What people who Spring Clean Year 'Round are saying

"Travis- your Spring Clean Year 'Round invention has been like a sacred guide for us for a happy marriage--at least in terms of chores--a huge blessing!"

Ryan P.

(received as wedding gift)


"Travis, I received the cleaning system today and I LOVE it. I have already put all my cards into their days and months. I am so excited to start using it. Thank you SO much for all the effort you went to to make sure it was the colors and patterns I wanted. I truly do LOVE it!!"

Blessings on you,
Diana S.

"I'm not an organized person AT ALL! I thought I'd be overwhelmed with this product but I love it! It helps me break down chores into manageable pieces. I do a little bit each day and my two girls can help too. They love picking out their cards for the day. It is like 'paint by numbers' for cleaning. I love the flexibility it provides. Some days are crazier than others so I can reorganize my cards depending on how the week is going. It is one less thing that I have to think about!"

Marcie C.


"I just wanted to let you know I received the chore box a few days ago and I already started using it and I feel like I'm actually getting things done! This is so cool! This is such a neat idea! I will definitely tell my friends about this...."

Thanks,

"I just wanted to THANK YOU for your product! I have never liked cleaning and it has always been a struggle for me. However, Spring Clean Year Round has helped me learn to enjoy cleaning. I have found a freedom in the idea of doing a little bit daily, weekly, or monthly rather than being overwhelmed by all the chores a few days of the year. My kids even enjoy helping! It feels so good to have a clean house with so little work required to keep it that way!"

"I just wanted to say thank you - I'm really satisfied with my purchase. I love the personalized service that you offer, the colour and I love the concept of the idea - i.e. being able to get my cleaning schedule in order. The pretty box will take pride of place in my kitchen. Today I showed one of my workmates and she was impressed. I will certainly continue to show off 'my little box' to friends and colleagues and hopefully get you some customers."

Debbie C.

"I was going to wait to give my daughter your kit (it was supposed to be an Easter surprise) but I just had to email you to let you know how much I appreciate your work! Plus, I caved-I gave it to her tonight! She LOVED it! She went through most of the cards while here and said it was really something she would be able to do! She has recently been diagnosed with some health problems and is in the middle of planning her wedding. Your Spring Clean Year 'Round will enable her to get everything done in little bites at a time. Thank you so much for finding the colors! They are perfect!"

Thank you again!

About the product

This is  my system for keeping my home clean all year long without a week dedicated to "Spring cleaning"...ack, who wants to do that?? A friend called it a perpetual "to do" list. It keeps me accountable to see the cards staring at me, asking to be completed and refiled! I have found that it is much easier to maintain a clean house than to transform a filthy, disorganized house. This system will allow you to put minimal cleaning time in every day and have the peace of mind that your home is always clean! I used to wonder when I last dusted the ceiling fans, or the pictures on the walls, or checked for spiderwebs. But now, I don't worry about it because I have a system to remind me to do all those things regularly, so there aren't any forgotten chores.

Best of all, the simple organization and user friendliness assists parents to involve their children in the housework, making them more diligent, efficient, and appreciative, and giving them a feeling of accomplishment, confidence, and importance to the family. Age recommendations are made for each chore and are general guidelines. Supply lists and helpful hints are also found on each chore card, and the entire system is designed to be customized to fit your unique family's needs.

This is a cleaning system consisting of a comprehensive list of chores that need to be performed regularly for the average home. Here is how it works: you will receive 68 chore cards and daily and monthly dividers. Chores are categorized as twice weekly, weekly, monthly, twice monthly, every other month, etc. These recommendations are based on my personal experience and extensive research. The chores get sorted behind the monthly dividers based on seasonal appropriateness. Any chores that are classified as monthly or more frequent are sorted behind the number dividers. Each month, the additional chores (that are less frequent than monthly) are filed into the number dividers that represent the days of the month (1-31). For example, on September 1st I would go to the September divider and bring all those chores out to be sorted into the number dividers, spreading them out and being mindful of weekends, vacations, and days with lots of activities and less time for big chores. On September 3rd, I would look behind number divider "3" and perform those chores. Any chores completed would be refiled appropriately. For example, a weekly chore would be moved to the "10" (to be done on September 10th), a monthly chore would be left in place for the next month, etc. Any yearly chores would be filed back to the September divider and every other month chores would be refiled into November. I placed an example week of chores in the margin on the right as an example of one of my weeks in my chore box.

I have found this method of organizing my cleaning schedule to be so freeing! I no longer have to expend any energy trying to remember when a chore was last done, or rack my brain to think of a chore for a willing child. I direct any willing bodies to the chore box and let them choose a chore and refile it too! I don't have to worry about forgetting any chores, or noticing a forgotten chore when I have company!  How do I get my children to be willing? I require them to "earn" screen time by completing their chores. I have assigned minutes for the chores and they take the responsibility to keep track of their earned minutes and have to mark them off when they "play" them off. When they are older, we will switch to monetary compensation.
I know you will love this concept and wonder what you did without it (besides stress out about the possibility of someone dropping by unannounced)! I hope you will tell your neighbors and friends about the freedom and peace of mind this cleaning system has brought you!

Currently, I am assembling each system by hand, and will make every attempt to fill your order promptly. See me working hard?
Once your payment is received, I will ship your cleaning system directly to you. Each cleaning system includes: 1 hand decorated tin (see below for available colors), 2 sets of organizing dividers, 68 chore cards, 3 instructional/informational cards (you will want to read these first to get you started) and 5 blank cards for your personalization. The current price is $24.99 plus shipping (typically $5.35 for priority mail) plus delivery confirmation. I can't wait for you to get started! I know you will be blessed! Be sure to see the post below for more pictures and color choices!

I just ordered one of these. Brilliant. It is just the thing I needed. I've been contemplating doing some kind of perpetual list on index cards but it would be so ugly. Thank you so much for solving my problem.

When I get my kit, I'm going to have to do a blog post on it. I hope you don't mind a little extra traffic. :)

Quick question...

I have kind of a loose "schedule" of things I do on a regular basis. How hard would it be to add cards in? Or...write it in??

Thanks!
Mercy

(btw, I signed up to win already but I just want you to know I LOVE the idea lots!!)

Jen Gillespie said...

What a great idea. I love it! Is there anyway that I can purchase just the cards? I don't need anything to hold them in, but I would love to implement the program. Let me know! Jen
