Thank you to reader Kay for sharing her thriving at home tips.
I am a grandmother now and have been married for almost 50 years.
When I was a young mother and literally struggling to cope with babies, husband, housework, shopping etc. My mother told me to be sure to try to do three things that will help to keep a tidy home:
- Make the bed
- Keep the sink free of dishes
- Fold the clothes as you take them off the line.
There was still quite a mess at times but having those three things done seemed to make the other chores less stressful.
My two daughters used this “plan” and I believe they still think it’s a good one, even though other things might be pretty chaos the essentials seemed to be done.
