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.
If you’d like a quick start, there is a fun, FREE 4-day challenge beginning tomorrow, June 16th:
