Umm....my husband does alot of stuff since he's at home all the time.  I am usually in charge of laundry.  I do have to nag my husband to get him to do things but he's gotten alot better, especially lately.  But we don't have any set plan, although I think we might switch to a loose plan so we can finish getting the apartment in order.

I'm in charge of most of the housework. dh works more than I do, as he clocks more than 60 hours per week, easily. so during the school year, not much gets and stays done.

I do 90% of the housework so sometimes it doesn't all get done. My mil found a site that gives you 15 minute organizing tips everyday that I'm going to try to start doing.

My husband does all of the housework, except laundry, because I am OCD about laundry, so I would rather do it myself. He is a full-time SAHD, so he says it is his job to clean the house and take care of our son and all of the yard work. We have done this arrangement for some time, because it works for our family. I am the one that carries our medical insurance, so we stays home. He takes my son back and forth to school, runs all the errands, and I come home to a clean house. He is OCD about cleanliness, so it is nice!

I do a little everyday and prioritize what needs to be done the most. I have also given up the idea of having a house that is fully clean.

This sounds pretty close to me.

They are nicely divided. I have the cleaning responsibility on the weekends and my husband does during the week (when we're each at home). We just trust that each other is doing as much as they can. Our house is usually messy, but not dirty. I don't think we'll be able to get it much better than that until we get rid of the toddlers in the house! haha.

This. And, I don't clean bathrooms; my husband takes care of those.
