What is home keeping? Basically, it is making sue that your home is maintained and functioning efficiently. It might include managing family finances, scheduling appointments and other events, making sure your home is well stocked, and completing daily activities like food prep, cleaning, and laundry. It should also include regular maintenance on the interior and exterior of the home. It's a big job and should be shared by all members of the household.
