The Wannabe Housekeeper Schedule

So…how many of you made your bed, emptied the dishwasher and put a load of laundry in before work this morning?

Me neither.

Thankfully that’s because my dishwasher didn’t need to be emptied and my laundry is DONE since I got super inspired and did it all yesterday. But I know by tomorrow morning I’ll need to get back at it.

Oh and I did make my bed. It was one of the only ways to convince myself not to crawl back into it once I put my running clothes on.

I made a prettier (and pin-able!) schedule to keep track of what day I’m on and what I’m supposed to be doing.


Tonight I’m supposed to be mopping floors. Which should be interesting since that is usually my husband’s chore. (I’ve tried to mop before and he considers my efforts lack luster.) I’m trying to decide if taking that chore back is a good decision for the long-term…

What is your least favorite chore? Mine is definitely washing the dishes, followed closely by mopping…although taking out the trash might supersede both of those.

  1. I sometimes make my bed before work. Does that count? 😉 In all seriousness, I give you major props for making a schedule and being determined.

    My least favorite chore is cleaning the bathroom. Yuck!

    taking out the trash is hateful! 🙂

  3. dusting, i hate dusting. It such a time consuming chore yet it’s barely noticeable when it’s done

  4. I’ve only made my bed once in the last year probably. The day I got a new bed ha. I thought tonight that I would seriously pay someone 20 dollars to do all of my dishes right now.

    I always make my bed – I think it feels warmer when I get in at night then since it was wrapped up all day 🙂

    I hate dusting and folding/putting away laundry. I always had to dust when I was little because my mom didn’t like doing it so I will pass on the tradition as soon as my son is old enough 🙂

    I hate hate HATE folding Laundry. I feel like it takes so long and it’s so boring and it’s just my least favorite thing to do.

    I love your schedule you’ve created. I’m thinking I need to do something like that for our house. What chore do I hate the most? Emptying the dishwasher. It just sucks! Water collects in the cups and everything & you still have to dry the dishes with a towel. I just hate it. Lol.
