Our Chore Jar

This week, I decided to create a chore jar. This idea came about because I feel like Matt and I are always "stuck" doing the same chores each week which isn't always fair to both of us. Also, our schedules are full right now which is fine for us because they are intentional however, that just means that household things have been somewhat neglected. In an effort to keep that from happening, the jar was created.

I just took a vase that we had and wrote all of the chores that need to be done on index cards. Each day, each of us will draw a card and complete the chore on that card. There are a few free days on the cards as well. The chores we included were:

-take out all of the trash
-clean the sinks
-clean the toilets
-clean the tubs
-feed the fish and change his water
-sweep the floors
-wash and put away the dishes
-water the plants

These chores are the main chores for us right now.

We just started the jar today so I'll try to remember to let you know how it goes! :)
