Household Chores Planning and Cost-Efficient Lifestyle

Hello Lovelies,

If you, like me, are a darling homemaker, running a home, and controlling all resources and expenditures then this blog post holds valuable information which I have gathered through the years that may be useful to you.

Running a home is not the easiest job in the world.  Homemaking or housekeeping dates back to many years ago.  It is a profession that many if not all women hold today.  As it was done in the past it still hold true today, housekeepers develop in advance which way they are going to run their homes.  Ways which can help keep alleviate headaches or unsuccessful planing.  Now, being a homemaker requires skills, we need to make plans, write those plans down, and use those plans as a road map to accomplish desired tasks.  For example, coming up with a system that will work with everyday household tasks will be the first and most important customary practice that needs to be developed.

From personal experience I have found a calender or agenda works best for me, but whatever works for you will be the correct choice.  Below is a sample of my weekly housework routine.  This is just to give you an idea on how to plan.  Remember, keep in mind that what works for you is the correct way to plan.

Monday- Laundry, check the week baking and cooking preparation, appointments, and daily tasks.

Tuesday- Execute what was scheduled. For example, exercise routine, washing dishes, sweeping and mopping the floors, vacuuming etc...

Wednesday- Ironing, mending, and sewing.

Thursday- Roll out the trash can for trash pick-up.

Friday- Sort out laundry and begin planning for next week.

Saturday and Sunday- Rest and enjoy the family.

Sharing some of these chores with family members can alleviate the heavy loads of work. 

Now, when a homemaker does her shopping she is in control of how much money needs to be spent.  Buying  good quality, but at an on sale price.  From my personal trial and error learning it is wiser to buy items on sale rather than spend full price.  Pay only full price when the items are extremely important and necessary for the family or the home.  Keeping a list of all the items needed  is crucial as it prevents impulse's on buying items not needed.  Another great way to save money is to always be on the look out for sale specials and pay close attention to deceptive ads.  Thrifting is also a great way of being resourceful so when possible take the time to thrift.This ideas are a great way to keep the budget under control they have worked for me in the past and I hope they work for others.

Well, this is all for now, I hope this little bit of advise helps and keep in mind that as a homemaker you are the most precious jewel to your family.
"Her price is much higher than jewels." (Proverbs 31:10)

  1. Nice post! Just recently I have been trying to get housework done on a weekly schedule. It certainly helps get rid of those "why is this so dirty? when was the last time it was cleaned?!" moments.
