A couple months ago I shared with you how I had updated the chore charts for our kids, now that Malea is getting older, and we have a teenager living with us. The updated chore charts seemed to be going well but after a few weeks I noticed the girls were forgetting to do some of the chores because they weren’t hung up and displayed, like I used to have them in our other house. So when Post-it Brand emailed me and asked me if I wanted to try out some of the products from their new Home Collection by Post-it® Brand, Scotch® Brand and Command™ Brands, I knew right away I was going to use them to organize and display the chore charts.
I thought the new wall in our kitchen would be the perfect place for our organized chore charts because it’s pretty bare, and it’s not visible from the main living area. Plus it’s kind of our unofficial “command center”.
I started by framing both of their chore charts, including their Jobs for Hire lists, which are jobs they can do to earn extra money.
After hanging them on the wall I added the Post-it View and Go Pocket, which was the perfect solution to holding the extra money they can earn (so it doesn’t have to sit on my dresser anymore). I slid in two envelopes to hold their individual money.
I also added the Command Clear Caddy to hold dry erase pens so they can cross off their chores as they complete them. My teenager isn’t as into that but my 5 year old thinks crossing things off her list is super exciting! 🙂
To cuten it up a little I added some washi tape around the outside and inside of the caddy. Next to the caddy I stuck a Post-it
Magnetic Grip Disc to hold a towel for erasing the lines on the charts, at the end of every week.
Then of course I had to decorate the Post-it View and Go Pocket and label each of the girls’ money envelopes to make them look cute too.
I love the way it turned out and now it’s easy for me to remind the girls to do their chores because I can see what has been crossed off their lists, or not. I also love that using Command strips to hang everything will make it easy to take it all down when I’m ready to change it up again and I don’t have to worry about my new wall being damaged!
