Monthly Household Chores Checklist


Every family needs to follow a pattern to stay organized, including what is for dinner, where each member of the family is going, and of course, keeping the house clean.

To best encourage a clean and healthy lifestyle, there are cleaning tasks that need to be completed daily, weekly, monthly, and periodically. We will share our house cleaning checklists for each of these categories over the coming weeks, beginning with the monthly tasks because we find them to be the most challenging.

Here is a list of everything we clean in each room and the entire house each month. We always evaluate and update our lists, so please comment if there are any others you would want to include.
