Welcome to part 6 of my year-long series where through the year I will share with you each element of the monthly packs available to our Sweet Life Society members!
Admittedly “monthly pack” is a rather vague description of what you’re getting. So I hope this series provides clarification and gives you some ideas on how to use each piece of the pack. This way you can see what you’ll be getting as soon as you decide to make the leap and join us in the Sweet Life Society!

When you were young did you ever dream of growing up and not having any more chores to do?
Well, if you’re reading this I figure you’re kinda like me, looking back and chuckling, just a touch chagrined at those thoughts – because there are a LOT of chores to still do as adults, even if we don’t always call them that!
Chore charts work great for kids. They serve as a reminder of what needs to be done and give that extra sense of satisfaction seeing the little checkmark next to a task that’s been completed. But just because we grew up doesn’t mean that we don’t still benefit from seeing visual progress. Here are a few ways you can use the chore chart:
Printable Chore Chart: The Traditional Method
First, you can use this printable chore chart in what I call the traditional method. That's where you write out the chores you need to do each day and then check them off as you complete them. You can do this for yourself or your children, like the example below. This one is from the June 2019 monthly pack. You can still access past packs in the club, because only a small part of it is dated – therefore, if you like a design from a previous month, you can totally use it. This is one of my favorites:
Printable Chore Chart: Track Multiple People
Since our chore charts are fairly long with lots of lines, you can use one chart to track tasks for multiple family members. You can add a line with each person's name and list their tasks below. It would look like this (from our May 2019 pack):
Printable Chore Chart: Reuse It!
One of my favorite things about the monthly packs, is that we give you google sheets and excel versions. That means you can go in and easily edit them to your heart's content. If you have the same chores each week, you don't have to write them out again each week. Instead, simply open the Google Sheets version from the club, type in the blanks and print as many as you want! If you're not familiar with how to use Google Sheets (it's free and easy), here's a video where I show you how to customize a pack from the club.
Tracking progress is a great way to develop a habit or form a routine, so don’t save the chore charts just for the kiddos! Print out a free chore chart from the July Monthly Pack today!
