*FREE* Printable Cleaning & Meal Calendars

A mamma's got to be organized so there's more time for fun stuff, like sewing. Here's a Cleaning Calendar and Meal Calendar I created to organize my day to day. I like the 4 week rotating cleaning schedule instead of just 1 week because there are some things you just don't need to do every week. I also looked at actual calendars with dates, but I figured that's a lot of hassle to create new ones each month.












The downloads:

My family's calendar for your viewing pleasure.


A blank calendar for customization. 8.5x11in.

To display your calendar here are a few ideas...
1st option is what I use, on the fridge in magnet sleeves. I can easily update or change the calendar and also use a dry erase marker to cross off chores.
2nd great option would be to laminate them. I've got that laminator and I love it.
3rd option is to put the calendar in a picture frame and use dry erase marker on the glass.
4th the old school way, print a new one every 4 weeks and cross out chores with a pen. What fun is that?

Now I'm all organized. Don't ask me if I'm actually following through and crossing off chores. The fun is making the calendar. ;) Enjoy!

  1. THANK-YOU! I have been searching for something like this for a couple years already (honest)! I have tried different ways and haven't found anything that works for my family... I think this will work along with the other plans I have! I love the retro look as well! :) And, as an extra bonus (for me), you have taken the required time to build my own out of the equation so, like you mentioned, I can do other tasks like schoolwork (not such fun, but still needs to be done). :)

Staying Sharp: 5 Ways to Sharpen Your Sewing Tools

1. I'm willing to bet most of you have this first item and don't even know its true potential! Did you know ever notice that silly little strawberry hanging off your tomato pin cushion ? It isn't there just for looks (LOL), Mr. Strawberry is filled with something called "emery sand". I'm sure you have a few emery boards around the house or at the bottom of your purse to file your fingernails. Emery is also used to sharpen pins and needles and keep them free of burrs that will snag your fabric. 2. I'm going to be honest, my tomato pin cushion is hidden in the back of a drawer. Call me judgmental, but tomatoes are for my sandwich, not my sewing room. With a quick search of Pinterest  you can find some amazingly cute ideas for diy pin cushions. Check out my  pin cushion Pinterest board  for a start. Most cushions call for Fiber Fill , which is great, but for a sharper solution...fill your custom cushions with emery to sharpen your pins and nee
