My wife and I constantly tidy. We also do the needed odds and ends when needed, like dishes or laundry but about every couple of weeks we do a massive clean together. So I guess we're all over the map.
The minute I see a need to clean, it's done.
I hate a mess and just looking at one, makes me want to clean something.
If I'm unwell, then nothing will get me to clean.
I do bits and pieces all the time.
My house is cleaned in one go, once a week, by my cleaner. Tidying, on the other hand, happens all the time. I don't like mess but can tolerate a certain level of uncleanliness! The only time I might clean would be if something had been spilt or if the loo was looking grim. Pretty much everything else can wait, in my opinion!
Bits and pieces when I can, with a major clean on Saturdays when I have a couple of hours without the kids here so I can put things away without them following me around and taking things back out again or messing up one room while I tidy another. I forget who said it but I like the line: Trying to clean a house with children in it is like brushing your teeth while eating a chocolate bar.
