Happy Monday, Muse readers! It’s Hannah B. from Secrets of a Belle, and today I’d like to share the 2 books that are currently on my nightstand: Home Economics and Don’t Sing at the Table. Both feed my lifelong obsession with homemaking.
I am constantly thinking about how to live a more beautiful life and a big part of that, in my humble opinion, is keeping a beautiful home. But, in the words of Ferris Bueller, ‘Life moves pretty fast.’ So what’s a girl to do? Here are a few tricks that I’ve picked up.
1.) Set a schedule and get into a routine.
2.) Put the things that matter most to you at the top of your ToDo list. Are you a stickler for a clean bathroom? Do you have to have the dishes done before you go to bed? I am a pretty bad stacker (stacker of magazines, stacker of old mail, stacker of clean clothes), but when the dishes are clean, all is right with my world.
3.) Learn about the ‘old school’ way of doing things. How did your grandmother keep her kitchen clean and her furniture polished? Many times the old cleaning products and methods are not only cheaper but better for your home & health.
4.) Make (& keep) a budget. This one will change your life forever.
5.) Fill your home with music & flowers… and dance in the kitchen.
What about you? What’s your go-to tip for making a beautiful home for you & your loved ones?
Until next week, xo* ~Hannah B.
