Have you ever found yourself on your knees wiping off baseboards minutes before company was set to arrive?

I have been there. 

All your true friends would tell you they don’t care that your baseboards are dirty (and they probably don’t). Sometimes it’s just hard to relax and enjoy a visit when you see the chocolate milk splattered all over the wall. You thought for sure it had been cleaned up the night before. 

We understand.

It’s a lot to manage. Having a tool to help remember those tasks helps them get done the way you want them to, and in a timeframe you’re happy with.

At Just Homemaking we want to make your life easier. If you are like us, you like to free up brain space while getting your to-do list done at the same time. 

We can’t wait to share our customizable cleaning schedule for stay at home moms with you!

What is a SAHM Cleaning Schedule?

Let’s start at the beginning. What is a SAHM cleaning schedule?

A SAHM cleaning schedule is simply an organized plan to help you accomplish your household duties in an efficient and successful way.

Cleaning schedules include the tasks you need to accomplish and the timeframe that they will be done. 

Cleaning schedules for families also get specific as to who is going to do what tasks. For example, we keep the same child in charge of garbage the entire month. The same goes true for recycling tasks and filling up our Berkey. 

Now that we have seen how simple a SAHM cleaning schedule can be, let’s take a look at why it’s important.

Why a stay at home mom cleaning routine is important

Let’s face it, having a stay at home mom cleaning routine is helpful for a couple reasons.

1. You’ll avoid distractions.

So many things fight for our attention on a daily basis and being good stewards of our time will only help us to be more productive and successful.

2. You’ll save brain space.

How many times have you thought, “I meant to get that done this week” or “when was the last time we changed the furnace filter?”

As a homemaker, we are managing so many components of our life and the lives of others. It’s too hard to remember all the other details. A cleaning schedule will eliminate decision fatigue and forgetfulness!

3. You’ll experience reduced stress.

By using a SAHM cleaning schedule we make a plan to succeed, which provides a more relaxed feeling in our homes.

Chores won’t pile up and you’ll avoid feeling overwhelmed.

4. You’ll have more time for other things.

When you have a plan, you get to choose where your time is spent. You can intentionally include margin or carve out time for relationships, hobbies, self care, family activities, etc.

5. You’ll be able to delegate more easily.

When you know what needs to get done and when, you can more easily include your family in cleaning and maintaining your home.

6. You’ll feel better about having guests over.

Whether planned or unplanned, you’ll feel a lot better about opening your door and welcoming others into your home, because things will have been cleaned regularly.

Quick tidy-ups may still be in order, but your house won’t be dirty.

7. You become proactive.

Rather than just reacting to messes around the house, tasks that need to be done, and all around putting out little fires everywhere, you will be chucking away at these items on purpose.

8. You’ll intentionally create peace.

For yourself and your family members, the whole house functions better when things are taken care of intentionally and predictably.

9. You’ll be more flexible.

When you have a routine, you’ll be able to adjust and adapt when necessary.

Whether changes are necessary for a season or just a day, you’ll have a clear picture of what you need to get done and see where you can tweak things for better efficiency.

10. You’ll maintain your home in addition to cleaning it.

There’s a lot more to a home’s needs than just cleanliness. By using a routine, you’ll ensure that regular household maintenance is happening to help your home function efficiently.

Christian Homemaking Course

As homemakers ourselves, we sat down and took a close look at what we wished we had available to us when we were overwhelmed with our homemaking responsibilities.

We looked at cleaning routines, meal planning, and finances and created systems that would work.

Then, we examined our hearts towards the ministry of homemaking and aligned our desires with God’s instruction through scripture.

Finally, we took our years of homemaking experience and poured our hearts into packaging our knowledge into a complete, done-for-you course, called Renew Your Homemaking, that will transform the way you love your home, your people, and your role as a homemaker.

Our prayer is that this course will help you love your job as a homemaker and make it SO much easier on you!
