Household chores

How do you keep up with your household chores and maintain a balance between things you have to do, and things you want to do. And your kids, if you have any? Do you have a chore chart? Do you have any recommendations for a chore chart even if you don't currently use one? I need some help! The house is a mess :)


  1. I keep MEANING to do one, unfortunately I feel like I need to have my house at a baseline of clean to start one, and I can't seem to do it. :(

  2. I feel that way too. I feel like, I need to spend one solid weekend just cleaning the shit out of the entire house and then I can start from there.

  3. This is always a work in progress in our house - we SO need a chore chart - especially now that our house is back on the market and we need to keep it clean all the time. Right now, Matt and I have specific chores that we do - I typically clean the bathrooms and do the laundry, he typically will do the vaccuming, we alternate cleaning the kitchen - whoever isn't giving Cam a bath/putting him to bed will be cleaning up the kitchen from dinner - but sometimes if we are lazy/tired it will wait until the next morning :-)

    The person I got the household binder idea from has a section in her binder for chores, you can see it in this post:

    Also - try browsing around there might be some ideas on there.

    I'd love to see what you come up with!

  4. Oooh, thanks for these tips! I'll keep you posted!
