I started out by listing things that are necessary to keep a house clean - wiping down counters, laundry, dishes, dusting, etc - then determined what needs to be done weekly vs daily, and finally played around with our schedule to make sure that we could fit it in (example: Mondays B has gymnastics, so between driving, class, and dinner, that doesn't leave a lot of time for a long, drawn out chore). Here's my final draft!
I feel as though dishes seem to pile up quicker than laundry does, but I put laundry on the bi-weekly list as a way to catch up. While hampers fill with dirty laundry daily, I will wash loads as needed. Tuesday is garbage pickup, so it will be collected Monday night. Saturday's Kitchen Appliances chore includes cleaning out the refrigerator and making sure leftovers from the week are taken care of and food is within the expiration date (also wipe down the shelves). This will help a lot when unloading the groceries!
This feels comfortable and I'm excited to test it out (starting tonight!) and see how it helps with managing the household!
What chore system do you have in place, for either yourself or your kids?
