Live Acts of Pinterest: Cleaning Calendar

When I write about something I've tried on Pinterest, it's usually a new recipe.  What can I say, I love to eat.  Out of all of my boards, 'Food' has the most pins.  But!  I'm going to shake things up this time around and share something from my 'Bright Ideas' board.

I don't really love to clean, but I don't like messiness either.  Mess = stress.  Stress over mess = Anna freaking out and running around trying to CLEAN ALL THE THINGS.  I'd thought about trying to implement some sort of system so that dirt wouldn't build up and get out of control, but hadn't found anything that really worked for me.  Then, Pinterest happened, and a ton of great ideas fell right into my lap! 

 (taken from this blog post.  I can't seem to find an author to credit?)

This is the chart I chose to try. It's really worked wonders.  I have a couple of things I do every day, along with a special chore of the day.  Am I perfect?  No.  Has this little chart helped me freak out less about messes?  Totally.  As I've mentioned before, we are moving in a couple of months, and I think using this system will help reduce the amount of cleaning we'll have to do when we leave our current apartment.  Do you have a cleaning system that you like to use?
