20 Chore Tuesday!

(picture by Emily at Joyful Abode blog)

For almost a year now, I've been using my Instagram account to post pictures of my cleaning progress around my then apartment, and now house. I'd do like side by side before and after pictures when I tidied up, or post a picture of my to-do list for the day and whatnot. As I got into a better routine of cleaning up with 2 babies in the house, I realized I really prefered using one day a week to knock out a bunch of chores! It feels so good to have that huge cleaning day, and I wasn't getting that by doing just a handful of chores everyday. I started using the hashtag #20choreTuesday, almost as a joke at first, but it has REALLY taken off! It has more than 300 photos, and many of the people posting their own 20 chore Tuesday progress I don't even follow; so that shows that it's grown beyond just my humble IG page.

("#20choretuesday" hashtag!)

One of my favorite IG-ers, Emily at Joyful Abode , has been one of the more faithful 20 chore Tues participants, and asked if she could bring it over to blog world. Of course I said yes, because her blog is awesome and I knew she'd do a great job keeping up with it. Well now she hosts 20 chore Tues on her blog every week! And you can go "link up" your blog/list to it, even though I don't really know what that means yet. Sounds awesome!

Here's my list for today:

Get Cleaning!! ;)



  1. you're so awesome! I always find your before/after shots super-motivating and i'm glad to "know" you on IG. :)

  2. I love your before/after shot! I'll have to remember to do that. :)
