  • Write your own family's chores on this household chores checklist. Set your checklist up once and then make copies for each month.

  • Think FAST! By color coding the chores checklist you can quickly see what tasks need to be done and when. For example, you can use one color for weekly chores and a different color for monthly or bi-monthly chores.

  • If you're trying to keep track of who does which chore, consider assigning a different color to each family member and coding the household chore checklist accordingly. Again, at-a-glance, evenyone will know what their jobs are. No more "what am I supposed to do again?".

  • Or, alternatively, place your printed copy of the checklist into a plastic sleeve. Use a dry erase marker to fill it in each month. If you organize your chores the same each month, then you won't even need to repeat this step.

  • Another idea is to use a monthly calendar for a visual household chores checklist. You can still use the numbered and lettered tasks as described in the printable household chores checklist.

Why a household chores checklist is such a great resource for an efficient home.

  • No one can function at their peak by working from memory. Think about the most efficient people you come across in your workplace. What tools do they depend upon to keep their days running smoothly?

  • The fact is, running your home is a lot like running a business. You need tools, resources, schedules, and budgets. Thankfully, many of these tools are free or low cost online and can provide you with value many, many times above their costs. Use them to your advantage!
  • Training your family to use a household chores checklist and other simple household tools means you are mothering effectively by teaching them how to run a household, develope self-discipline, and encourage teamwork. If they have difficulty understanding this concept, I recommend a family reading of the classic story "The Little Red Hen".
  • Keep in mind that a household chores checklist is not what will keep your home clean. If you can use some more thoughts on that subject, read my article, "How to Use Chore Charts Effectively" and make the most out of your efforts whether you're using this chores checklist or any other.
  • A smart thing to do is to compile creative ideas on how to organize your home. Then you can pick and choose solutions as various needs arise in your homelife. Here's the successful organizing resource I keep at my fingertips.
