Who Does What In Your House?

    Do you get help with the household chores? Who does what and how often? Do you have a "chore chart"? Or does everyone just know what they have been assigned?

    There's only hubby & I live in our house. But we both have a good share of the chores. Normally we both help with the cooking (we both work 9-5, Mon-Fri). Then both wash up the dishes afterwards. We normally do our household things on a Sunday.
    Hubby's tasks are:
    • * Making breakfast everyday [​IMG]
      * putting the towels, undies and bedding into the washer - washing it - tumble drying it and putting it away
      * putting the "hangy-up" washing on
      * Ironing of his own shirts
    • * Cleaning bathroom
      * Hanging up the "hangy-up" washing
      * Ironing of our trousers and my tops
      * Polishing
      * Mopping floors
    Both of us:
    • * Dishes (I wash, he dries)
      * Hoovering (depends who is more energetic lol)
      * Putting rubbish out
      * Grocery Shopping
    How about in your house?

    well ...

    Our only "rule" as such is that whoever is home from work first cooks the dinner, so I have to say Subby probably cooks slightly more often then I do, washing the dishes is also a shared chore (usually whoever didn't cook)

    Taking the rubbish out is subby's job.

    Subby can take my rubbish out [​IMG]

    What about cleaning the bathroom? I'm ashamed to admit but it's my favourite household chore LOL!! I love how sparkly everything is when it's clean.

    I do it all -- it's me, myself, and I. Men wouldn't have a chance here: my dad was the cook, did the laundry, and a lot of the cleaning.

    We don't have a chore chart or anything like that, we work together to get things dome.

    Ideally, I would do most of the kitchen stuff while the girls picked up the rest of the house. But here lately, I've been sick & unable to cook or clean. And the kitchen shows it. I think I'm going to spend today, no matter how much I hurt & want to lay in bed, cleaning the kitchen. Ugh, I really am not looking forward to it.

    I do all the laundry, everyone picks up their own bathroom & bedroom, the girls take turns clearing & wiping the dining room table, and my oldest takes out the trash. I vacuum once a week, on Fridays so the house is usually pretty clean all day.

    We work as a team really, but sometimes I have to remind my husband that certain things need doing.

    I usually do all the inside work and he does the outside work. I hate to shovel or mow so it works out great.

    We don't really have an agreement here... there are things I do and things he does. Like someone else said, I hate mowing and weeding and things like that, so he does those. I do the cooking although he knows his way around the kitchen, too. :)
