There are three modes of cleaning. Relaxed, Standard, and Proactive. By choosing your style of cleaning it will automatically suggest the amount of days, weeks, or months for the preprogrammed cleaning guide. This is really amazing especially since it suggests things that someone might forget like washing your outside Windows or wiping down your inside doors. I highly suggest you just load everything in that is listed for each area unless of course you don't own it (e.g. I don't have glass shower doors in our upstairs bathroom so I didn't add in that task). It's well worth the money and the capsule colors keep you in line with what area needs the most attention. I personally check each zone every day to see what's in the red (meaning what's either due or behind). Also I love how it keeps track of how overdue I am on a task. For instance I actually made a zone called cat, lol. In the zone I put throughly wash cat box every two months, empty poo every day, and change the pellets monthly (we use the Breeze system), as well as change pee pad every ten days. It is amazing how many times I get busy and time slips by and it will read throughly clean litter box as all red and I will think to myself man two months went by already? My only suggestion for using this app is not to wait for the main area to be red. Check the areas daily. There is notifications that you can set to remind you when tasks are due or overdue so you can set those up as well. I love this app.

This tool allows you to set a frequency for each household task. Tasks are organized by room, and there are also options for the whole house, garage, and outdoors tasks. Initially, you choose one of three levels for how clean you want to keep things. This sets a default frequency for each task to get you started. Then, you go through and adjust the tasks, areas, and frequencies to your liking. The app creates a cleaning list and shows tasks with color coding to represent how urgent/ close to due the tasks are- green for not due for awhile, red for overdue, etc. There is a pause button for seasonal tasks. For example, packing school bags can be paused for the summer and weeding the garden can be paused for the winter. It is also possible to schedule infrequent tasks that happen every few months or even yearly. The thing that makes this better than a typical cleaning checklist or schedule is that items can easily be scheduled for unusual frequencies. Maybe every week is too often to clean the shower, but two weeks is too infrequent. It is easy to set the frequency to 10 days because the app will keep track for you, optimizing your use of time. And if you don’t get to it, the app will keep rolling it over to the next day for you. If you decide to do it a couple days early, the app will adjust for that, too. This is one of the most helpful apps that I use day-to-day. I highly recommend it.

I’ve been using Tody everyday for over a year. It helps me to prioritize chores as a working mother—since I can only do so much in a day! I never have that feeling that I don’t know where to begin because it shows me what needs my attention the most. And then once I accomplish that, I often end up doing the next item on the list, then the next and the next. I also love that it shows my progress over time and I am always challenging myself to keep the level lower than before. My house has definitely become consistently cleaner over time and I spent 0 time thinking about it. And for those days that I’m exhausted but could maybe accomplish “just one thing”... I know what to do. It manages that “overwhelmed and don’t know we’re to start” feeling because it shows you exactly what needs your attention the most. And it gauges my progress over time so I’m always trying to challenge myself. It has improved my home and my attitude over housekeeping and takes the thought process out, which is usually the very thing that keeps from getting started at all.

I have been trying to find a method to track chores and know what needs to be done, making my own spread sheets/charts, all sorts of to do lists and apps, and nothing worked for more than a few days. I’ve slowly been personalizing this app and it fits my life much better than anything has before. There are only two little suggestions I would have for future improvement, but they don’t make me want to use this less. One I’ve modified for, it would be nice to have a way to denote something that isn’t necessarily a “home chore” and have it not look like a room of the house. I’ve named my own “space” for my morning routine, etc., and it works, so this isn’t a huge deal. The other suggestion I have is to include a way to have chores that come due on certain days of the week or dates of the month for chores like taking the garbage can out or paying the utility bill. Little things that I can set to have other ways to remind me. Overall, well worth the small cost to finally have my household chores managed with little stress to me.

A long time ago I relied on an index card system. But in today's world it just wasn't working for me. Just never enough time to shuffle and organize my box. So I began the hunt for an app. I tried many. But there just wasn't anything close to the organization of the index card system I had. Until I found Tody. Tody isn't perfect. But in my opinion is the best in the market. It keeps everything neat and is easy to use. It's simple to customize to your home and the specific jobs you want to do. You set the pace on when you want each job done and how frequently you want to do it. I even set other goals other than cleaning up with Tody to keep on track. The only thing I would change- Tody rolls on from whenever the last time you hit 'done'. So if you set a task for every week -say it should be done on Sunday and do it on Wednesday then Tody will remind you a week from Wednesday. In some cases I like the rolling timeline but I wish there was an option of setting a hard date. Other than that. Tody rocks. 👍🏼
