Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Shared lists for getting housework done

Tuesday, June 15, 2010 by Emily Boyd

This handy tip from kerobb is a great way to use shared lists and keep on top of your chores. Thanks to this tip, I've shared lists with Bob to get him to help with the cleaning around here — he's surprisingly good at doing the dishes!

Bob's helpful around the house

My husband and I both work full-time and don't always share the same days off. I created a list for our weekly housework chores and shared it with him. This way when one of us completes a chore like cleaning the ensuite shower, it is off the list for the week and we don't repeat the same chore and always know what still needs to be done. I love the weeks when his two days off are before my two days off!
