Track Your Chores

Most days it seems like my kids know what their household responsibilities are, but they have the attention span of a goldfish, so they get sidetracked after just a couple of tasks.

I’ve bought chore charts at the store before, but they don’t always align with our family’s tasks, so I decided DIY is the way to go. It’s so nice to be able to customize these fun chore charts, and give them a visual of what needs done! I like to add a few easy peasy tasks (like, “Say I love you to someone!”), to give some encouragement on getting things checked off.

Here are a few of the cutest DIY chore charts floating around the web…

1. Hot Wheels Chore Chart

Interactive chore charts are far more motivating, in my experience! Drawing the track in chalk allows you to continually switch things up. Get the instructions HERE.

5. Cookie Sheet Chore Charts

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
