Creating the right mindset
First and foremost is to create the right mindset, that family comes first, in the end it is for them that you are going to do, whatever you plan to do in a day, this is step 1 to be the perfect homemaker.
Plan your daily or weekly schedule
Make a list of how you are going to go about daily activities like cooking, cleaning, shopping, gardening and also plan the weekly/monthly activities like taking the kids out on a trip, paying the utility bills.
If you are visiting relatives, try to stick to the plan as much as possible but never be too rigid. There are genuine instances where you have to make a few adjustments, so be flexible enough to accommodate these.
Organize the house
Kids can be messy at the best of times, throwing things or their toys here and there. Even the big grown man at home could be too lazy to stack his clothes or belongings properly.
Inculcate the disciple of organizing things in them, and when you first setup your home, assign places for everything, follow the plan yourself and make them follow it, but avoid nagging them about it.
Cleanliness and decorating
Keep the home clean and tidy and encourage each family member to be a part of this cleanliness. Also throw in a few items for decoration, but don't overdo it. You could have a small garden outside or a fish tank indoors.
Even though you may be busy whole day working for the family, don't forget to take some off time for yourself. Visit a good parlor, get a beauty treatment, try out a new hairstyle/ color and give your spouse a pleasant surprise.
Be optimistic and engaging
A husband likes his wife to be gentle yet strong; he wants her to be a part of the family decisions, have a positive outlook towards life, take initiative in doing things, or even take charge of the home during his absence.
Show him and your kids that you can be a strong woman - another important aspect of being a perfect home maker.
Learn some special recipes
