I have learned that owning a home is a never ending process. Even if the day ever comes that we feel we have done everything, (and you know that will never happen), we still need to maintain the house and keep things in working order. You have to change the oil in a car. So, it is sort of the same thing with a house.
We have this check list on our frig. to help remind us of things that need to be done in order to keep our house in smooth drama-free working condition. This is a great list, and keeping it on the frig where we see it daily prevents us from forgetting to do something.
I also recently discovered Homespot. This website helps anyone track home information and also lets you know what you need to maintain and how often. It is sort of like one big online file folder for your home.
With the help of these two simple reminders, we know that no what, our home maintenance will stay organized and get done when it needs to. How about you. What do you have to help keep your home working smoothly?
