Am I the only one who hates cleaning?
No, good.

I absolutely hate it! I have to force myself to do it. But I do love having a nice clean and tidy home, just coming downstairs in the morning to find it all nice and tidy just puts me in a good mood.

Are you like me and sometimes leave the dinner dishes and say ‘oh, I’ll just do them in the morning’ only to find that when you do get up the following day and walk into your kitchen with dirty pots and pans everywhere the first thing you feel like doing is going back to bed

That’s when I came up with cleaning notes. So simple but genius! I have 6 sticky notes on my fridge with chores that need doing. Me and my husband simple pick one each to do and replace it with another chore. We choose one each everyday. Makes cleaning the house so much easier and fun because me and my husband are always rushing to the fridge to pick the most easier chore LOL.

And do you see them cute little peg magnets? I brought them a while ago from Samantha’s Etsy store. She makes some really cute things and she has quite a few gorgeous sewing patterns, go check her out at At home with Mrs H . We use these to write down little reminders or sometimes just ‘I love you’ notes

I use these as part of My Command Center

  1. Good idea! My mom used to leave us a list of chores each morning in the summer time. Whoever got up first could put their name by the easiet chore! So it was motivation to get up instead of sleeping late. I’m your newest follower! Catherine

  4. This is a great idea, Natasha! It is wonderful that you and your husband work so well together – each taking a note ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for sharing this post at the ALL MY BLOGGY FRIENDS party !

  5. Great idea! I want to try this out with my kids and see who does what first. I bet I will find them racing for the easy jobs rather than waiting till the last minute. I’m so frustrated trying to get them to help. I’m starting to feel like the maid and since I work full-time out of the house, I don’t have a lot of time to get the chores done. I hope this helps. Thanks for sharing.
