Last summer we moved from a smallish 1,500 sq ft house to a 3,000 sq ft house. On one hand its harder to keep it clean because there is so much floor space but on the other hand its easier to keep it clean because its not as cluttered and everything has its place.
So how big is your house and do you find it easy or hard to keep it clean? Do you have a cleaning schedule?
1300 sq feet. Its a good size for our family and easy to keep clean. I wish the bedrooms were bigger but it was built in 1923 so this is pretty standard ...as well as for most houses in the area.

We went from 1300 sqft to 2700 sqft last year. I agree 100% with what you've said. Everything has a place now. But we didnt increase our amount of stuff. And we won't. Especially while the kids are little. I do a lot of little stuff to make sure I can always clean within an hour or two. This means minimal stuff, and stuff that requires little to no maintenance.
The upper two floors of my home are 5500 sq. ft. The finished basement is about another 2000 sq. ft. My husband and I live here with 3 small dogs. The kids are grown so there are rooms I don't use at all. Plus, we could use a different bathroom each day of the week. lol
I have a maid. It takes 6 hours just to vacuum the whole house.
mine is 2700 square feet and it is so hard to keep clean!! I went from a single wide trailer to THAT!!! It's not as cluttered but I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle with keeping it clean.. it doesnt help I have two sons and a husband... they leave stuff where it falls... UGH!!! I work full time and ohman its hard!!! No cleaning schedule. if you set one up can you share it with me????
