et me start by saying I do not love doing chores. I do not love cleaning. I do it because I have difficulty concentrating when the house is a mess or there are giant dust bunnies hopping around. Hence, I seem to always be cleaning and straightening up. Hubs always wants to help, but by the time he asks I have usually already remedied the mess. While reading Design Sponge’s post on a DIY grocery list, the light bulb came on. Instead of a grocery list, why don’t I make a chores list? That way Hubs and I know what needs to be done without having to ask.
I just made a simple list of all the regular chores that need to be done in a month. I added check boxes for each week in the month and, before you think I am neurotic, I don’t expect all of these chores to be done each week I just wanted to know when they were done so we don’t replicate efforts unnecessarily. I will put it on the fridge so hopefully we will actually keep up with it!
