Organize X 3 – Engaging the Male in Chores

Welcome to Organize X 3…

Organize 3 Series Button

Do you remember my commitment?  Let me refresh your memory; 1 post, once weekly (Wednesday), 3 tips.  I only have one comment…FAIL!  I have missed the last two weeks.  Shame on me and I don’t have any excuse but bad time management.  That’s a topic I will definitely need to cover for the future.

Over the weekend I was shuffling through some magazines and I came across a Family Circle Organization magazine from 1994.  Yes, you heard me.  1994.  Most of you young bloggers were probably still in diapers.  Eeek, I’m dating myself so I will just say I was interested in organization at a very young age and learned to read long before kindergarten! Ha!

Looking through the magazine I found an article titled “Partners In Grime, 10 Ways To Get A Man To Help” written by Sherry Amatenstein.  Too funny, right?  Of course I must share, but every post needs some humorous pics.  These didn’t come from the article.  I just pulled them of the internet.

So which man do you want to help you with the chores?

It’s been 16 years since this was written.  What do you think?  How do the ten tips apply today?
