Any parents who want to get (and keep) their children more involved in household chores
What is included?
A fully-laminated flip chart, allowing for all sections to be checked with a dry-erase marker and/or customized by Mom or Dad with a wet-erase marker.
Instructional DVD that walks children through the process, demonstrating the correct way to complete each task. The DVD also gives parents tips on how to best utilize the program.
Basket labels used for cleaning the bedroom.
This fun and unique chore system is designed to help children visually and systematically work through cleaning the kitchen, living room/entry, bathroom and bedrooms independently and with ease.
Step-by-step illustrations make chores simple -- non-readers can easily follow along! Simply flip to the first page in the laminated flip chart and follow the illustrated instructions. Use the included dry erase marker to check the box then flip the page!
I saw that the people who had purchased this system more than 3 months ago stated that they were having issues with the book holding up. Have you resolved that issue? Do you offer the different zones on different clips? And are the pages now truly laminated, not just glossy or waxed? It sounds as though the system works, but the book needs to be more durable and simultaneously usable. Thanks!

The Zone Clean "n' Fllp is still coated and not laminated. We do now offer a digital version of the Zone Cleaning, which allows parents to print the pages off and laminate them as an option. Thank you for your feedback, we do appreciate it.

We love this but we ended up having to cut the flip chart apart and then reattach each section with key rings so that each child can use it at the same time. Other parents have said they'd love it if it came separated like that. You really should consider doing that. I think it would be a huge selling point! :)

As a result of great feedback and suggestions from our customers, the Zone is now offered in digital downloadable format so parents can make multiple booklets for each child. We appreciate your feedback. :)

My disc doesn't work - it keeps freezing and skipping. How do I get a new one?

Is this appropriate for a 5 years old
Asked by a Parent on August 4th, 2016
We've heard many parents that had great success with that age group. All the chores have pictures as well as text to follow so even if your child has not learned to read yet, it should still work.
My kids love doing this. It gives them a sense of accomplishment to be able to easily complete each chore and then check off the box.

Five months later and my house is still sparkling clean. We use Zone Cleaning once a week. I did end up taking the flip book apart to separate it by rooms so that each child could use their section at the same time. I poked holes in them and hooked them together with a key ring. But the program is fantastic, so thorough, and my kids actually enjoy helping keep the house sparkling clean! A must have!

I really love the concept and check list format. My son took to it right away. Now if only I could use it on my husband . Took off one star, not easy to use with multiple kids in a family.

Three Kids Using = Clean House

Very helpful at making my 9 year old son be able to do his chores independently and well. My 12 year old girl loves the ease of it. My 5 year old girl is already catching on. My house is now cleaner that it has ever been. I used a little bit of creativity and the extra spaces on the Back of the flip side to modify the book so we use one book for 3 kids and it works great.

Not helpful for multiple kids

I was really excited about this, but was disappointed to find that ALL the zones are in one book. So kids either have to take turns to do their chores, or I need to order an entire new set for each of my kids, which wouldn't be worth the money. I feel this is overpriced for what you get.
Trigger Memory Co. is owned and operated by Jennie von Eggers & Marillee Flanagan, sisters. They have been in business since 2003. They are two homeschool moms that were looking for an opportunity to help kids and have a small business. Jennie von Eggers created the stories for Times Tales in 2003 as a quick way for her two grade school boys to learn their upper times tables. She got tired of the same old boring flashcards. Jennie is always looking for unconventional ways to teach her kids. They have since published Zone Clean 'n' Flip products as well at the Memory Trigger. Most of their children are now in college but both the homeschooling adventure as well as their small business has been a blessing to both owners.
