Housework doesn’t have to suck!
Hi, I’m Rosie! I designed HomeRoutines to help you manage the repetitive jobs that are part of all our lives, particularly the ones related to housework. HomeRoutines is the app to wrangle those recurring tasks, and keep them from cluttering up your email, your calendar, or your big to do list.
HomeRoutines is simple, encouraging, and designed to support the structure of housework systems that you already know and love, while still remaining flexible to your own customizations or your own way of working.
In our app, we’ve brought together some of the best big ideas in home and household productivity, mixed them up, given them a good shake, and put them together again in a new way.
Do you keep your household running with one of these?
- FlyLady Control Journal
- Organized Home Household Notebook,
- Daily 7 jobs from Totally Together Journal
- Brain On Paper from HabitHacker.
All those sorts of lists fit very easily into the HomeRoutines app on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
Just have a look at our reviews and you will see how delighted our users are with HomeRoutines.
* The HomeRoutines iPhone app works really well with the FlyLady system , but HomeRoutines is not affiliated with, or endorsed by, FlyLady and Company Inc, nor any other housekeeping system .
What you can do with HomeRoutines:
Create as many routines as you like, and choose on which days they will appear, and when they will reset. Each time you complete a task, you give yourself a gold star. You can manually clear your stars, or have them reset every day or on days of your choosing.
People who use HomeRoutines have used this feature for everything from exercise goals, study reminders, simple menu planning, family fun, and words of encouragement.
HomeRoutines includes a simple to-do list, so you don’t have to run a separate todo app if you don’t want or need to. No prioritization, due dates or contexts here either; we’re keeping it simple and getting things done.
Sometimes it feels like you’ve been run off your feet all day long, but haven’t actually achieved anything. The HomeRoutines accomplishments screen lists everything you’ve marked as complete during the day so you can pat yourself on the back and say “Go me!”
We’ve adapted the popular idea of dividing your home into five, six or seven “chunks” or focus zones, on an (optional) rotating schedule. You can choose to have a zone of the day, or follow the pattern of Flylady’s zone schedule with one zone per week of the month.
