A young housewife and new mother recently asked me for a list of things to do each day to help her stay on top of her household chores. Here is what I gave her.
-wipe up kitchen, plan dinner
-wipe up bathrooms
-sweep kitchen floor
-put away items before bed
-laundry, grocery shopping
-iron clothes, water plants
-dust whole house
-vacuum whole house
-mop floors, change linens
-clean glass surfaces, clean bathrooms
-attend church, rest, plan menu and grocery list for next week
Each week, pick one of these items to accomplish.
-wipe down fridge (inside and out)
-vacuum and dust behind furniture
-change filter for heater/air conditioner
-wipe walls and door trim
Every home will have different chores that need to be done. The point is to break up the work into smaller chunks and do a little every day. Try it!
