I have three things that I really want to share with you. These are things that I think will definitely make your homemaking job a lot easier. Here they are!
#1 Buy an Instant Read Digital Meat Thermometer
I’ve been making full meals since high school – but I’ve never mastered the art of perfectly cooked meat. Being afraid of under cooked meat, I either end up mangling the chicken breast or meatloaf as I try to decide if it’s done enough or I just over cook it.
Enter the digital meat thermometer. This one is similar to the one I use and takes all the guesswork out of cooking meat! I use it with chicken, pork chops, meatloaf, steak, and more.
#2 Make Your Dishwasher Work For You
When plastic-type things get mildewy or really dirty, I love to throw them in the top rack of my dishwasher and let the machine get them nice and clean for me. I don’t wash them with dishes – I run a separate load with just those items.
Things I’ve cleaned in the dishwasher:
- Dish Drainer
- Shower Organizers
- Bathroom Fan Cover – if you have one like this, it pops right off and comes out of the dishwasher looking brand new!
#3 Turn Overwhelming, Dreaded Chores into Smaller, Manageable Tasks
I found that having everyone change their sheets on Saturday resulted in a GIANT pile of laundry that filled the already small space in my laundry room. Instead, I decided to change the sheets on our bed on Friday and have everyone else change theirs on Saturday.
Taking care of my king sized sheets a day early made a big difference in the laundry and the number of beds I have to change in one day, since some of my kiddos need help with theirs.
If there’s a chore that you dread, see if there’s a way you can break it up to make it more manageable!

Buying one of those thermometers 😀😀👍👍
You won’t regret it!
Great advice! I do laundry all throughout the week to keep it manageable. I grocery shop during the week and avoid shopping on the weekends when everything is more crowded. Those little things add up!
Yes! I love being able to grab groceries after I drop the kiddos off at school. It’s so quiet in there!
