I have a confession to make. I hate cleaning. Like, loatheeeee it. I think there are people out there who love it but I am not one of those people. When March hit everyone was talking about spring cleaning and I was just shaking my head because NO! It’s not that time again, is it?
The truth is – I really really need to clean this house. From top to bottom. We had a TON of sickness this past winter and the thought of getting all those leftover germs out of this house is refreshing. It’s the actual, ya know, getting it done thing that makes me feel overwhelmed.
I knew if I was going to conquer our 2,500 square foot house I would need a good plan for each room! So I created a simple printable Chore Chart that could help me track what needs to be cleaned and when I’m done with it.
Now, here’s my other confession, which some people may think is kinda silly since I’m a mom in my thirties. But here it goes. I’m jealous that my sons have sticker charts.
Whenever they go above and beyond to help out we give them a sticker. When they fill it up they get to go pick out a toy. I mean, what about me?! Don’t I deserve some stars for my hard work too?! I think so!
You know what always helps me accomplish a task? Incentives. If I know there is something amazing waiting for me at the end of a chore – I will get ‘er done so I can enjoy my reward. I decided that each time I finish a room I am going to have a yummy snack!
And in this case, it just happens to be my favorite chocolate bar – SNICKERS® with a little bit of coffee. I don’t know about you but if a SNICKERS doesn’t make you want to finish scrubbing the sink then I don’t know what will! I can’t get my work done #WhenImHungry can you?
There are actually two pages to the printable chore chart. I wanted to list each area of our house that needed cleaned. I even put “outdoor” on there because our deck and flower beds need some serious work.
You can download a PDF of the Chore Chart and print it off so you can check off the stars and reward yourself for finishing tasks too. It feels so good to check those little stars off!
I shop for all my cleaning supplies at Dollar General since they have such great prices. And before I left I was able to pick up my SNICKERS® Almond bar right as I was checking out.
So what about you – do you use a chore chart? Do you give yourself a reward for accomplishing a big task?
