The other day I got an email from Rebecca, a senior at UC Davis. I don’t know Rebecca; she just wanted to let me know that my blog had inspired her. Isn’t that cool? She and two friends are living together in a house this year, and were looking for a way to assign chores. She googled “chore wheel” and found my post. The chore wheel has been effective for three years in our house, and that’s a record for us.
Here’s her version. I like how she put it on a bulletin board with a pushpin in the middle to turn it. So smart and simple…why didn’t I think of that? Mine turns works fine on its brad, but the pushpin didn’t even occur to me when I was searching high and low to find that stray brad.
I’m impressed that these girls are so organized with their chores and bills. I honestly don’t remember how we did it when I was living in a house with two other girls. Of course, I was only 17 and they were 19, so maybe we weren’t too worried about it.
What were you like in college…super organized or not so much?
