Getting chores done is never fun, but in order to stay more organized in the chaos that is Casa de Higgins. Between a new baby, two dogs and a husband who works too much, my job as housewife is finally getting some much needed structure. Typically I would write my chores down on a piece of paper, lose that piece of paper give or take a half dozen times and maybe get quarter of my list done. With the help of a list that is divided by day, I am now able to keep the house organized and my sanity in check.
While I realize some of the items may seem basic and repetitive, I find that if I write them down and can physically cross them off, they will get done a lot more efficiently.
In the bottom bubble, DH has his chores. Laugh all you want, but putting clothing in the hamper just doesn’t get done as often as I would like. Maybe my chore chart will help him focus on keeping the bedroom floor a little more tidy and his size 13 shoes out of my tripping area.
The section for products we ran out of is already coming in handy as I spotted an empty bag of crackers that otherwise would have been forgotten about.
Want your own weekly chore chart? Well it’s not hard to make. I just made mine in Paint, yup that free program on your computer. I added some fun fonts from dafont.com and PRESTO, chore chart complete.
Put your chore chart in a frame and you are all set. I use a dry erase board marker to strikethrough each item as it gets done and at the end of the week wipe it clean and start fresh.
