Lately I’ve been feeling a little ho-hum about all the ‘stuff’ I need to do to keep this house and family running.
The lists of things that need to be done seem to get longer every day and the time to accomplish them gets shorter. Add to the fact that it is a never ending cycle – just when you think you are on top of the laundry, or meal prep, or cleaning, you have to start all over again.
It’s enough to drive anyone bonkers!
So I’ve been wondering, perhaps I am making all this harder than it needs to be?
Perhaps there is an easier way to manage all the tasks involved with running a house?
If I could just simplify things a little…
Spurred on by a recent cleaning revelation (which I’ll tell you about soon) I’m on a mission to “Keep it simple, stupid!”
I’m looking for simple tips and tricks for running a household. I’m scouring pinterest, I’m asking my friends and family, and I’m asking you, for your best, simple ideas.
