Feel-good cleaning schedule

After I had my second child and things got busier, I noticed that the house was less than spotless even though I felt I was doing plenty of housework.  I realised I was just doing the 'easy' tasks or spending most of that time tidying toys.  So I needed a way to record when was the last time I did the main chores.  Not a plan, more of a pat on the back for winning at chores on top of the rest of life. Bullet journals are ideal for this but a pen and paper or Excel sheet will do.
