Storing the lists in one central location ensures that everyone can access them easily.
Everyone knows at least one person who is super organized. They seem to create checklists in their sleep and manage to get more done than anyone else they know. If you admire this type of approach to time management, there are things you can do to make your own home better organized. By creating daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly checklists to refer to, you’re never without guidance on what needs to be done and when.
Daily Checklist Must-Haves
Some of the tasks that must be included on the daily checklist are simple housekeeping tasks such as making the beds in the home, washing the dishes, pots, and pans that have been used, taking out the trash, hanging up clothes, and sorting the mail that comes in.
Weekly Checklist Must-Haves
These things can be done weekly:
- Cleaning out the fridge.
- Shopping for groceries.
- Putting away groceries.
- Doing laundry.
- Dusting, sweeping, and vacuuming each room.
At least once a week, do the tasks on the list.
Monthly Checklist Must-Haves
Stay on top of these things to do monthly:
- Paying bills.
- Cleaning the oven inside and out.
- Removing items that are no longer needed and donate them to charity.
- Cleaning the mirrors throughout the home.
Once a month, make sure that the aforementioned items are done.
Yearly Checklist Must-Haves
The yearly must-haves that you want to tick off your list include:
- Updating activity binders.
- Flipping mattresses.
- Washing windows.
- Cleaning the yard, garage, and shed.
As long as you’re staying on top of the daily, weekly, and monthly chores, you’ll have less to do when it comes time to do your yearly chores.
List making is a convenient and easy way to stay on top of the important tasks that need to be done daily. Keeping the sheets of paper housed in a BinderBag reduces physical clutter and allows everyone in the household to know where to retrieve the checklists. The end result is a better system for staying on top of all the tasks needing to be done. There is less stress when important tasks, projects, and appointments aren’t overlooked.
