Scooby Snack~Tip of the Day! January 28, 2010

This kind of goes along with yesterday’s tip of the day…

YOU DON’T HAVE TO CLEAN ALONE! Make a cleaning list for a once a week big clean for your house, or for whenever your house needs it! I print it off, put it on the counter, and we go to town! It’s fun to go back to the chart to see what’s been checked off. “Many hands make light work..” I made mine with pictures because I started it before my youngest was reading. There is a line next to the chore for them to sign off. This enable me to see who did what. We get my whole house done in about 45 minutes! If you have little ones, of course, modify your chart with chores they can do.

Click on the link below for the sample chart.


Let me know what you think! If you have questions, or would like suggestions, leave a comment!

Have a great tip or idea you want to share?

    How can I copy and paste the cleaning list into my computer to print it. As a grandmother who loves to keep her Grands….sometimes we need to clean up at my house too!

      Just click on the link to the list, in the upper left corner there is a “save” icon next to the printer icon. Click it and save to whichever file you want it on your computer. It will save as a pdf file. Did this help?

  3. […] to realize how gross it is to find bunched up, dirty socks in the hamper, or letting them see that cleaning up their room and throwing clean clothes in the hamper only makes for MORE LAUNDRY! […]
