Tackling House Projects

It's no secret that the list of house projects is NEVER ending. Not only do we have constant dishes and laundry to keep up on, we also have to periodically do things like, organizing drawers and closets, getting rid of old stuff, cleaning out the car and so on. I've made this printable list for you all to use. It's a list of typical house projects. Print it off then add anything else you need in order to personalize it to fit YOU.  Then laminate so you can check off items on your list and use over and over again.
The key is to not give yourself TOO much to do on any given day, that's why my goal is to pick only ONE of these projects and work on them over the course of the week. Give yourself an allotted amount of time each day, even if it's only 15 min. Set aside that time to tackle those chores one project at a time.

Great idea! I try and do too many things, then get overwhelmed, quit all of them, and never get to check things off. :) So I stopped doing projects altogether, but that's not working out either.

Oh, I get so overwhelmed by it all. Thinking that b/c I can't do it all, I shouldn't bother with any of it. *blushes*

That reminds me...I have a backyard to clean up.

This is a great idea..I'm always trying to do forty bazillion things and go from task to task--never getting the first one done!

Heather said...

That's a great approach to those things you always forget about! I think I might have to print this out:-)

mintifresh said...

These are awesome lists! Nicely done!

Daisygirl said...

I agree one thing at a time...but for me that is so hard I always begin a project before I have one done then I get whelmed! I love your lists!

Do you think moms have some kind of automatic ADD? We start a project with big ideas, plans and dreams of what it will be like in the end, then we get overwhelmed and never finish it. Better just to move on to another project! This is the endless cycle that seems to happen at our house.
This is a great idea.

Awesome list! I think you're right about setting realistic goals. I tend to try to do too many things and then feel badly that I didn't finish.
