      HAHAHA I know! I’m getting this weird rash around my hands though, and I think it’s coming from not touching anything new in the last few days. Should I be worried?

    Thanks for sharing these resources. So many purdy options for me and my type A self. Now, I have no excuse whatsoever not to have a cleaning schedule. (Darn it!) ;-) Oh, and I loved seeing First Home Love Life on here. She’s a central Florida blogger, too! Holla’!

    Thalita, thank you so much for listing my cleaning checklist and for sharing yours! It is awesome and I’m always tweaking mine… also I showed your post to my husband and he instructed me to point out that just because I have a fabulous checklist doesn’t mean that I use it…. I think that he’s trying to imply something not so nice ;) haha. thank you again. I love your blog.

      Oh my gosh, no problem!!! It was such a good list! I have already made a few changes to mine… to be expected I suppose! Especially with seasons changing. HAHA your husband has a good sense of humour (and you too, obviously!). We’re ok with using it so far, but we’ll see how long that lasts!!! Thanks so much for coming by to comment!!! I love YOUR blog!! :)
