Household Tasks for couples

Household Tasks

 

Most people do not realise what it takes to run a house so below is a basic example of the list of stuff that most people need to do to run a house.

 

Often one person takes on all of this load without any problem but after some time, it eventually becomes an issue. 

 

Tasks: 

  1. Look at the list and add any jobs and delete any non relevant jobs.  Then adjust items from one area to another that suits where you are at now.  IE if you clean your oven more often than once a month, then move this to the correct place.
  2. Highlight on the list what you currently do.
  3. Highlight what things you think your partner should do but not you
  4. Consider what you would consider passing to your partner so it feels more equal
  5. Highlight items where standards are higher for one person than the other so this may cause disagreements
  6. Highlight items that you would consider paying others to do (wdw cleaner, gardener etc)
