Saturday Chores with Kanban Part II

Saturday Chores with Kanban Part II

Two weeks ago we started using kanban to manage the Saturday morning chores for our family. We have learned and are doing it again this week. Check out how the girls surprised me with their own approach to vacuuming the master bedroom!

    I did a Kanban almirah for my study plan at last night. it is interesting. This really helps me track my progress. It also reduced lot of stress i had earlier. Now studying is becoming little bit fun.

    Another fun and educational video. Thanks to your entire family for sharing (even though Mom was off-camera). I’d be interested to know if the girls continued to break down their tasks and at some point figured out they were spending more time running down to move a card than doing the work? If that happened, did they adjust the card size back up or was that part of the fun?

    Thanks again
