The schedule of household chores

Cleaning, we feel that it is never finished and we let ourselves overflow! We barely have time to redo the bed that the dishes are again to do, we just happy to have defrosted the fridge that it’s time to polish the floor … Between daily tasks and the largest chores that come back cyclically, it’s like we’re always late. To get out of this hellish cycle, the ideal is to try to keep up to date the list of chores, classified by frequency and by room. It does require a bit of discipline, but you will never have to blush your dusty lights or your worn-out doormat!
