Cleaning Schedule

When I clean my house, I usually wait until after dinner when my kids are in bed and my hubby is at work. That way all of it gets done at once. But, today I cleaned every room (except my bedroom because hubby is asleep) before I laid my girls down for their nap. I'm kind of regretting it though. I know I'll have to clean again after dinner. At least it won't be as much though. Just picking up toys and cleaning dishes.

When do you normally clean your house? Do you clean every room thoroughly (floors, tables, counters, toilet, tub, etc.) every day, or do you just do a spot check (make sure everything is picked up, just wipe stuff down, etc.) most days?

    Most days I try to keep the mess under control throughout the day - spot cleaning spills etc and picking up stuff as I am able. After the kids go to bed I do a full sweep, but I don't really do any deep cleaning. The deep cleaning happens on my husbands days off so I have someone to wrangle the kids while I get it done :)

      I've tried doing this, but I'll get distracted by putting something away that belongs in another room and end up cleaning that room too lol.
      I usually just spot clean during the day and actual cleaning at night when the girls are in bed. I'll deep clean once a month where I scrub everything, including ceilings, fans, walls, doors, the toilet, tub, sinks, everything.
      Sometimes, when they're in the mood, my kids will help me wipe tables and counters.

      I know what you mean. I'm a stay-at-home mom with two little ones. But, for some reason, I can never keep the house spotless. My hubby thinks I just sit on my butt all day because of it lol. But, in all reality I'm playing with my girls and teaching them new things. There's no time to keep the house spotless when you're letting little ones play with play-doh and creating a sock puppet theater :)
