Adding a cleaning schedule to your bullet journal is just smart. It’s a great way to stay on top of your cleaning, especially if it’s something you’d rather put off for a day or two.

I personally struggle with sticking to a cleaning schedule. I often get so wrapped up in work that by the time I call it quits for the day I’m just too mentally exhausted to cook dinner and clean the house. Keeping a cleaning schedule in my bullet journal allows me to break up my cleaning into small doable chunks.

What I love most about keeping a bullet journal cleaning schedule is I can set up reminders in my daily or weekly spreads to stay on track with my cleaning. Additionally, I can plan cleaning for those monthly, every 3 months, and 6 month tasks.

Before we get started here is a list of my recommended bullet journal supplies.

Why You Should Track Your Cleaning

Let’s face it when you work from home, have a toddler, and have a pretty active lifestyle it can be difficult to keep track of everything you have going on. If you are like me a bullet journal or planner is an absolute necessity.

Writing out my daily cleaning tasks means I can easily stay on top of all my cleaning. I simply look at my list each morning, complete my tasks before starting work, and check off my reminder in my daily or weekly spread.

By tracking your cleaning you can also keep up with an easier schedule. If you know you have to vacuum and wash the floors you are less likely to schedule some other huge labor intensive task. On the flip side, if all you have to do is dust your house you might feel more inclined to do another major task in the day.

Additionally, you can schedule out things like cleaning your fridge, sweeping up the patio, or changing your furnace filter so you never forget. By scheduling your cleaning and setting up reminders in your weekly and daily spreads, you never forget to clean dryer vents, ovens, or gutters making your home safer in the long run.

Cleaning Schedules

No two cleaning schedules are the same. What works for me may not work for you. I have cats and a toddler to clean up after, so I do the floors twice weekly. You may not have a toddler or any animals and may only need to do your floors once weekly.

The trick to a successful cleaning schedule is to figure out what works best for you. I like doing my laundry all in one day. However, I know plenty of people who do laundry all weekend or even one load each day.

Let’s take a look at bullet journal cleaning schedules then you can plan and create your own.

Bullet Journal Cleaning Schedules

I’m a fan of using post it notes in the bullet journal. Instead of checking off a box you can just move your post it over so you know you did the chore. Set it up the night before and you are ready to tackle your chores again the next day or the next week.
