My least favorite chore + cleaning schedule

As a stay-at-home mom I do a lot. 
The truth though? I feel like what I do most is cleaning.
Am I the only mom who feels this way?
I know I could spend my whole day and evening cleaning because I've done it often. 
My least favorite thing though? The never ending laundry!

I know I'm not the only mom who hates laundry. 
I've seen many complaints and rants on twitter and instagram about it. 
I've been one of those mom's dreading it. 
I wish we could just have new clothes every single day! 
I wish they'd wash, dry, and put themselves away!
Especially the last one.... not sure why that's the hardest part? 
Maybe because it's the most work. 

Laundry has gotten better since deciding I needed a cleaning schedule. 
I'd been coming across many on pinterest, but figured they just wouldn't work for me. 
I thought I'd never stay on track and would eventually give up! However, I was wrong! 
A cleaning schedule is the best thing I've done for myself as a SAHM and wife!

Its nothing fancy or pretty like the printouts I've come across. Its simple. Its to the point. 
There are certain things I do every single day and then I focus on one big thing a day. 
I'm not perfect. I do get off track. 
Some days I have to spend a good chunk of time cleaning just to get things back in order. 
However, a majority of my week isn't spent cleaning the house every single minute! 
I love that! 

I wouldn't say I have a favorite chore...
because picking up after everyone (myself included), is not my favorite! 
But I do love having a clean home!
I believe whole heartedly that it makes everyone less stressed and more happy! 

What's your favorite and least favorite chore? 

I'm linking up with a fresh start on a budget for the September blog challenge


  1. I need to do this, too...even if I have to drag myself kicking and screaming! Ha ha!

  2. Laundry is probably my favorite chore. There is something about the smell of fresh clean laundry. But yes, I do tend to do a lot so it can be very cumbersome!
    Doing the floors is the worst for me. I'll clean the whole house top to bottom and refuse to do the floors. Ugh!

  3. Laundry!!!! Is literally never ending, Im a stay at home mama as well and just came across your blog and I love that I can completely relate-the endless picking up after every single person is so tiring some days! But all in all, dishes are my least fav!
