How To Make Chores Not Suck As Much – A Ska Playlist

Toddler Approved!

No one likes chores. No. One.

Whether it’s the holidays, spring cleaning or just a Tuesday, we’re probably still going to be doing some cleaning around the house. It sucks, especially when we’d rather be doing literally almost any other thing.

Reading a book, baking, watching that fav movie… so much better than chores!

Let’s face it… you’re probably online, right now, avoiding that dire pile of dishes or not folding the clothes you know are just going to end right back up on the floor. Hell. I prefer the dentist to chores. But… we do what we gotta.

So, in an effort to keep the pain to a background ache, I figured adding some bouncy music to the mix might help you all out, too.

Don’t get me wrong… you’ll probably end up doing some sort of boogie scoot around the living room a couple of times while distracted by this playlist, but you’ll still be moving your butt, and checking “exercise” off that checklist, today, will feel just as good as anything else you get done!

Nothing seems to get my foot subconsciously tapping like Ska does, so here’s a toe-tapping laundry list of fun 90s Ska featuring Less Than Jake, Fishbone, Save Ferris, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Reel Big Fish, and more!

Give it a whirl and send that omnipresent cleaning angst packing!
