Do you feel like you’re constantly busy as a housewife and mother?? Me too! There seems to always be something that needs to be done! Since we’re in our new home, i’m trying to get into the groove of how things are going to go now that we’re here. I wanted to share some of the tasks that I have to do daily and some of the extras that I’ve done this week in my home as a homemaker and mom of 4
Mornings with a Frugal Housewife.
The first thing I do in the mornings after my husband leaves for work is walk around the yard, check on my plants and water them if they need it…this is just a few of the plants i’m growing right now…the pink tote is squash, the purple bucket is lettuce, and the small garden is watermelon and cantaloupe…I also have cucumber, tomatoes, zucchini, beans, bell pepper, and blueberries.
After I finish with my plants, shower and get dressed for the day. I will empty and refill the ice trays, we had an ice maker at our apartment so I didn’t need to do it then. Then I fix breakfast for the kids. Usually they have something quick for breakfast like waffles or pancakes from the freezer, but someone gave us a bunch of fresh chicken eggs and we got a bunch of sliced oranges from their school lunch pickup this week so I cooked them a nice little breakfast. (the eggs look a little burned, I cooked them in the same skillet after I cooked the bacon)
To save some money, my husband takes his lunch to work. So I made this bread this morning for his lunches! The sandwich loaf is for his work sandwiches and the other loaf I’ll slice and use for garlic bread for dinner.
Around 11 am on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, we go and pick up all of their sack lunches from school. This is my son holding the bag full of bag lunches that we picked up lol….
I make 2 gallons of sweet tea every day for us to drink. Just boil a pot of water, put 2 family size tea bags in, turn off heat and let sit for 10 minutes. Split the water between 2 pitchers. add 1 2/3 cups sugar to both pitchers. mix until sugar is dissolved and fill the pitchers to the top with water. Keep in the refrigerator.
There’s so much to a day….This is pretty much my morning, most mornings…of course there’s the laundry, and setting things out for dinner, and homeschooling the kids…but this is just a little peek inside this homemakers mornings.
How do you spend your days?
