Tackle it Tuesday!



I tackled the business of getting a chart of household chores posted on the refrigerator. We have a home of five, sometimes six people, and I can not do it all and work full time, so I have assigned the kids relatively simple tasks for weekdays (unload the dishwasher, feed the dog, etc.) and some cleaning tasks for weekends (windex glass tables, upstairs bathroom, and so on), with a reminder that they can earn some extra $ for doing extra work (suggestions included), and another reminder that their first job is to be a good student, complete homework, and practice music. It's on my fridge and ready to go! Here's what it looks like:

  1. My kids are still young. They have to pick up their stuff, and take their plates/cups to the table, etc, but no cleaning chores as of yet.

  3. Way to go! I work full-time also, and do about 95% of the inside chores too. My 2 boys are young (7 & 3) but they do have chores to do each morning, like make their bed, get dressed, feed the cats, and the 7 yr old also scoops the litter box sometimes and emptys the small trashcans. When they are older I hope to do something like you've done here.

  7. What a great idea. My son has a few chores too, like cleaning the cats litter box. I need to post one of those big huge yellow sticky's for him to remember.
