Motivated Mskis

In an attempt to keep things under control around the house, I got the list of chores from It's a great plan, where you essentially have a little checklist of daily chores and special chores for each day. If you do these things, the house will be all sparkly. The whole calendar year was $8, and from what many of my friends say, it is well worth the cost. Instead of walking around wringing your hands, you know what to do to get the house clean.

So. They give you a sample online, and here are the dailies from the online sample list:
  • Make beds
  • Feed pets
  • Load/run/empty dishwasher
  • Sweep kitchen & entryway
  • Clean kitchen sink
  • Clear/wipe kitchen counters
  • Plan/cook dinner
  • Wipe out bathroom sinks
  • Empty trash
  • Do laundry
  • Read to children
  • Exercise
  • Quiet time
  • Take vitamins/medication
  • Prepare tomorrow's clothing
So I explained the system to the girls, and told them that was we complete these things, we check them off on the list, which is on the wall in the kitchen.
Naomi: "I'll take quiet time."
Jessica: "I'll take vitamins."
