6 Ways to Make Housecleaning Less of a Chore
We've heard people say that a great relationship is achieved through teamwork … but let's be honest, translating that philosophy into getting things done around the house can be a challenge. Sure, it's easy to be on the same team when it comes to picking up dinner or attending that work function neither of you really wants to go to. However, when you're exhausted after a long day and the laundry and dishes are piling up, even the biggest team player can want to hide under the bench and hope someone else makes the play.

We sat down with Blueprint Registry co-founders Lizzy Showman and Nevin Shetty to discuss their favorite ideas and products to get you and your significant other involved around the house.
