Sometimes it’s a good idea to set aside preconceived notions and reconsider everything from the ground up. Whether you are relatively new to homemaking or, like me, have been keeping house for decades, I think we could all use a fresh approach now and then. That’s why I’m beginning a new series here on Life With Dee – Homemaking 101.

Together we will explore every aspect of keeping house from cleaning to budgeting to meals and much more. I’ve been homemaking for 4 decades and while I feel like I’ve got a handle on most of it, I must admit it feels a bit stale. I want to shake things up, explore new methods and most of all, change my attitude about it.
Here is a partial list of Homemaking 101 topics we’ll be addressing in the coming weeks:
- Daily upkeep
- Setting up a laundry system
- Weekly cleaning
- Monthly cleaning
- Creating a homemaking binder/notebook
- Decorating on a budget
- Stocking a pantry
- Meal planning and grocery shopping
- Basic cooking skills
- Decluttering and organizing
And anything else I can think of or that YOU tell me you’d like me to address. Yes, I want to hear from YOU.
Whether you work full-time or part-time, work outside the home or have a home office, children or no children, male or female…if you are responsible for the care of a home you are a homemaker. Our situations may differ and our approaches will as well. However, we all want reasonably clean and comfortable homes, clean clothes to wear and tasty food to eat.
