As I said in my earlier post about my Morning Routine that when I started trying to be a better housewife I was having a hard time getting everything done, as soon as I would clean something it was messy again.
So I made myself a morning routine and an evening routine. It took some time for me to get them down and to make them a habit, and I found I needed to adjusting it as I went, tell I found what worked for me. and still to this day I change it a little from time to time. Hey life changes so, so do our routines.
Here is my Evening Routine
5:20pm Put a load in the wash (I have a laundry routine I follow to the T and now my hubby never says, "I'm out of underwear!").
5:25pm Start making dinner
6:00pm Serve dinner. Eat as a family at the dinner table.
6:25pm Put wash load in the dryer or on the line.
6:30pm Make lunches for the next day.
6:40pm Tidy kitchen, do dishes, turn on dishwasher, wipe counter, quick vacuum the kitchen floor, under the dinning chairs and the front door entryway. I have the Swiffer SweeperVac that I use for a quick pick up.
6:55pm Clean up for bed (wash my face, put Pj's on etc...)
7:05pm Straighten up the bathroom
7:10pm Do a walk through of the house (picking up anything that is out of place and putting it in my keep box)
7:20pm Clean out keep box
7:30pm Relax with hubby until bed. Maybe fold laundry if I'm up for it.
I Hope this gives you some good Ideas.
