Motivated Moms Planner...

Anyone do this?

I printed one out last year and kept up with it for a few months. It was WONDERFUL! Our house looked great pretty much all the time. And I felt really accomplished checking off the little "to do" boxes.

(for anyone who doesn't know - HERE is what I'm talking about)

I'm getting ready to get mine for this year (late, I know...). I think it will help DH keep up with household stuff after I have the baby, and help me settle back into our routine after I heal... anyway, I was thinking --- anyone know of something similar, but better?

What have you tried like this that has worked well for you?

I need something physical that I can carry with me and write on. It helps me. So internet-only type stuff is probably out.

Re: Motivated Moms Planner...

I am going to be checking this thread. I have heard good things about this, I am considering using my swagbucks to get an itunes card to get the iphone version.

I've done it in the past and loved it. My house looked great. I have a different check list I work off now (a more generic one that I made that is geared more towards my house) but sometimes I go revisit my old motivated moms checklist if I feel my new list is missing something.

Me too!

I think my sister uses this, or something like it, and her house looks amazing. Of course, it helps that her husband likes things clean as much as she does, and they're both good about keeping on top of the chores. I have a lot of laziness (mine) and uninterest (DH's) to overcome, but a checklist may be the way to get myself started.

Re: Motivated Moms Planner...

It IS awesome. I am just wondering if there is something better before I buy it.

Re:unmotivated and lazy... I am both of those. It takes a lot of will power and determination to get moving. It's worse pregnant. But i swear just having it all written down in a quick, simple format seemed to make it so much more manageable for me, and less overwhelming!

Re: Motivated Moms Planner...

I had Becky from Clean Mama Printables on Etsy make me a custom docket. I print it out every week and meal plan on it as well. I need to have her re-do it or find something else though bc it was totally geared towards how my life was with a newborn/infant. But, she was really great.

Looks awesome, but I think my printer would die. I wish they just sold them in a binder
