Laundry, dishes, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming – sometimes it can seem like there are so many chores to do that you can’t possibly keep up with everything. Between friends, family, and hobbies, it can be difficult to find time to clean your apartment. And for some, the length of their cleaning to-do list alone is enough to turn them off from cleaning altogether. So, what’s the solution? Many people have found that creating a chore chart is a great way to stay organized and keep on top of their housework. And for those living with roommates, chore charts are a great way to make sure everyone knows which chores they are responsible for and to ensure that everyone receives an equal amount of work.
Whether you are making a chore chart for yourself, you and your roommates, or even your family, here are some tips to keep in mind:
- Be reasonable with your expectations for yourself and others.
- Get your apartment organized so that chores will be easier to complete. Ensure everything has its own home.
- Customize the chart to meet your needs. For example, if you notice that your bathroom sinks seem to get dirty quickly, you may want to put “clean the bathroom” on the chart a few times a week.
- Consider adding rewards for you and your roommates or family for when the chores are completed.
