I have a list that I made and hung on my fridge. Every day has a "big" task and a "little" task on it. Big tasks are things like cleaning the kitchen, cleaning the bathroom, laundry day, vacuuming, etc. (As in a full clean, not just a wipe down) Little tasks would be wiping mirrors, sweeping the balcony, folding laundry etc. (You can find suggestions if you Google "cleaning list" or something) Usually I do a big laundry overhaul on Wednesdays so Thursday's duty is to fold everything and give the laundry room a wipe down.
If I stick to it then it makes everything really short and simple because something is always being tidied. Even if you are lazy one day (or two) it generally doesn't make a huge difference and when I have company over I don't have to do a major clean to make my place presentable.
