Allison Schaaf highlights daily home routine tips inspired by Kim Brenneman’s book Home Management Plain and Simple. 

In episode 213, Prep Dish founder Allison Schaaf shares aspects of her daily home routine. She includes Kim’s daily house management recommendations along with what works in her own home, in her current season of family life.

In Kim’s home, Monday is dedicated to taking care of laundry.  Allison’s personal hack for laundry is having multiple washing machines in the house and batching all of her family’s clothes cleaning, drying, and putting away on the same day.  Tuesday is a kitchen day, where a batching practice (like meal prep!) comes in handy to prepare all of the meals for the week ahead.  Kim uses Wednesdays as her office day, and Allison notes that this time could be used for business as well as family schedule management.  

Thursdays are dedicated as town day, when running errands in town can be accomplished.  Like Kim, Allison lives in a rural area and batching errands, appointments, and meetings on one day of the week has become a useful approach to checking off important to-dos.  Home Management suggests Fridays as cleaning days, Saturday for gardening, and Sunday for the Lord’s day/day of rest to spend with family.  

Kim also approaches deep cleaning by dividing the month up into a five-week rotation.  Allison has adopted a similar approach in her home, but focuses on organizing each of the areas (dining room/bookshelves, bathroom & mudroom, bedrooms, living/family rooms, and play room) on a monthly rotation.
