Until very recently, the running of a house had a very well-known rhythm. Wash on Monday, Iron on Tuesday, Bake on Wednesday, and so on was well-known enough to be embroidered on tea towels. But the days of women-only housekeeping are far over. That doesn’t mean that there is not a place for a routine, however. Look at your week and see if there are days when certain chores would make sense, and then stick to it.
