  1. WOW, Thank you so much for creating such a great job description list! I can’t wait to use it for my girls. It is so pretty and I know now they won’t mind having these lists to go by as a checklist. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this with us as well as everything else on your site. I really like the daily planners too. All of your time and effort you have spent on this is GREATLY APPRECIATED!

  2. You are very welcome Laura! So glad you found some useful tools here. I created these checklists mostly for myself, so my kids can use these and they don’t have to keep asking me if they are done yet!

    Hi there. I bought this last year and am so glad I did. I got my two boys their own cleaning buckets with supplies and had them cleaning bathrooms and their rooms. I have a time chart on the refrigerator so there was no question as to what would fill the day (including fun activities such as play dates and day trips). I only wish I had utilized the meal planning to make my life easier. It definitely takes discipline to follow through with everything but it is worth it!! I highly recommend this!

  4. Thanks Christina! I LOVE the idea of getting the kids their own cleaning buckets!!!
