Can you believe that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar just celebrated their 26th anniversary? 26 years, 19 kids, and one busy household! Through thick and thin, the Duggars have stuck together. How have they kept their sanity over the years? Let's find out! And if you're as disorganized as I am, you might want to take some notes.
With 19 kids, how on Earth do the Duggars stay organized?
Their secret is a little thing they call "jurisdictions" (aka "chores"). Everyone is assigned a specific area of the house to clean and maintain. They work in teams so one person does not have to juggle dinner and 12 loads of laundry on their own.
"Everything is scheduled," explains Michelle Duggar. "It's written out on a chart. It's in columns, and it's all color-coded." The younger Duggars wear "chore packs," little lists that pin to their clothes and tell them what to do next. Handy, right? The inspiration came from Titus2's Managers of their Homes and Managers of their Chores.
