I don't know about you but I am terrible at housework!! I am always behind. I have tried a million different schedules to keep on top of it, including cleaning a room a day, and just cleaning whatever I see first. Needless to say nothing has worked. I always have a million projects that I want to get done but I feel guilty working on them if my house is dirty.
Here is how I wrote my schedule up. For now I wrote it on a white board so I can change days around and find out what works for me. I also added a spot at the bottom of the board for 'ideas' and 'projects'. That way I can keep track of everything.
I really like this schedule. I have had to modify a few things, for example Tuesdays are super busy for me, it is hard to get laundry done on that day. It is easy to just switch days.
There are also some great ideas for how to get your kids involved. One of the ideas to get small children involved, is to play games with them. Let them pretend they have a farm. They can feed 'hay' (paper) to the horse (trashcan) or cans to the billy goat.
If you would like a list of what chores are on which day I compiled a list for you here. Also Heather has a free printable that you can use to set up your chore chart.
Do you have an approach to housework that helps you have some 'me' time? I would love to hear about it!
