Hi everyone. This is Addi from Frugal Fanatic and today I’m going to be sharing with you a free printable weekly cleaning checklist I created for you!
Free Printable Weekly Cleaning Checklist
I am always getting asked the question, “How do you do it all?”
Let me first start out by saying I do NOT do it all. There are plenty of days where my house is a mess and you cannot even walk into my laundry room because of the heaping piles of clothes. But, with that said, I do try to stay as organized as possible to help me make it through each day. I am very detail-oriented and love having a daily to-do list.
With three young boys, two dogs, and working from home as a blogger, I have definitely been struggling with trying to keep my house clean. It is hard to set aside time just to clean. So, to help me stay on top of managing my house, I have created this totally adorable weekly cleaning checklist.
If you are like me and struggle to keep your house clean, then you will love using a cleaning schedule. There are so many times that I set out to clean a particular room and then get distracted. This new printable will help me to stay focused on each cleaning task.
I have broken up the weekly cleaning checklist into separate days except for on the weekends. I combined Saturday and Sunday because I personally try not to clean over the weekend unless I have to.
I left the checklist blank so that you could fill in each of the tasks you want to do. The purpose is to create a schedule that works for you. Even though I do a load of laundry a day, you may not, so I did not want to fill it in for you. Your cleaning schedule will be unique to your lifestyle.
Once you start using it, you will start to find a nice cleaning routine. You can use this checklist on a monthly basis so that you are completing the same cleaning tasks on the same days. For example, Mondays may be set aside to clean your toilets, windows, or even for changing bed linens. This way you are cleaning each item at least once a week.

To help you get started I have made a list of items that you can add to each day of the week:
Wipe down appliances
Clean out fridge
Wipe down cabinets, windowsill, door handles, light switches and baseboards
Wipe down sink
Disinfect light switches and door handles
Wipe down baseboards and cabinets
Wipe down and disinfect fan, blinds, windowsill, door handles and baseboards
Wipe down windowsills, door handles, light switches, baseboards and remotes
Some of my everyday tasks include:
Wipe kitchen counters
Change towels & wash cloths
To get started, print out this blank weekly cleaning schedule and figure out the tasks you want to be cleaned each day. You may find it easier to break it down by each room in your house. For example, you may clean your bathrooms on Tuesday and your kitchen on Wednesday. This is one of the reasons why I left this printable blank. It will be easier for you to write down a schedule that works best for you and your family.
I cannot wait to get started with this cleaning checklist myself as well. Not only will my house be much cleaner, but I adore using printables. Win-Win!
