15 Minute Cleanup Check Lists

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

Telling a child to clean a room is overwhelming. These check lists are broken down into easy doable one to three minute chores. Assign a child a room or a few steps.

Explain to your children if you complete the list every day each can be done in about 15 minutes!

Click on list to get 8.5 x11 sheet for printing. Laminate list and hang in appropriate room. Use dry erase markers to check off or assign chores. (If you don’t have a laminate consider getting one, we use ours all the time).

Here is a blank list to make your own

A 15 Minute Cleanup time is a great way to stay ahead of clutter.  To really keep a home clean you should add weekly to do lists too (clean out fridge, clean under beds, closets, etc).

    Thank you for yet another tip. I really appreciate your charts. Just today I had ONE of THOSE days! I spent all last week re- organizing the house just to find everything on the floor again today!!!!! 6 kids can really be like a tornado sometimes.

    I even sent the kids to bed with a reminder that they have 15 minutes to get things cleaned up tomorrow:) Perfect timing for these.

    Love your encouragement. Thank you.

    Blessings to You and Your Family!

    Just wanted to let everyone without a laminator know that you can buy clear contact paper to cover charts, books, etc. and it is very easy to use. You can find in the household section of stores with the drawer liners. Great Blog! Keep up the good work. God Bless!
