Every morning after an hour or so of being aired, I make the bed. This answers to my personal need for tidiness.
 
I do not allow dirty dishes to collect. As soon as the meal is over, either I wash them in the sink and rack them, or put them in the dishwasher. Guests don’t seem to mind helping with this task, and I am not later faced with dried-on dirty dishes.
 
The biggie is taking care of the clothes I take off. There are three places for them to go, folded and into a drawer, hung in the closet, or into the laundry basket. It has to be done eventually, why not now?
 
This passage from Adventist Home; has hung on my wall for years as my real aim in homemaking:
 
Pleasant voices,
Gentle manners,
and
Sincere affection
that finds expression in all the actions,
together with
Industry,
Neatness, and
Economy,
Make even a singlewide [like mine!] the happiest of homes.
