Create a Weekly Chore List By Rooms
I found that assigning certain rooms for each day really helped me tackle everything in the house in a cycle.
For example, Mondays are for bathrooms and Wednesdays I do the living room. I do not work on any other space but the one on my list for that day, no matter what mess I might see.
Time with my family is much more important and having a breakdown like this really helped me drown out certain distractions that don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.
What does your cleaning schedule look like? What works best for you? I’d love to see in the comments the ways you have learned how to prevent household chore overwhelm in your daily life.
