My God-mother posted & shared this one Facebook yesterday, and I wanted to share it too...plus a few extra ideas. This looks like an incredible way to organize household chores & 'to-do' lists. Thanks Bakerette! She has lots of cool stuff on her site, too.
Other ideas I have are:
1. ALL YOU-At least two Friday's & Sunday's a month on the FREE days, carve out an hour or so to work on 'your' projects like; scrap booking, crafts, hobbies, a special hike, or anything you LOVE to do! Make the time for yourself.
2. MONTH Up & Comings-First Friday of the month-glance ahead on your calendar for any birthdays, celebrations or events you have upcoming for the month. Write out your list of ingredients, plans, or 'to-get's. If you're mailing cards, take a moment to sit down & write your correspondence, address, & put a stamp on so it's ready to go. (November is a great time for Get-It- Done Friday's. Work on Christmas plans, gifts, cards, or other items to make, wrap & get ready to send snail mail if that's your choice.) 3. DIY days-At least two Friday's, Saturday's or Sunday's a month plan for one of your household projects to get done. If you've wanted to paint a room-take the time on one of those days, seen some neat ideas on Pinterest-try you're hand at it or any other DIY project. You'll have a WHOLE new home or space to enjoy & be proud you got it done!
4. RECRUIT-If you have children, recruit them to help do these chores on some of these days. They can take out the garbage, dust, clean toilets, put away their laundry-gauge it for their age (big & little) but there's plenty of ways to work together as a family team!
