OK i know that too many housewives suffer from ...well EVERYTHING so i hope i helped


patience and concentration


1-Number One
You can't run a home that's a mess, so first of all you have to de-clutter it. If it's not beautiful, useful or seriously sentimental, it goes. Charity shop or bin - you decide!

2-Number Two
There's no getting away from it: you have to clean. People who say "oh, my house is a bit of a mess, but I'm really clean" are talking rubbish because you can't have a tidy house if it's not clean.

3-Number Three
Make the house into a home. Consider your house from an aesthetic point of view. Rearranging furniture, adding some candles, or making even small tweaks can really make the difference.

4-Number Four
Run a home like you would a small business and treat it with the same seriousness. If you're job-juggling, then it's obviously more difficult than if you're a full-time housewife/husband. If you are a housewife, take pride in that.

5-Number Five
Storage is important. Whether it's cushions you only use outside in the summer, or blankets that only come out in the winter, you've always got to think of where to store them. Try vacuum-packing to save space. Wicker baskets are marvellous for putting things in. If everybody knows where everything is kept you can avoid wasting time looking for things.

6-Number Six
Think about how you run your home. Could it be done more efficiently? In the series, one househusband keeps all his shoe-cleaning things in a lounge drawer but, of course, he cleans his shoes in the kitchen. Be practical.

7-Number Seven
It's also about team work. When children get to a certain age they can help by putting dirty washing in the right place and making their own beds. The first rule of management is delegation. Don't try and do everything yourself because you can't.

8-Number Eight
Don't use too many household cleaning products which are harmful to the environment. Try cleaning with vinegar, or just use one damp cloth swilled in cold water and one dry cloth. For cleaning windows and mirrors, you can't beat scrunched-up newspaper, dampened down with some white vinegar and water.

9-Number Nine
Avoid wastage. If you're cutting up a lemon, put the left-over half into the dishwasher. It adds a little ting and sparkle in your wash.

10-Number Ten
Domestic paperwork (bills, guarantees, insurance) is very important, so don't avoid it! A proper family diary with everyone's events and parties in it really helps organise the household.
