Cleaning can feel overwhelming, but with the right system in place it doesn’t have to! My husband created this great free editable chore chart printable to help you create a household chore list cleaning schedule that works for the entire family.
Before the end of 2013, my husband was annoyed that our house wasn’t staying as clean, organized, and decluttered as we like. So, we decided to create a household chore list for ourselves. We kept it simple, easy to follow, and easy to check off. We laminated it with contact paper, and stuck it on our fridge so that we can easily check it off our chores during the day.
Each day our goal is to check off all of our daily chores. One of the daily chores is to do a weekly chore. And each Saturday there is a monthly chore. The Saturday chores do not need to be checked off in order, as long as each of them gets done at least once a month.
I think this system is very easy, forgiving, and adjustable, compared to other super long, super specific lists I have seen. The hard part is remembering to clear off the daily chore part each morning (and complete them all of course)! We generally take a break on Sundays from our daily chores.
While some of you may be aghast that we only wash our sheets, towels, and blankets once a month, or mop our floors once a week (we do generally vacuum more than once a week though – our dining room is carpeted so it’s a must) that’s honestly an improvement for us. Also, I realize that every home is not the same (maybe you don’t have stairs), so I have made this FREE printable editable by making the download a .docx file instead of a PDF, which means it is a free editable chore chart printable for your household chore list. You are welcome.
So you can download it (just click any of the links in this post or on the picture above), edit it to fit your family and home, print it off, laminate it, and get checking off those household chores! Or, you can use our household chore system as a template to create your own. Either way, I hope it helps you be more clean and organized!
