You can be a working mom, stay-at-home mom, working professional or bachelor and still stay on top of your chores — without a hassle.
One of the most efficient ways to break up the household chores is to have a daily chore schedule. If you are not afraid of monotony and would rather get a little bit done at a time — or if your work or school schedule only allows you to accomplish small amounts of housework at a time — this is a perfect option. A daily schedule can also work to schedule chores for older children and to help encourage younger children to help with the housework. It can help keep family members accountable, creates a steady routine and gets the house clean on a weekly basis.
Here's a perfect example of a daily schedule that gives you one day off as a reward for all your hard work.
Maybe a schedule or daily routine doesn't sound appealing or doesn't work for your situation. A weekend schedule might be a better fit and is often easier for working parents, people who travel for work or would rather enjoy a clean house — and for people who prefer more days off from cleaning house. There are many ways to arrange a weekly schedule, but it's usually best to take one to two days to really focus on your chores and spend a little more time in sections of the house, instead of separate rooms.
Designating specific chores to family members is a good way to take the pressure off of yourself, get children involved and keep your house clean. An easy way to delegate — and ensure everyone is happier with his or her chores instead of feeling forced — is to do a trial run.
