The Bottom Line

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

The very first and most important step to running a home smoothly, consistently, involves PLANNING. 

Today, consider planning what gets done around the house. Just sit down with a piece of paper and write a list. Don't worry about organizing it or breaking it down. That will come later. Write down:

1)The things that NEED doing. (Vacuuming, dusting, window washing, etc.)

2)The things that MUST be done. (Meal prep, bathroom cleaning, laundry, etc.)

3)GOALS that you would like to accomplish (in the area of home making, not hobby). (Putting up freezer meals, making charts, putting together a home binder, couponing, etc.) 

I took the time to make a little document for you to download if you like. I filled out one so that you could see what it might look like.

If you use this, I'd love to see yours! 
What are somethings that MUST be done in your house, "or else"?
