The Good Old Days of Household Management

Some of my friends may remember seeing handwritten chores taped to the refrigerator. My Mom would post weekly chores for my cousin, Kenny (Bucket) and me. They had to be completed before we were allowed to do anything else like go out to play,  or invite friends over to visit. There were no self-cleaning ovens back in the day. I was the oven cleaner. My Mom worked full-time but took care of the home and never seemed stressed like parents do today.  We had other extracurricular activities but she had a say in what we could participate in and those activities could not interfere with our academics, her work schedule or our finances. She had a system which included getting the necessary help from everyone in the home. I’m saying, she ran an efficient household! Does your household run like the good old days?

Is your family overwhelmed with too much going on inside and outside the home which is causing stress and chaos?  Let me know and I can help. Contact me.

By the way, does anyone remember seeing the chores taped to the refrigerator in my home? Leave me a comment.
