No. Well, I do usually at least start laundry on Saturdays. Everything else pretty much waits until I can't stand it anymore. And DH keeps up with the general picking up, emptying trash cans, and dishes on a daily basis.

No, just as-needed. I've made schedules for chores before and we never follow them, so I stopped trying.

Not really. Laundry is usually done on the same days--Thurs for ours; Fri for towels/sheets; Sat for Dylan's. And I run the dish washer last thing at night. I tend to vacuum and sweep the kitchen floor Thurs-Sat and dh does the bathrooms on either Sat or Sun. But if we have plans for that day, then things either get shifted to another day or waits for next week.

Yes, but most of it's flexable.....


Laundry is everyday, at least one load gets put in the washer every morning.

No, it's mostly just "do it when it looks like it needs to be done." When there are dishes on the counter, someone puts them in the dishwasher. When there's a full load of dirty laundry in the hamper, someone throws it in the washer. Today I'm being lazy instead of folding clothes. Maybe I should get to it... lol.

Kinda sorta. Generally, I follow the FlyLady schedule, but it's gone down to a very loose interpretation of that since about May, first while I was prepping the sewing room for new floors and since then with prepping the living room and dining room for new floors.

Now I'm just doing some bare minimum maintenance on the critical areas (kitchen and bathrooms) and the usual vacuuming schedule is driven more by what area I've cleared recently than by my usual weekly schedule. The dishwasher still gets run every other day, the kitchen floor and front hallway are swept daily, but only mopped twice a week right now. The sewing room gets swept weekly.

The bathrooms get swept and mopped weekly. My bathroom toilet gets a daily swish with cleaner; the main bath gets that twice weekly. I've been swiping down the respective bathroom sink on the same schedule and I use a shower spray after any shower, so I don't have to scrub either one on a regular basis right now--usually I would do that monthly when the specific bathroom is on the FlyLady schedule.

My bedroom gets vacuumed twice a week. The spare room hasn't been vacuumed since May because I've been using it as the storage space while tthe other areas are cleared out and the floor's basically not even accessible (in any meaningful way) right now. The living room and dining room are being vacuumed piece meal as I clear out more stuff, I vacuum where it was, but haven't really done either room entirely.

The laundry is on the same schedule as before--Monday morning. And dusting is following the vacuuming schedule. My bedroom gets done twice a week, the sewing room once a week, the spare room isn't getting done at all right now and the living/dining rooms are being done as each space is cleared and furniture emptied or moved.
