This week's challenge is to create a daily and weekly routine for yourself. Pull from all the brainstorming you've been doing. Make sure you assign a time of the day (does not have to be an actual o'clock time) for your bare minimum. Include other goals from your lists, as well, even if you know you may not always get to them. Your routine is not a list of "must do's", but a guideline of how a typical day should go. If you have chore aged children, schedule in when you will focus on their chores.
Here is my rendition of a routine chart. If you prefer a different format, you can also use:
Crystal's customizable PDF or her customizable Daily Docket
Organizedhome.com's Daily Checklist and Weekly Checklist
or create your own in Word or Excel.
For this week, just focus on trying to get something on paper. Next week, we'll start implementing the routines and see how they work. They can always be changed if things aren"t quite working as smoothly as should be.
As always, I'd love to hear how it's going. Anyone come up with any great ideas on kids' chores?
