Time to Put on Martha

Time For Martha

This week in my Time For Martha series, I’ll be looking at my weekly chore list.

We have daily chores that everyone does:

  • everyone has a room downstairs that gets tidied and vacuumed/swept every day
  • everyone has Team Work in the kitchen that gets done every day

But, I’ve never been consistent with weekly chores, Martha has never been my strength. The children and I normally do a monthly deep clean in a room (our school schedule is three weeks on, one week off and on our off week we deep clean a different room), but those weekly chores sort of get done when I get around to it.

Not Any More!

I’ve come up with a tentative schedule for my needs that I’ve begun implementing this past week. It looks like this:

  • Monday: grocery shopping
  • Tuesday: bathrooms/weekly baking
  • Wednesday: bedrooms/hallway
  • Thursday: laundry
  • Friday: kitchen
  • Saturday: living room/den
  • Sunday: menu planning

I’m still in the midst of figuring out all that I want to accomplish each week, more ways to Put On Martha. I’m also hoping that keeping on top of the deeper maintenance each week will allow our once-a-month deep cleaning to give me more room to actually get some things fixed or re-decorated.

How do  YOU order your weekly cleaning? I’d love to hear your input.
