Getting the House Organized with Motivated Moms

With a new year looming, many people are looking to organize their homes. My children came to me with a request for 2012. They wanted to order Motivated Moms. We haven’t used Motivated Moms in a couple of years, but they liked the system so well that they wanted to reimplement it.

Motivated Moms has daily, weekly, monthly, and periodic chores, all on printable pages that you can place wherever is convenient. We have our sheet up on the fridge where everyone can access it. The idea is to keep up with a little bit of cleaning every day so that nothing piles up. Clutter spots are attacked in small increments so that it isn’t overwhelming.

I will say we have only ever used the secular weekly planner, so I can’t honestly attest to any of the other versions. The one we have is easily tweaked to fit our family, and the kids like crossing off things as they get them done, just as I do (nature or nurture?). No one forgets to help out, and those days when it feels like nothing is going right and I’m not getting anything done? I can look and see that I am getting things done, just perhaps not what my plans were.

The download is only $8, which is not bad for having almost everything our family needs already made into lists. Earlier this week I was able to use the code HAPPY for $1/off.

One thought on “Getting the House Organized with Motivated Moms

  1. Oooh, this is very inspiring. I have tried to get organized in the past like this and failed miserably. I like how it seems that she break down tasks (like cleaning the fridge, cleaning the bathrooms) into smaller parts so you don’t have to do it all in one chunk, all in one day. This is how I work, for sure. I think I might give it a go!
