QOTD: Weekend

When do you do the bulk of your weekly cleaning? Not the usual dishes, etc, but the vacuuming, laundry, etc?

Fridays I do most of our laundry (I work from home Friday), and the cleaning spread between Sat. & Sun.

Early mornings before work I do most of my sweeping and laundry...while the house it quiet and the boys are sleeping. Wink Bathrooms, mopping, waxing, windows, etc are done on weekends...most of the time on Sundays.

all day every day, seriously. I can't keep on top of it at all. If I don't vacuum daily it is awful and for just 4 people we have a ton of laundry. It's crazy!

Whenever it's so dirty I can't stand it.... or guests are coming over. Gosh that sounds horrible... but it's true. I'm just too tired to do it other time.

I do odd jobs throughout the week. Saturday is usually my lazier day, but I still keep everything picked up. Sundays I usually clean the bathrooms.

That doesn't sound horrible. Thats me too!! And I only have ONE child! :rolleyes:

We do laundry on the weekends for sure, but that's the only "scheduled" chore around here.

Laundry is normally on Monday or Tuesday, although lately it has been whenever my machine is actually hooked up:) (we are remodeling the mudroom where the laundry is). Everything else is pretty much whenever I have a moment to do it. I'll clean the bathroom quick while the kids are playing, do dishes when they are in bed...whatever. I had a schedule but kinda got away from it. Should probably do that again;)
I don't do much on weekends. That is when we are either working on the house or just hanging out as a family. I normally have to clear a path on Monday though:D

I schedule this just as I do everything else. Right now I have a two story and I do cleaning on Tuesdays. I clean one level a week, dusting, vacumming, etc. I do laundry on Monday and Fridays. Well and every other Tuesday I do laundry when I change the bedsheets and clean the upper level. Smile I get really crabby if my Tuesday gets scheduled.

I do diapers every three days, so that's never the same day. I wash the kids clothes on Wednesdays (that's usually a good four loads right there), and the adult clothes on Thursday. I do towels about every 10 days or so, and try to time it so it's Mon/Tues so it doesn't interfere with the rest of the laundry. I mop the kitchen on Mondays. And I let my cleaning lady do everything else when she comes once a month.

DH does all the laundry, empties dishwasher and trash. In case you want to know he does towels and dryables on Wed. and work clothes on Thurs. Smile

We have hardwoods downstairs so I dust mop them a few times a week to pick up dog hair (takes 5 min. or run the Roomba). I wax them when they need them. Usually after a rain when the dogs come in with wet paws. I spot clean spills. Kitchen stays clean... can't stand it any other way. I wipe the counters and do dishes every night. Upstairs gets vacuumed whenever(never use it except scraproom). I usually try to clean the bathrooms on Thursday evening so I have the weekend free.

ummm this!

although recently we have been working hard on reorganizing our house and Im staying on top of the dishes more... but the laundry is a lOST cause i think
the last few weekends have been all housework and organizing..but this weekend i took off for the 12 hour crop!!!
so this week i will have to get busy in the evenign...

what I would like to do is do 20 min right when I get home and then 2-3 hours at some point on the weekend... some day....

I also pay a couple of the neighboring girls rotating for a couple hours a week.
I have to!

I do laundry all week long. Have to. I don't have many pants. As for vacuuming, not as often as I would like. Lol I try to clean all through the week and enjoy my weekend.
