If the words “pick up your dirty laundry,” are on a constant loop, welcome to the club. Keep your daily routine in order and chart a course for clean this summer. We’ve picked 10 of our favorites chore charts that range from toddler to teen, and electronic to seasonal. A few are free, and a few can be purchased for a nominal fee. And really, isn’t a few bucks worth paying to keep our sanity in check? Click through the slideshow below to see them all.

Keep It Colorful

This delightfully bright idea comes from Mommy Moment. Instead of just giving a general chore, each paint chip strip includes several tasks for one space: the bedroom, the bathroom, the kitchen. This way, since kids can easily get overwhelmed when asked to pitch in, there’s a very specific list of things that need to be done. Best of all? You can make these handy cards for free. You can grab more details over at Mommy Moment.
