A Printable Chore Charts – Cut Your Chore Time in Half
Creating printable chore charts for your home is simple and can be our number one secret weapon to getting the chores done quicker and easier.
The truth is, the hardest part is the first week of getting into the habit of using it.
But if you can get yourself into the habit, it is well worth it.
Actually it’s beyond well worth it, it’s invaluable and is the key to keeping a peaceful and pleasant home with little fuss or muss.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR CHORE CHARTS FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
First you need to figure out how you want to set it up.
- How many individual sections or boxes will you need?
- How many main category chores do you have?
After you figure that out, you just need to go into your word processor of choice and create a table that contains the amount of boxes that you want to use.
You can type in the tasks that you would like to be contained in these boxes or you can leave it blank and write them in yourself with pen, pencil or marker.
You can create headings for them or leave them blank to keep it simple.
The main thing is that you have enough room to list all of the categories or chores that you want to do on a regular basis but that it isn’t too complicated or it will be hard to use.
You want to keep it fast and simple.
The easier the better.
After you print it, put it inside a sheet protector so that you can keep the sheet nice and usable longer, and so that you can use a dry erase marker to check your tasks off as you go.
If you are making a chart that contains items that would be nice to have a record of, don’t bother with the sheet protector, just put the sheet into a binder and print a new one each time you need it, putting the old one behind the new one in your binder.
Creating printable chore charts (one or as many as you need) is one of those things that we may never get around to but can really be a key tool to help us to get our housework and chores done much faster.
MAKE IT EASY
If you don’t think you’ll ever get around to it, or if you’re not sure exactly the best way to set it up, you can get a blank printable chore chart as well as the one that I use every day.
I call it my BOOST Housework Circuit because from almost the first day I used it, I felt that my whole house was getting a daily boost.
I sometimes look at my copy that sits on my dishwasher and wonder that it can be so important to the maintenance and well being of our home.
It looks like just an innocent piece of paper.
