A Complete List of Household Chores

No matter how hard he works, there is always something your submissive man can be doing around the house. There are daily, weekly, seasonal, and annual chores, and those that must be completed as needed. He should also always have a few projects ready to work on when he has down time. By keeping your homemaker busy, you’re able to help him avoid the frustrations of down time, and ensure your constant satisfaction.

Daily Chores

  • Make beds
    Your bed should look inviting.
  • Put dirty clothes in hampers
    He should make sure your dirty clothes are off the floor.
  • Wipe down sinks and tubs after use
    Everything should look clean every time you use it.
  • Clean up after meals
    He should make sure dishes are cleared and put into a washer or cleaned.
  • Clean floors (vacuuming, sweeping, mopping)
    Every walkable surface should appear and feel clean.
  • Check toiletries (soap, tp)
    All necessities must always be stocked.
  • Straighten up
    To me, this is the most satisfying- having everything in its right place, as he is. 
  • Empty trash cans
    Trash shouldn’t accumulate.

Weekly Chores

  • Regular cleaning-
  • Change bed sheets
    Weekly, or as needed.
  • Vacuum
    Weekly, or as needed.
  • Wash all other floors
    This is the Cinderella scrubbing.
  • Dust
    … but use a swiffer or static duster. Feather dusters may seem sexy, but they really just spread the dust around.
  • Wipe down all contact and high visibility surfaces
    Counters, table tops, windows, mirrors, stovetop
  • Clean the bathrooms
  • Clean the kitchen
    This is a deep clean; He should clean out the fridge, sink, and microwave.
  • Laundry
    Wash. Dry. FOLD AND PUT AWAY.
  • Grocery shopping
  • Yard work (cutting the grass, weed wacking, edging)
    Just because he’s submissive, doesn’t mean he gets a pass on the men’s work. After all, he is still the “man” of the house.

Monthly or Seasonal Chores

  • Turn mattresses
    Get the most out of ‘em.
  • Wash pillows
    These really do fill up with dust and mites.
  • Clean lamp shades/ dust light bulbs/ light fixtures
    More dust magnates
  • Clean oven/ grill
    Cut down on smoke and carcinogens. 
  • Organize drawers, cabinets, and closets, rotating seasonal items
    This is essential to keeping track of things, and ensuring that you actually use the things you have.
  • Wash windows
    A dirty view out the window can have a negative subconscious impact. Optimize your light and have a clear outlook.
  • Clean ceiling fans
  • Clean gutters
  • Replace air filter
  • Wash the cars
    As necessary, per your standards.

Semiannual Chores

  • Wash blankets/ comforters
  • Discard/ donate unused clothes
  • Clean walls
    This may need to be done more frequently with children or pets.

Annual Chores

  • Power-wash exterior
  • Clean garage
    This is the primary utility space. Optimizing it is essential.
  • Clean attic
    This is the primary storage space. Optimizing it is essential.
  • Clean grill
    There are probably a lot of little things like this that he forgoes, causing depreciation and wasting money.
  • Clean under large appliances
    These places can collect a lot of dust and debris.
  • Shampoo rugs
  • Organize household records, Review insurance, Pay taxes
    Make the nerd do it.

Now put your homemaker to work and relax, satisfied that you have trained him well and will get the most out of him.

  1. Hey,
    Just 2 question..
    1) how your relationship impact on your children ‘s life? See 1 parent that make all chores in the house and other does anything?!
    2) what does the woman do in the house?!..
    Sorry for my bad English..😅😅😅

    1. Hey, thanks for the questions.

      Both my wife and I work, and although I do all of the chores- cooking, cleaning, and other housework- she does more to take care of our children. Although they may notice that I typically cook dinner and tidy up more, they aren’t around or are asleep when I do most chores. Other than that, my wife and I are discrete about our relationship.
