We’ve been managing chores the same way for the last 15+ years! With only two kids at home now, we did have to rearrange a few things. But the basics haven’t changed. Every morning, chores have to be done before school. They are split up this way:
- Dishes & Garbage
- Counters & Sweep/Vacuum
- And Saturday an extra chore.
So, child one always knows she has dishes and garbage every other day (Monday, Wednesday and Friday).. then on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, she has Counters and sweep/vacuum. It’s opposite for child #2. Dishes and garbage on Tue, Thurs. Sat., and counters and sweep, Monday, Wed, Fri.
I love this method! Everything gets done before school and the house at least looks put together before everyone leaves for the day. I’ve been printing a paper chart to hang on the fridge for all the years my kids have been chore age. That was because I never found a chart that was just right for our system. That was until I found Modern Magnetix. This magnetic chore chart fits perfectly with our system.

- Make bed
