Chore Calendar





This is my chore calendar for those of you that wondered what I was talking about (click on it to make it bigger).  I like it because it keeps me from feeling like I have to do everything at once.  If the bathrooms need to be cleaned, but I'm too overwhelmed to do it along with everything else, I can just say to myself, "I don't have to do it today.  I can wait until Wednesday when I have it on my schedule." :-)  There are just a few things that I do every day (like the kitchen and family room where we spend the most of our time), but even then, I've noticed that if I keep up on them every day, the messes get smaller and smaller.  Much more manageable.

I love this! I am going to copy it and make my own changes when I get into my own house (praying that it comes sooner than later!) Thanks for the great idea!

What a great idea. I'm going to make one myself Thanks for Sharing. I feel the same way sometimes. I just don't want to do it that day. This is a great thing to have. I'm all about list and things. Yes I wish that our kids lived closer to. when you posted about him liking footballs I thought they would have so much fun together too.

Saturday looks almost wide-open, so if you feel like hopping over to NY for a bit I can help you fill it up... my apartment needs some deep cleaning.
