Monthly To-Do and Cleaning List {Free Printable}



Now that I’m home full time I’ve been using my Home Management folder a lot more regularly.

I’ve got sections for to-do lists, shopping and meal plans, the baby, entertaining, important information and folders to hold all the odds and ends we might need day-to-day.
Up until now I’ve been using some free online printables designed by others but as I’m slowly figuring out what works best for me I’ve decided to start making some of my own. 


Designing and printing a fancy pants to-do list might seem a bit excessive when a written list on a scrap of paper would do just fine but there is method in my madness…

See, in an attempt to keep my sanity by adding more structure to my days I wanted to create a weekly cleaning list so I could have some set daily chores but not have to spend too much time thinking about it. I considered printing a master list with daily, weekly and monthly chores which could be added to my to-do list as needed but then I thought it’d be a lot quicker in the long run to design a monthly to-do list with the chores already added on. 


Each page covers a week and there are five different pages which can be printed out for each month. Each day has set chores but there are also weekly and monthly chores spread out across the list - that way I can easily remember to do the more random jobs like cleaning skirting boards and hoovering the mattress {because I have time for that with a new baby, right?!} Week five doesn’t have any extra chores so it can just be used during the months that have five weeks.

It saves so much time because I can see at a glance what I need to aim to do each day without having to sit down and work it out; it gives me more time to actually do the jobs!

I’m sure everyone has their own systems but I thought I’d make the lists available in case anyone would find them helpful for their own home management binder. Just follow the links and enjoy…




Happy Organising!

  2. Hi Rachel, I really like the layout of your weekly to-do list. Any chance you have an editable version of it so I can put in my own to-dos for each day? My email is lisamilton4@gmail.com. Thanks!!

  5. Hi Rachel. I Love your blog and have started taking tips from it already. Me and my partner already shopped at Abel & Cole and think it is great (although a tad more expensive than what we're used to but worth it).

    I also love the countryside and try to get out to it as much as possible. I don't think Cardiff is a huge sprawling smelly city (it is in fact compared to other cities in the UK pretty compact and fairly clean). There are good and bad areas in any city and I agree that Cardiff has it's fair share of bad areas but there are also some nice spots in Cardiff, you just have to look for them.
