Housekeeping is one of the unavoidable necessities of life. We all have to do it, wherever we live, whether caravan or five bedroom suburban fixer-upper (that would be me).
I spent many, many years trying to solve the 'housework' problem by avoiding it, procrastinating, then having to perform giant, exhausting cleaning blitzes which left me feeling like keeping house was an enormous, depressing impossibility.
Enough was enough, and I spent a year developing a daily plan to keep our family home consistently tidy and clean for our six family members.
I don't follow this schedule rigorously every day, because life happens! But I follow it enough that the house is mostly always tidy, and clean enough to make me happy.
And having a clean and organised house - really does make me much more relaxed and happy. I hope you find something that helps here, and if you have a schedule that suits your particular family circumstances, let me know in the comments - I would love to link to it.
