Creating Chore To-Do Lists
No one loves doing chores, but there are some apps that can help make it more bearable and maybe even a little fun.
Wunderlist: Wunderlist syncs across all devices and allows you to share lists, due dates and other details with others. Now, your family members, roommates or significant others can’t claim they “forgot” it was their turn to vacuum the living room or take out the trash.
EpicWin: EpicWin takes assigning and completing tasks to another level by gamifying chores. Simply assign yourself some household chores and a character. The app will put you on a journey and give you points for every task you “vanquish”.
When it comes to getting down to completing spring cleaning tasks, it can help to know where to start. These apps can help.
Home Routines: Instead of compiling your cleaning to-dos in one long list, Home Routines breaks down your home into zones that are more manageable to tackle. It also suggests common cleaning tasks to do in each place, so you don’t have to remember to write all of your to-dos down for each room.
BrightNest: BrightNest is full of tips to keep your home clean and running smoothly. The app even encourages you to take a quiz before using, so it can provide custom advice and tasks that apply to your home needs.
Not only do these apps help you get things done now – they also help when it comes to establishing helpful routines for the future. If you get into a cycle of regular cleaning habits, you can make cleaning tasks simpler and easier. That way, you can spend more time outside in the beautiful weather and less time checking off your to-do list.
