When we think of homemaking basics or homemaking hacks, we should not let HGTV or Pinterest or Martha Stewart be the standard or the ideal.
Homemaking is not about achieving a certain look or state in the home. Homemaking is a process, a service, of love through hospitality to those who live in and enter into our home.
In this episode I’m chatting with Virginia Lee Rogers, my customer support manager and fellow NTJ personality type about unconventional homemaking hacks. After all, our homemaking strategies should fit our own homes and needs, whether or not they look good enough for magazines or Pinterest.
Homemaking is personal, and no solutions or strategies for improving our homemaking should be superficial or one-size-fits-all. I hope we inspire you to look around your own home and come up with unconventional, personal, workable solutions.
Let’s dig in.
Virginia Lee Roger’s first homemaking hack:
Mystie’s homemaking hack: Realizing that vacuuming is preferable to sweeping, for a variety of reasons.
Virginia Lee’s other homemaking hack was to remove the legs from her couch so that nothing could be hidden or lurking underneath.
The cordless power-tool vacuum Mystie mentioned is the Makita, which she got off Amazon. It’s been going strong for nearly two years now.
