Sanity Saving Chore Chart

So ever since we started planning for the wedding, the house has sort of gotten away from me. To get myself back on track, I have been following the advice of Heather from Home-Ec 101 and trying to keep up with housework in about 15 to 20 minutes worth of cleaning every day.

So far, this has been going swimmingly and my house is in much better shape. Also my stress levels are way down because I don't dread coming home to daunting piles of laundry and disgusting bathrooms — which is amazing.

Here is Heather's chore chart PDF, and below is my revised version. Click to make it bigger so you can actually read it...

I tried to allocate one large chore and one small chore per day like Heather does in her version. I don't know if it will stay exactly like this, or if I'll need to modify, but so far so good. And, if I keep this up, the housework that has to be done on the weekends is minimal, leaving me time for bigger projects or to relax. All in all, a pretty great system.


  1. I'm glad you are having success with it and I like that you tailored it to fit your needs and schedule. :-)

  2. Ah, the joy of lists... I use to do a similar thing - I have lists for household chores, errands, doctor appointments, etc. I'd be a mess without it!
