I am so unorganized when it comes to cleaning our house. Yesterday, I got together with a good friend of mine, Stephanie, to create a "chore chart" in hopes of keeping track of what we wanted clean each week. My goal is for Christopher and I to spend 10 or 15 minutes each day so we don't have to spend an entire Saturday morning cleaning the house. We will see how long this lasts.
We recently discovered that our kitchen door leading to the garage is magnetic. Actually, Ashlyn discovered it when she started sticking magnets on it. So I decided to use it as my "chore door."
I painted it black using an interior satin paint that we had in the garage. Painting it black has absolutely nothing to do with anything other than I thought it would look cooler than the plain white door. I used scrapbook paper to make little flags with the days of the week on them.
The chores are on little magnets that Stephanie and I made - I can just stick them on the day of the week that I want to complete them.
So that's my little arts and crafts project for the week. I probably could have had the house cleaned in the time it took us to make the little magnets.
But that wouldn't have been any fun, right?
