Simplify Life-Use Routines

Previous generations had some wisdom we can use today.

Did you ever hear your grandmother talk about “Wash Day”?

“Wash Day” is a term leftover from the time when women had the same daily tasks modern women have, but none of the help.  “Kitchenaid” didn’t exist and “whirlpool” was a natural phenomenon, not an appliance brand. In order to handle the enormous work load, women focused on one major task a day.

The same principle can be used today to organize life into manageable pieces. Focusing on one major project each day simplifies your life because you don’t start over every day with the same to do list.


Having a structure to your week enables you to focus on the task at hand and helps you to accomplish more. Thank goodness it no longer involves hand wringing the clothes!
