I was looking around for something to keep me on track with housekeeping things and after being a FlyLady failure (a few times over - the sink shining thing gets me!) I needed something different. I looked at some downloadable programs and the Motivated Moms list thing, but then I discovered Chore Buster. So far, I like it! I like that it is customizable even if it is a bit of work to set up... so many of the other housekeeping organizer things had chores (or just the frequency of those chores) that didn't make sense.

I haven't quite completed my list every day, but that's because the house is in BAD shape. I've got it set so that I'm supposed to declutter a different area of the house each weekday and I'm getting about a 1/4 of each area done because well... it is too much to finish without Mr. Mischief getting into something. I've got it set so I don't have any major chores on Saturday or Sunday, so I'm hoping that this weekend I can get caught up a little bit so it will be manageable to keep up during the week.

So, does anybody else use Chore Buster?

I checked it out, and it looks cool. I haven't tried it though.

Never heard of it before, but I just signed up and got a chart started. Hopefully it'll work out well for us cause I'm a Flylady failure too. :)

Flylady flunkie here too...I found it just didn't work for families without a SAHP.  Chore Buster looks good...I started a list.  We just need something to keep us accountable.
