Keeping your home in good shape is not a simple job. There are probably a ton of tasks that you are thinking of right now that you wish you could get taken care of, but there just isn’t enough time in the day.

Well, if that is the case for you, you might want to consider creating a maintenance schedule.

If you want help in planning for your maintenance, you can find many examples online, but the main idea is to take all the different maintenance items that you need to care for as a homeowner and then divvying up them throughout the year. If something needs to be done once a year, you would only need it on one date, and if it should be done quarterly, you spread it out on 4 occasions. The idea is to make sure that you never get overwhelmed with too much to do, since that will be discouraging and exhausting, and making it less likely that anything gets done.

You should make sure that you spread everything out evenly, and if necessary and possible, splitting large tasks up over several days will make them more agreeable.

You will be amazed at how little time you actually need to spend to keep your maintenance schedule going, and your home will be in much better shape for it.
