Four Helpful Husband Reminders: Creative Ways to Communicate - Master Getting the Man’s Attention with These Helpful Memos

Share Article

When household duties and activities pile up, rather than giving up, the following four helpful husband reminders can effectively communicate what needs to be done to balance duties and stress levels for a happier and more organized home.

If the house needs to be cleaned, the cars are overdue for an oil change and the barren refrigerator needs to be filled, rather than allowing one’s to-do list and stress to grow to epic proportions, an easy way to feel less overwhelmed is simple – delegate duties to the other half of the household. However, whether it is the husband or kids, it can often be difficult to remind everyone of what tasks need to be tackled and how to complete them correctly. Rather than giving up, the following four helpful husband reminders can effectively communicate what needs to be done to balance duties and stress levels for a happier and more organized home.

1.    Checks and Balances
Rather than telling a husband to pick up the five last-minute ingredients for dinner as he rushes out the door, simply check the boxes next to pre-written grocery lists made from several manufacturers. Many lists are broken down into food categories such as breads, dairy, fruits, meat and spices with check boxes alongside items as well as additional lines for notes. Check a few boxes, hand it to the husband and easily feel more balanced with one-less thing to do.

2.    On the Calendar and Off the List
Forget about squeezing everything into a day and assign certain tasks for each day of the week such as groceries on Sunday, ironing on Monday and wash on Tuesday. By keeping a consistent schedule for tasks, it not only eases the anxiety of determining when to get things done but also frees up the mind from constantly having to remind everyone of what needs to be done. Try posting the weekly chores list in a place where everyone can see it, such as on the refrigerator, to keep helpful husbands and busy children up-to-date on the day’s to-do.

3.    Peel and Post
An inventive way to make sure a loved one notices the request to pick up the dry cleaning among other tasks is to surprise him. Post a reminder in places he wouldn’t expect such as a bathroom mirror, car window, bedroom wall or closet door. One way to do this is with WallPops, the premier line of peel-and-stick wall art from Brewster Home Fashions.

WallPops offers Dry Erase items that include Message Boards, Calendars, Dots and Maps in all sorts of colors and patterns, from funky and festive to the best of nature’s bounty. Additionally, new peel-and-stick Weekly Dry Erase Dot Packs (available to consumers in May) include eight 6” Dry Erase Dots for each day of the week and an extra Dot for notes to stay organized is a great way to post a reminder for the other half. The new designs include Apps that have a pop art pattern on each, such as an envelope for Monday, a phone for Tuesday and a sun for Friday and the Holiday design that includes a global city trademark on each day of the week Dot such as the Eiffel Tower for Sunday, the Statue of Liberty for Thursday and the Taj Mahal for Friday.

4.    Sync and Save Time
No matter what computer, software or cellular service one has or prefers, most people use some type of online calendar. Rather than having spouses constantly consult each other about activities, deadlines and items to accomplish, the majority of online calendars allow one to sync a calendar with another person’s schedule. This allows all events to be merged as well as reminders. Simply sync calendars with the spouse and add home duties and the like to have technology be the taskmaster.

It is easier than ever to reel in a husband’s attention in order to remind him of what to do for a smooth-running home.
