Home Tips For An Undomestic Goddess

Running a household is not an easy task. Having to juggle housework with your job and taking care of the family is not definitely a challenge. Being an undomestic goddess is common nowadays but that shouldn't mean that you cannot get the tasks together. Here are just some of the easy ways on how you can run your home like a pro!

Keep To A Budget

Even if you don’t particularly enjoy much else about running a house it’s still absolutely crucial that you keep on top of your finances. If your finances are okay then most other things in your life can run relatively smoothly. Make sure that your outgoings don’t exceed your incoming and if you find it hard to keep to your weekly budget then try withdrawing cash at the start of the week and refusing to allow yourself to use your cards.

Learn Some Staple Dishes

If you aren’t a big fan of cooking, no sweat – there are plenty of easy dishes that you can learn to make that won’t take up too much time. All you need to do is make sure that meals are nutritionally balanced – other than that they don’t matter too much. If you’re making something like curry or lasagna then make extra and freeze it so you have a quick and easy dinner for one night in the future.
Set Time Aside To Clean

If you hate cleaning then remember this mantra: clean is more important than tidy, and good enough is good enough. Your house doesn’t have to be spotless and uncluttered at all times so long as you make sure that your basic hygiene is fine and that your kitchen and bathroom are clean. Make sure that you keep on top of basic tasks like sweeping floors, changing sheets and washing laundry so that you don’t have a huge pile of domestic chores to do at the weekend that you’ll inevitably resent. If you have the money to do so, why not invest in a cleaner who can come every so often to give your house a deep clean so you don’t have to do it? Even if it’s pricey you won’t regret it.


Find What You Love

Even if the whole general homemaking process isn’t something that you particularly enjoy, chances are you’ll be able to find something that you love and that you can contribute. If you love art then you can pick out great pieces to go on your wall. If you love baking then you can make sure that you invest in the best appliances like the 600 series Kitchenaid, 6-qt mixer so you can make the best possible cakes. You will absolutely be able to find joy in some parts of looking after your home.
Assign Tasks To Your Family

Remember that you should absolutely not be the only person in your family who’s doing cleaning, tidying and cooking. We’re in the twenty-first century so you and your partner should be doing equal amounts of domestic chores. If one of you is a stay at home parent then the percentages of who does what might be different but the point is that you should absolutely be doing equal work – and work in the home absolutely is still work. Make sure that your kids also have some tasks that they can do like cleaning their rooms, vacuuming, washing up dishes from dinner and taking care of pets to teach them some responsibility.

Here are just some tips that you can use to make home management easier. Whats your take on running your household? Comment down below.
