How to Divvy Up the Household Chores

 In Home Maintenance

Maintaining a household is easier said than done. One can often feel overwhelmed if they take on all of the house hold chores and clutter on their own. To help you in making the process a little easier we at All American Self Storage in San Mateo can provide you space for the unwanted clutter and provided you with some helpful tips when it comes to divvying up the house hold chores.


You Can’t Split Chores by a percentage in a Marriage

As we start trying to quantify things we open ourselves up for fighting about who is and who isn’t doing their share of the work. Instead you and your spouse should be willing to help out around the house 100 percent of the time. If you see something that needs to be done, take a few minutes out of your day and get it done. You can even divide particular tasks as to what you are good at. The key is communication and a good attitude.


Teach Everyone How to do Every Chore Properly

When you get your family involved in the household chores you want to make sure that everyone knows how to do every chore properly. This is a great time to teach your kids the fundamentals and give them a sense of responsibility. Once they know how to do each chore properly you can then assign them to do a variety of different tasks each day. This way no one is stuck doing the dishes or cleaning toilets every day of the week.


Create a System that works for your Family

If you do assign chores or tasks at home, remember that people tend to complete them better to a system. Keep the chart on the fridge or in your home’s command center, and then make sure they get done by a specific date. Having a visible list is all the motivation that some people need. Some need extra motivation such as longer play times or even a random treat for completing all of their tasks.
