Time management Tips for part time working housewife

Everyday routine has different demands, expectations, and priorities. All the women whether working or housewives have many duties to perform. We women manage the home and are responsible for a lot of things concerned with the home.

We, housewives, manage home chores as per our convenience. When I used to work full time, I do all the home chores on my own. After I quitting my job I was doing my home chores, but I  became a little lazy.

I created a daily, manageable routine which you could also do, it will help you to manage your time to become more productive. Being the mother of a toddler also increases responsibilities more. When I

didn’t have a baby, I feel like I have many hours in a day. But now I feel a shortage of time in a day. But after following a schedule I am able to manage my time in a productive way.

A woman who works outside, she earns. In the same way, a housewife who stays at home she is not earning but she is saving the expanses of a maid. But a Freelancer who stays at home to do all the activities of a housewife apart from that she earns.
