How to Use Chore List Software for Making Household To Do List

Effective household management requires effective software tools. Chores list software allows you to prioritize cleaning work, schedule accurate deadlines and tasks, and keep track of upcoming events and overdue tasks.

Prioritize House Cleaning Work by Rooms

Prioritization helps define what items in your household chores list will come up first. By setting right priorities you put more difficult yet important and pressing tasks at top of your list, while less critical and not urgent duties remain waiting for your attention. This approach is particularly helpful in house cleaning. When you are going to clean up your house, you need to organize your chores list the way that high-traffic rooms get a higher priority.

For example, your bathroom, kitchen and hallway are frequently used by you and your family, and therefore they get dirty much quicker and stronger than other rooms of your house. These areas will require more attention, and you should keep them prioritized in your cleaning to-do list. VIP Task Manager lets you rank your tasks by several priority levels (from "Lowest" to "Urgent") and also organize your entire chores list by categories. The highest and urgent priorities will be placed to the categories that represent the high-traffic rooms of your house. Then you can sort and group your tasks in the chores list software to display the most critical house cleaning activities at top.

Schedule Deadlines for Chores

Because time is a non-recoverable resource, people need to effectively plan the way they will use their time in advance. Otherwise, they will just waste their time and get nothing. Effective planning and scheduling will help you be more successful at your household management and prevent occurrence of delayed items in your to-do list.

By scheduling exact deadlines for your home chores and assignments you always know how much time remains till task completion and on what items you need to focus immediately. The challenge here is that accurate scheduling requires you to clearly realize what time a particular task will take till completion.

Tips for Better Scheduling

Consider the following tips to solve this challenge and schedule right deadlines for your task:

  • Take a look back and remember whether you did this task in past. Your last experience will definitely help you schedule realistic due dates and durations.
  • Analyze your current schedule and find empty spaces that can be dedicated to your new task.
  • Be honest regarding your abilities and make sure you are able to complete the task on schedule.
  • Figure out what resources you have available and whether they will be sufficient for the doing the task.

Calendar View for Task Scheduling in Chores List Software

In addition, you need to consider your current job priorities for their relation for your new task. Perhaps, some of them can be done in parallel with the task, so it will take less time of you to complete your work. In VIP Task Manager, you can use Calendar to schedule activities and their durations.

Calendar view for Scheduling in Chores List Software

The chores list software allows you to display your tasks in the daily, weekly and monthly views. For example, the daily view is helpful for planning the daily agenda of your household management, while the weekly view is best for scheduling medium-term assignments that come up on Monday, Tuesday or another day of the next week.

Keep Track Overdue and Upcoming Events

Doing tasks out of schedule is frustrating. One of the key reasons why your deadlines were broken and household chores remained uncompleted could be that you just forgot about your work (you were busy, tired or whatever else). Actually, forgetfulness makes us believe that everything is ok while in truth it’s not – we disregard our duties and then pay much for our mistake.

Chores list software provides a solution to fight forgetfulness and avert procrastination. You can keep track of overdue tasks as well as upcoming events by receiving email reminders and alerts. For example, in VIP Task Manager you can set reminder for your tasks. When the reminder is due the program sends an alert right to your inbox or desktop. If you fail completing your tasks and so there are overdue items in your chores list, they are highlighted with red in VIP Task Manager database, so it becomes easier for you to detect delays and take immediate action.
