Looking for homemaking advice? My name is Katie Berry, and I’m here to help you turn your house into a haven.
As a wife and mom, I learned to manage my home efficiently and thoroughly, largely because I’d rather do so many other things than spend the day cleaning house.
Homemaking Advice that Helps
Here on Housewife How-Tos you’ll find:
- Efficient printable cleaning routines
- Homemade natural cleaners
- Free home organizing guides
- Family-friendly recipes
Running a home, especially when you’re also raising kids, can seem like a never-ending series of tedious chores.
There’s always a pile of laundry waiting to be washed, folded or put away. Dishes pile up and as soon as they’re done it’s time to make another meal. The bathrooms seem like they only stay clean for a few minutes. And, while you’d love to vacuum the floor, it would first take an hour to pick up all of the toys.
Homemaking Skills Can Be Learned
We all want a comfortable home where we can relax and be ourselves. Some want
Not everyone learned when they were growing up how to clean house or organize their homes. Many of us don’t know how to plan or cook an entire meal from scratch. It’s not that we aren’t interested — it’s just that no one ever showed us how.
It’s time to change that, and I’m here to help.
I Learned to Clean House, Too
I’m not a new stay-at-home mom or housewife. I’m not even a young mom or housewife. I’ve been raising kids for over 28 years now, and have spent 17 of those years as a SAHM. I know what works, and what is a waste of time.
I’m not making this up as I go. These are the cleaning and organizing solutions that I use in my home and have for years. I know they work, and because I’ve been testing my methods for years I know they won’t cause long-term damage to your home or possessions.
You deserve solutions that work. Your life is busy enough. You don’t need advice that just causes more problems.
I want to help you get your home under control for good!
You Can Get a Clean, Organized Home
The truth is, I came up with my cleaning checklists — along with most of the other household solutions you’ll find on my blog — because there are so many things I’d rather do than clean.
At the same time, I love having a clean, organized home!
So, I’m a firm believer in efficient homemaking. By “efficient,” I mean solutions that get it done right the first time. Like you, I don’t have the time or energy to try some “super easy” method that ultimately doesn’t work. That just means I’ve got to do the whole thing over again.
I don’t necessarily want the fastest solutions — I want the ones that will fix the problem for good!
Whether it’s treating mattress stains, getting my Keurig to work properly again, or cooking in bulk over the weekend to make weeknight dinners easier to prepare, I’m all about doing it right so I just have to do it once.
