This week we return to scheduling tasks for the public areas of your home (rooms seen by guests) with a weekly chore list specific for these areas.

You can alternate the cleaning of public and private areas, keeping a more doable cleaning schedule for yourself and your family. The advantage of using a list is two-fold; you won’t forget anything and chores can be divided by family members.
