    Everyday but not big stuff everyday.

    Everyday I pick up, vacuum (somtimes twice), sweep, clean the bar in the kitchen, change the trash (if it needs it.), litter box duty, ect.

    Everyweek I dust & do laundry. (Laundry usually a couple times a week.)

    Then the big stuff monthly/every couple weeks.

    You’ve got high standards. 

    I move laundry every few days–generally as long as it takes us to dirty a full load, I wash dishes/counters almost every day but some weeks it’s more like every other, I pick up the living room and dining room about 1-2x per week, I vacuum maybe once a month, I sweep about that often, and in the year i’ve lived in my house (save for cleaning a specific spill) I’ve only mopped the floor maybe 4 times? I just did our first real deep clean of the bathroom this past weekend, otherwise it’s been quick cleaning to put away the clutter and wipe down the sink/counter. 

    It’s not laziness, it’s just a lack of time.  I leave the house at 6am to get to work on time, I don’t get home until 7-7:30pm at night, then I have to cook dinner, put away the left overs, shower, and get ready for the next day– I can only spend so many minutes per day on housekeeping.

    I clean atleast every other day… Dishes daily if i i use the dish washer twice a week. Vacuum  once a week, landry once a week, shower/tub once a week, Toilets twice a week. Yard work every other week. I clean the oven, microwave and counters when I do the dishes. The kitchen and bathroom floors are once a week or every other week if I am being lazy. The refrigerator gets cleaned once every other week. Oh yeah and my Darling Husband dust weekly or every other week.

    Not as much as I would like.  I keep looking around saying to myself – “yeah, I should do something about that..” and then I continue to sit on here.

    ETA: It doesn’t help when I do clean and Fiance destroys the apartment within 5 seconds of walking through the door.  I kind of gave up after awhile.

    We clean daily.  What we clean daily is sort of a cycle.  Somedays it will be vaccuum, dust, laundry and others it will be clean bathroom, mop, and tidy bedrooms.  We do the dishes and clean the kitchen counters, microwave, stove, sweep and do the litter box every single day though.  I can not stand a dirty kitchen ever.

    I don’t have any kind of a set schedule.  I just clean when it starts looking / feeling like it needs it.

    Dust- once a week

    Dishes- once every couple of days (whenever it gets full!)

    Laundry- once to twice a week

    Sweep/mop- once to twice a week

    Pick up- daily/every two days. I usually try and clean before I leave so I come home to a clean house or right after I walk in the door while I still have energy 🙂

    We have a lab, so I’m always sweeping up dog hair… and MY hair too! .. other than that, I try to keep the dishes out of the sink as soon as they get rinsed they go right in Destination Wedding.  Laundry, one day a week, Dusting … one day…. and just keep up with clutter daily.

    I do most task daily but I am obsessive about cleanliness.

    I vaccum, Febreeze the furniture, bleach the counters and sinks, swiffer & mop floors, litter box duty, dust, and clean the toilet & shower everyday. Dishes are never left in the sink overnight and I bleach the counters again before I go to bed. 

    I only do laundry every Saturday because I have to pay $2.50 a load so I wait until I have a load or two.  

    But I do pick up after my Fiance and his friends almost immediately. If there’s any type of clutter like cans or clothes laying around it rattles my nerves and I have to pick it up right then. 

    But the good thing is people can walk into my clean apartment at anytime!
