This unique and straightforward chore planning system is for moms who are trying to balance creative endeavors with their desire to have an orderly and organized environment in their homes. Initially offered in traditional ‘book’ format, it is now a printable chore list in e-book format for readers to download and print. An app is in development.
The system is designed to help you complete chores and tasks throughout the year so that you don’t spend your entire day doing housework. To help you organize your priorities, the printable chore lists have the daily necessities listed as chores, and the less frequent duties listed as tasks. If, while pursuing other goals, you miss the tasks scheduled for a particular day, you don’t have to ‘transfer’ those tasks to the next day. Just remain focused on completing daily chores and do the weekly scheduled tasks as they fit into your schedule and family lifestyle. The tasks you miss will come up again on another day.
Above all, the Motivated Moms Chore Planning System is NOT intended as a guilt planner! Motivated Moms is all about reducing stress, not adding to it, and making home management easier.
The printable Motivated Moms Chore Planning System comes in over 16 versions, with full size or half size options, a week per page or page per day, color or black and white, and there are versions that include a daily Bible reading schedule. A newer format is the two page per week layout. The membership also includes the very popular Clean My House Planner which is a stripped down list of just housecleaning related tasks.

As friends who met online, Deann Polanco and Janet Russell collaborated for several years on the Motivated Moms chore planning system. Beginning in 2005, Janet wanted more time to spend on other interests and Deann took over the business. Deann and Susan Cramer met in 2006 and a friendship grew over the years. In 2010, Susan’s husband, Norm, wrote the first Motivated Moms app for Deann. In 2011, Deann was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Susan helped Deann keep Motivated Moms running when she was physically struggling. When it became apparent that Deann would not beat the disease, she offered to sell to Susan. Susan accepted and is honored to carry on Deann’s legacy.
