Minimize the Housework to Maximize Summer Vacation Time

Tagged with: · ·

When the kids are out of school, it is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time together as a family. But, many parents have a hard time during summer break because they feel like the housework requirements increase. When people are home throughout the day, then more effort is required for food prep, cleaning, and more.

Don’t spend your summer cleaning up the messes! Instead, it is time to lighten the load so that you can focus on the fun activities that should be shared with the people that you love. Here are a few tips to consider this summer:

Delegate, Delegate, Delegate

Teach your kids responsibility by assigning them chores around the house. Talk to them about how “many hands make light work.” Then, work together towards a common goal. For example, ask everyone to have their chores completed by a certain time so that the rest of the day can be spent at the water park together.

Meal Prep Once or Twice a Week

Most people associate meal prep with perfectly portioned chicken and broccoli in serving-size Tupperware containers. Instead, consider meal prep options for the entire family. Dedicating a few hours once or twice a week can reduce the overall time that you spend in the kitchen. Look for ways to multitask. For example, you can run the rice cooker, roast veggies in the oven, and cook chicken on the stove top simultaneously. Having a fridge full of leftovers will reduce the need to prepare a fancy meal every night. Plus, you will cut down on the daily work required for dish washing and kitchen cleanup.
