A Chore Chart Like You've Never Seen Before

***This post may contain affiliate links. See my "Disclaimer" link for additional details.***

Today's flashback considers a system that I used, discarded for technology, and think I might return to doing in my planner instead.

The truth is that a check mark on-line is just not the same as checking something off in my planner.

planner, household, you tube, chores, chore chart

I used to handle household chores in my planner, but I moved to an app. Big mistake! I rarely glance at the app.

Instead, I'm going to revert to my old way of tracking household chores. Read about the plan to tackle household chores here.

TIP: This chart also works for getting fit (with goal items such as workout, stay under calorie count, eat 3 veggies, check weight) or any other routine set of activities.

Order some graph paper or print some out and join me with your own Household Chores tracking chart.

I do this with my reoccurring tasks and just about any other kind of task! Honestly, this sort of tracking system has almost replaced by monthly pages. Maybe it's because I'm a student and I find myself in a rhythm that repeats from week to week. Apps never have helped me with these reoccurring tasks. My phone and tablet already distract me enough as it is!

I just created a color coded cleaning schedule giving a different color to each assigned day. Problem with that is I got overly ambitious yesterday and began cleaning things assigned to another day, but had no way of tracking that those items were done so I dont clean them again on the assigned say. I think a checklist is more the way to go rather than locking in certain cleaning on certain days. With the checklist, I can do what I have time for that day and check it off on that date so u can visually see when it was done last.

Ooh! I have graph paper in my stash! Finally, an excuse to use it! lol

Seriously, though, I also have that master cleaning checklist I mentioned on my own blog awhile back. It came as a full-size page, but I shrank it down to fit my planner. I can still use it as a reference, but for checking off the actual tasks, I like your idea much better! :)

Popping over from Small Victories Sunday Link-up & so pleased I found you - I Have started to look for a way to incorporate regular tasks into my bullet journal - I think you have inspired me to create a little printable that can be stuck in each week (I quickly loose patience if I have to rule something, other than my page up every week)
Once it is done, I will make sure to share it so others can benefit from it too! Thankyou

Since I follow Flylady's cleaning schedule and get each day's plan and tasks the night before, I just put that day's cleaning to-do on my daily planner page. It's just 1 or 2 items.

The general weekly cleaning, which takes me about 75 minutes if I've kept up with the daily tasks, is on a list on my phone for quick reference. :-)

You totally need to go with the system that works best for you with chores. For me I've tried both paper and online planners but in the end simply assigning a task to a day so I would just know what I'm supposed to do that day has worked out the best for me. There is definitely something more visceral about crossing off a task on paper though!

I am the same way with technology. My lists on paper are so much more likely to get done. Thanks for linking up to the Country Fair Blog Party this month. I do hope you will join us again on the first.
