Homemaking Binder Series: Detailed Cleaning Checklists for Bedrooms, Bathrooms & Home Office

Homemaking Binder Series:Detailed Cleaning Checklists for: Bedrooms, Bathrooms & Home Office. @mferrell

We are continuing on in the series of making up a simple Homemaking Binder for the care of our homes. This is the third post in the series and you can find the first post here and the second here.  Here is a link to the whole series so you can easily keep checking back for new posts (or you can subscribe to the blog on the sidebar and snatch a free eBook as a great benefit and never miss a post!)

In today’s post, I’m covering Zone 3 and it includes Half Bath, Kids Bedrooms, Guest Bedroom, Kids Bathroom, and the Home Office.

This list seems long but the rooms covered are some in my home that doesn’t get too messy or are taken care of by other family members. Our office and guest room are quick to clean and my children take care of their own rooms and bathroom. This is a great list to go through with your kids to teach them to clean on their own.  The checklist concept makes it easy for them to follow. (See Teaching Our Daughters to Clean a Home)

You can find a PDF printable of this list in The Ultimate Homemaking Binder.
