The Original Homekeeping Schedule

Does this sound familiar?

Homekeeping wisdom at its simplest:

That’s right – from the Little House on the Prairie books!

Though our modern day conveniences don’t require us to churn our own butter or beat our clothes on a rock (praise, you Lord!), the basic premise is the same:  having a regular housework routine helps our households run more smoothly. 

Here’s mine:

  • Monday – laundry, laundry, laundry; plan weekly menu
  • Tuesday – music lessons, errands while I’m out
  • Wednesday – mop, usually more laundry
  • Thursday – clean bathrooms, take out garbage and recyclables
  • Friday – wash and change sheets, vacuum
  • Saturday – finish laundry, look over homeschool lessons for the week
  • Sunday – rest, water plants
Hmmm…laundry related chores three days a week. Maybe Ma and I aren’t so different after all!
This doesn’t include the stuff I do every day, like cook, wash dishes or sweep the crumbs off the floor…add in teaching mornings Mon-Fri now that school has started up again.
Do you have a regular household routine? What tips and tricks do you have for getting (most) everything done around the house?
