Chore Busting

I often find myself overwhelmed with household chores.  With no hired help, my hubby and I have to self-delegate tasks around the house, like vacuuming the floor, mopping the floor, cleaning the toilets, taking out the trash, ironing clothes … well, you get the idea…the list goes on.  The chores always seems unending, and you know, we have even considered getting extra help, what with house cleaners now available for several hours at a minimal price.  However, my hubby and I feel strongly about having strangers in the house, even for a few hours and because of this, we would rather do away with hired help and get the chores and tasks done ourselves.  Yes, it is sometimes stressful and I don’t doubt that it is difficult, but it definitely can be done.

As such, I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered Chore Buster.   Chore Buster, very simply, is a website which enables one to organize one’s household chores, and most importantly, everyone in the household gets a FAIR share of the workload.  This means that with Chore Buster, no one gets away with shaking legs and not doing anything.  Isn’t that great?  I just signed up for an account (it’s FREE by the way), and proceeded to enter the names of the people in my household and a list of chores that needed to be done.  There is also a very cool option to import pre-existing chores specified by Chore Buster, i.e. chores that most people might commonly have, such as cleaning toilets and taking out the trash.  Of course you can also add in your own specialized chores.  I was also able to customize these chores by complexity, frequency, dates I would like them done, and the start date.  On top of that, if I wanted to escape doing a certain chore, I just simply selected the option to exclude myself from that particular chore. Heh heh….

Now, the thing I like about Chore Buster: it will send periodic emails to the people you have assigned these chores to.  You can choose whether you want the emails sent out weekly or daily.  This will ensure you get bugged with emails if you do not complete your chores.  The chores for each individual person can also be printed out on sheets, much like a to-do list.  And when chores get listed, they normally get done faster than when they’re not.

I am amazed that so many people are already benefiting from Chore Buster.  Now I know why.  Go ahead, go check it out today.  Getting chores done at home will never be the same again.

  1. I hate having strangers in my house. But I hate cleaning even more. So I have the maid come every other week.

    Ok, I’m TERRIBLY bored at work today that I’m reading your old post! How desparate is that?! Just realised that you don’t have hired help. I salute you, fren. I would die without one, now that I’m used to it.

    The Giddy Tigress says: Whoa…hope that boredom didn’t last, but I am flattered that my posts helped to kill your boredom.
