I posted this picture on Instagram the other day, and got lots of interest in our family “job” system…
With a large household, it’s imperative that the entire family get involved in house cleaning. We have “jobs” and like any job in the real world, we pay “commissions” for them. At a whopping rate of $0.10 a job 🙂 But I feel like it’s teaching responsibility and money management and teamwork, etc. I’m working on a future post to tell you all about our system and what’s working for us.
So on the topic of jobs, check out the excitement that showed up at our house…. it is a BISSELL Powerglide and it’s going to be awesome!
Our current vacuum is great, but it is HEAVY. Like crazy heavy. My favorite thing to anticipate in this new vacuum – it is LIGHTWEIGHT!! Here you can see our stairs in our entryway – – and how excited the kids are that they will actually be able to maneuver a vacuum for stair cleaning (I should have included a picture of myself, jumping for joy!)
So stay tuned, to see if I get it cleaned up, to hear about how the BISSELL PowerGlide does on the stairs and in the car, and to learn more of our family chores. Lots of info coming up that you won’t want to miss. Meanwhile, you can check out these cleaning tips from BISSELL and a post about Celebrating Everyday Messes (we can all relate to that!)
