Life, in general, flows in cycles. With some thought, your household task schedules can fit into those daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual cycles.
Here are Blaelock’s tips for household task schedules:
- Daily: Regardless of who you are, and where you live, there are regular daily tasks like preparing food and cleaning up afterwards. Think about how you can use one block of time to prepare and clean up for more than one meal at a time.
- Weekly: Similarly, you probably have a weekly framework that includes things like rubbish collection, after school activities and date night. How do those commitments impact your schedule? Where do you need to move tasks around to make space for them?
- Monthly: Some activities, like Farmers Markets, take place on a monthly schedule (e.g., third Saturday). You can use these to work around “light” and “deeper” cleans, for example throwing out expired food and cleaning the fridge.
- Quarterly: Quarterly tasts will usually rotate around seasonal preparations such as wardrobe swaps, storm or bushfore perparations or airconditioning treatments. Or cleaning all the light switches and door handles.
- Annual: The annual calendar is most obvious in birthdays and religious observances, but you could also include appliance maintenance or replacement, carpet cleaning or blanket washing.
