Would you like to share household chores more fairly ? Don't put off this discussion with your partner any longer! Let's start with a few pieces of advice which will help you better manage the most annoying chores. First of all, make a list of your weekly activities. Then, divide them equally between the two of you, and add your initials next to your chores. Finally, buy a big erasable whiteboard, which you'll copy this list on, and hang it in your kitchen in order to be able to consult it every day. After a week or two, take time to take stock together to see what works and what doesn't.
