Do you ever feel like you’re in a never-ending cycle of cleaning your home and putting things away?
Sometimes keeping a tidy home can consume hours upon hours of your time, time that you’d much rather spend doing fun things with your loved ones.
I’m right there with you. Cleaning the bathrooms or washing clothes is the last thing I want to do when I could be spending time with Josh.
Want to know how I streamline my homemaking routines so I have more time for other activities? I stick to a daily homemaking schedule!
Rather than spending a whole day trying to catch up on housework, I prefer to spread my tasks across a whole week. The job seems much less daunting, I don’t get burned out as quickly, my house stays tidy, and I get to spend more time with Josh.
I’m sure you’d like to streamline your homemaking routines too, so let me share with you the homemaking schedule that works wonders for me! You can also grab the free printable homemaking schedule so you can post it on your fridge for easy reference.

Wrapping It Up
Sticking to a homemaking schedule is an excellent way to simplify your homemaking routines. By spreading the work over several days, you never have to spend all day doing chores, and you have more time to spend doing the things you actually want to do.
I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me!
If you’d like to streamline your homemaking routines so you have more free time to do the things you actually want to do, then give this homemaking schedule a try. You can always tweak it to fit your needs if you need to.
Happy homemaking, my friend!
