Daily habits checklist


Master Homemakers have a set of habits that keep life running smoothly, even if you work.

Setting up for a good day starts the night before. You want to start your day in the most positive way possible. That means walking into a clean bathroom, then strolling into your clean kitchen and pouring yourself a cup of coffee and sitting down to go over your plan for the day, including what’s for dinner.


Before Bed –

_____ Clean kitchen

_____ Picking up

_____ Write down anything you need to accomplish tomorrow

_____ Take something out of the freezer for dinner. Do you have everything you need?

_____ Wipe down bathroom

_____ Get yourself ready for the day before others get up

_____ Go over your plan for the day (dinner is planned, right?)

_____ Drink water

_____ Have a good breakfast

Notes –

Your nightly routine are the tasks that you do to set up a positive start to the next day – Picking up, cleaning the kitchen, wiping down the bath, setting up the coffee, and planning the next day – including a dinner plan.

If you’re running low on dinner motivation, visit the recipe section for hundreds of fast dinner ideas.

The housecleaning task comes from our cleaning course. We do one cleaning task each night so that we don’t have to spend our precious weekends doing house cleaning. Most of these tasks take less than half an hour.

Your bedtime routine is what you do to wind down and get ready for sleep. For me, that includes things like turn off computer, put phone on charger, take off makeup, take a warm shower (it relaxes me, and going to bed clean keeps the sheets cleaner), do some reading and praying, and drift off to sleep.

Getting ready for the day includes getting dressed, putting on makeup, stretching, etc. Even if you’re not going anywhere, if you’re put together – you’re ready for anything the day brings, and you will find you are in a better mood.

This checklist addresses domestic issues only. It assumes that you are working during the day.

This is not a written in stone schedule – it’s a guideline. You will tweak it to fit in with your lifestyle.
