Inspired

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?

I was pretty organized. Paid my own bills ,car payment and tuition.
My Mom helped as she could.

Great ideas.

I think it's awesome that she took the time to email you and share her version of the project. So many people would just take credit for the idea themselves. I think a chore wheel is such a cool idea. :)

How sweet that she emailed you! I love that! I am totally impressed that she's doing that in college. I was a slob and my roomate was a neat freak. She used to yell at me if I left my books on the table instead of taking them to my room. It was like living with my mom, but I loved her anyway.
