How much time do you spend cleaning your house every day?

At least an hour a day.

I don't know exactly how much time it takes.

Certain things like making beds, washing dishes, and putting clothes away are my daily cleaning chores. Other things (dusting, changing sheets, sweeping, mopping, bathrooms, etc etc.) are on as-needed basis.

I'm not sure. If you include dishes and laundry it would be hours and hours but I guess that isn't really house cleaning. I have a cleaning schedule that I follow for the most part but of course there are always extra things that come up. Basically, I don't know but it seems like a lot

Mine varies a LOT from day to day. But probably only an hour yesterday.

okay, I'll be the "bad" mom... lately I've spent as close to zero time as possible on housework. Most of the daily chores are divided up among the children, and I'm just letting everything else slide for now. I know it's wrong, but I'm just too tired to care about things that aren't absolutely necessary.

I haven't felt well in a long time so I have let A LOT slack. I am trying to do more (in and out of the house) now that AJ is home from school for the summer. But I try at least an hour. Sometimes more if I am feeling well enough. I have a lot of organizing to do and painting the kids rooms on top of the everyday daily stuff. I am also trying to start a new cleaning schedule to try to keep up with other stuff better!

PM to see if I am available to make a siggy - decisions will be made on a case by case basis.

We have a regular cleaning schedule that includes 6 people in the house. We each have a few different chores each day - so we each spend about 20-30 minutes cleaning house every day. I'm not counting regular things like laundry and dishes, or barn chores. Our cleaning schedule is heavier on Monday and Tuesday, until Friday the only thing we do is clean bedrooms and vacuum upstairs. Saturdays are for Dad's chores (he divvies 'em out.) and Sunday we rest.
