Running a Household Smoothly Tips

Here are some helpful hints to run a household more smoothly:

  1. Keep a large empty drawer, storage box or laundry basket handy for instant cleanup when an unexpected guest is on the way.
  2. Keep instruction booklets to your appliances in a handy notebook. Same goes for household couments, mortgage agreements, insurance policies, and so on.
  3. Add shelves above your washer and dryer and add colored plastic baskets – one color per family member. When you unload the dryer, place their clothes into the respective basket for each member to fold and put away their own clothes.
  4. Pin the menus for the week on a bulletin board – with the recipe titles and cookbook reference page.
  5. If you have trouble getting started in the morning, get organized the night before. Lay out your clothes, measure the coffee, and the breakfast table before you go to bed.
  6. When lining garbage bags, always put a few extra in the can. Then remove the bags, one at a time, when needed.
  7. To save time at the grocery store, organize your grocery list according to the isles in the store.
  8. Designate one area of your home for filing business papers, letters and clippings.
  9. Attach the non-skid cuts for tub are effective on slippery high chair’s. The child will feel safer and more secure.
  10. Use petroleum jelly to lubricate drawers to open smoothly.
