Default Household Chores-How Often?

How often do you do various household chores? Do you have a set schedule, or do you just do them as needed?

We do dishes after they're used, pick up things as needed and we pay people to clean the house (floors, dust, bathrooms, etc) every other week.

We clean when things look dirty or we are having people over.

I need to clean on a more rigorous schedule...since it is just me living here currently, I basically clean when I can't take the clutter anymore.

Like today, for example. My dirty dishes are starting to stack up, the floor really needs to be vacuumed, the trash is full, and the bathroom sink is starting to look a little "meh". So I really need to take care of that, and probably will since today is my day off...but I've let it go on for awhile. LOL

As often as needed.

Minimum once per week we do a concentrated effort (usually Saturdays) where everything gets straightened/vacuumed/dusted/bathrooms cleaned. If I'm really ambitious, I'll bring up the shark steam mop and mop floors too, but that's more of every 3 weeks or so.

Daily we'll do dishes/straighten up.

What is this "Household Chore" thing of which you speak? Things get picked up when we either slip on them, or stub our toes. Is that considered cleaning, or just averting a potential HazMat situation?

Reality: Four adults, three large dogs, and a fish. We tidy/clean as we go along. Ok, *they* tidy and I clean, because I'm a little bit weird about the way things should be done.

Vacuum when the fur gets too deep... okay, maybe a little more often than that. Can't stand dirty dishes in the sink so that's after every meal, clean bathrooms every week, laundry gets done once or twice a week. Not much of a stickler when it comes to dusting but we've got some much stuff on horizontal surfaces - knickknacks, figurines, framed photos, books, candles, that it's a chore dusting/moving all that stuff to get to the table/shelf surface. My solution? A small magnet that says, 'You may write in the dust, just don't date it.'

Deep, frenzied cleaning if company is coming over, which luckily doesn't happen too often since we're further away than most family members, friends in the city, want to drive.

I *loathe* doing dishes. Like, hate hate hate. I don't have a dishwasher, so everything has to be done by hand...and because I hate it, I let them all pile up and then do them all in one fell swoop, which makes me hate it even more. I really need to start washing them as soon as I'm done using them...but washing dishes.

We vacuum every morning because of the German Shedders we have. lol We pick up toys every night and do dishes when they are used. We clean as we do things most of the time and for other stuff we do as needed. We do have assigned chores for each person though. For example who ever cooks doesn't have to clean the kitchen/dining room. Who ever didn't cook does that.

That's me and Sis (we share a house). I loathe cooking, so unless Sis wants frozen dinners or eating out of a can, she cooks and I clean up the dishes/kitchen afterward.
