About The Company:
Motivated Moms is a company started by two moms who created a system designed to help you complete chores and tasks throughout the year so that you don’t spend your entire day doing housework.
They have an app for the IOS system and one for the Google system. (Some reviewers reviewed the app, be sure and click on the link at the bottom of the post to see more reviews.)
The Motivated Moms Planner is a simple well thought out planner that makes keeping house easy. Literally!
The planner is not meant to cause stress it is meant to make your life so much simpler.
How does it do that you ask?
By simply taking all the thinking out of it. Tasks are planned out for you each day. Don’t go thinking this means you are not in control, you still are. There are ways to personalize it and delegate tasks by using a highlighter. There are also extra lines to be able to add tasks. For example personalize it to your garbage day by quickly writing in garbage day on each day it is your garbage day.
The choices in a e-book planner are tremendous. I chose the half size chore planner. $8.
About The Product:
The half size chore planner printed two weeks per page. I tried to save paper and printed mine double sided. That did not work out to have the pages in order. I was kind of frustrated about that whole ordeal. But afterword, I figured what does it matter. It’s not like they have to be in order. I only have to find the page once a week and they are generally close in the vicinity of the previous weeks page. After using the planner, it really wasn’t an issue.
Ok- Each page or week on the planner has a list of things to be done daily. Things like:
- Make Bed
- Feed Pets
- Sweep floor
- Empty Garbage
- and more
Each Item has a checkbox for each day of the week. You just check off when you do the item. There are blank lines too, so you can add to your daily list if you need to.
Each Page has a list of the days. Under each day there is a list of chores for that day. Along with checkmarks and blank lines to add your own chores.
Some examples of these chores are:
- Change sheets
- Water plants
- Sweep porch
- Clean bathroom counters
- Straighten Closet
- and more
These chores are what I considered the extras. My main priority was to get all the daily ones done by either doing them myself or delegating out the task to another family member. I also worked the second list of chores the same as far as delegating them out.
Our thoughts and feelings:
This chore list works well for me. My kids know where I look to assign chores and this way the house can run fairly smoothly if I am not around to assign chores or haven’t done it yet.
I do like that it is the smaller half page papers and takes up less space on my shelf. I even got a small half page size binder for the pages to go in. I appreciate the simple black and white basic look as far as printer ink goes. I wish I had chosen the color option as it is something I get to look at all year round. That was my choice.
