JoniProductivityLeave a Comment

Happy November everyone! I thought I’d get this month started off right by continuing our discussion on routine. We’ve talked about daily routines and weekly routines so it’s only logical to start this new month discussing monthly routines.

Creating and Keeping a Daily Chore Routine

JoniHome, ProductivityLeave a Comment

Housework. Ugh! Everyone loves a well-kept house but household chores are a beast. The most important chores (laundry! dishes!) need to be done every day.
