I just discovered HouseHoncho this afternoon and I am delighted!
If you sign up (for free) you’ll get one email a day, which gives you nine home tasks: three easy ones, three medium ones, and three “advanced” ones.
Here’s an example of today’s email message:
Good evening! Tomorrow we are focusing on the living room/family room with this list! Remember, don’t put pressure on yourself to get it all done. If you pick 3 items–in any combination–you will make a difference in your home today.

Keep it simple!
Your HouseHoncho Team
Isn’t that beautiful and simple?
HouseHoncho moves through the areas/zones in the house, one per day of the week, like this: (I couldn’t resist putting it into HomeRoutines to see how it fits!)
There’s some great housekeeping advice on their Kitchen Table blog, and their Daily 5 routine list is sensible too.
House Honcho also has a page on Facebook.
If you sometimes need a little inspiration on where to start, HouseHoncho looks like a fantastic service. With 9 little missions per day to pick from, there’s bound to be three jobs that suit your home and your available time and energy. Plus: it’s just one email!
