Managing the Home

Working women have to master the art of juggling in order to manage both work and home with ease. A proper planning will lead to a simpler life. Here are some smart tips, read on.

It is one thing to look after your children whilst at
work. But you also need to look after your home, mostly by remote control. That remote control in this case would probably be your telephone.

Proper Planning is Required

As mentioned earlier, you can solve most problems by planning. Plan ahead for stocking the house with all the necessities. Make limitless lists. We live in a wondrous age where we can reach out to any person (or for any product) on the telephone. Do ask for your groceries to be delivered, it will save you a trip to the stores.

Dealing with Visitors

You will also have a steady stream of telephone repairmen, cablewallas, plumbers and vegetable vendors arriving at your doorstep. You need them to time their visits to your convenience. For instance it is a good idea if these people are in and out of your house before the children come home. You also need to train the help in the house to deal with them. 

Dealing with Maids and Care Givers

It is wise to have capable, experienced help in the house, even though you will have to pay them more. You will also have to work at maintaining your relationship with your domestics and always keeping communication channels with them open. The more they are capable of handling what you delegate to them, the more time you will have for yourself. However, never give up supervising their work.

Taking Care of Guest and Parties

There are times when you will have dinner parties or house guests. Again, you need to plan on the weekends for your requirements ahead of time.  It is a good idea to make your masalas and pull out the party dishes over the weekend.  You also need to order the ingredients in advance.  You will not have too much time in the week.  Try and employ extra help in your home for just those days that you will have the extra work.  You could even hire a catering unit and skip cooking yourself.

In case of weddings and other functions in the family, you may need to go to your safety vault one weekend prior to the event.  Ironing and laundry services are now available at your doorstep.

With a little bit of foresight and a lot of planning you can manage your home even with a very hectic schedule.
