Daily Chore Charts

Posted on June 23, 2014 at 4:05 PM

Ugh the dreaded household chores. Who likes them? Not me! I am the type of person that overwhelmed when there is too much to do.  Since becoming a stay at home mom, I have been trying and trying to figure out a good schedule for cleaning for me and my family, and yes the kids do their fair share of chores in my house.  Each of us have our daily list of chores which include cleaning bedrooms, making beds, brushing teeth, taking showers, feeding animals, taking vitamins ect.  Then we each have a lots of chores for each day of the week. For example on Mondays I do all the laundry, change all the hand towels in the house and sweep the floors. My son empty the trash, dust the piano, and help cook dinner. My daughters chores on Monday are clean the toilet, and wash the windows, mirrors and front of the washer and dryer. 

How we keep track of our chores is we have on our fridge our everyday chores, and then we also have our days of the week chores that we change out every day. It's nothing fancy, just computer paper with the day of the week on it and pictures of what chores they are doing that day.  By the end of the week everything has been done at least once and that means Saturday mornings aren't just chore day.  My kids know what they need to do every day and I don't have to tell them.  We just all know what needs to be done before we have any fun time or go anywhere. It works for us, maybe it would work for your family? Try it out and see. It has definitely changed our way of living :-)
