Most Important Household Items a Housewife Should Have


Being a housewife is hardly an easy task. There are certain tools every woman should have and implement in order to do the absolute best job possible. While not all of these items plug into a wall or have an "on" button; they remain indispensable to do day-to-day life of the everyday homemaker to assist with daily tasks of cooking, cleaning and performing necessary household duties.


  • A computer is a vital necessity in any modern household. Not only does having a computer allow a housewife to budget, plan and organize projects needing completion, but it also assists in bargain shopping online for household items. Computers are vital in creating a schedule. Moreover, just because a woman is a housewife, does not mean she has to be cut off from all facets of technology, making a computer a must-have item.

Cleaning Supplies

  • A housewife's primary responsibility is to maintain the household and make sure that her family is taken care of at all times. Cleaning supplies are indispensable to the modern-day housewife, as without them she is unable to complete her day-to-day duties in keeping the household clean. The types of cleaning supplies available to a housewife are vast in nature, and what she selects will often be as a direct result of her own personal preference experience in cleaning tips that she gleans from other housewives or by researching online.

Storage Bins

  • One bane of the modern-day housewife's existence is clutter. Storage bins come in handy to combat this problem, as they present a place to house a variety of household items. Similar to cleaning supplies, the storage bins a housewife selects are based on the amount of closet space she has throughout the home.

Kitchen Supplies

  • Part of being a housewife is being the family chef in most households. For this, a housewife requires a well-stocked kitchen full of standard cooking appliances such as a stove, toaster oven and microwave, and pots, pans and a dishwasher to help clean up. Housewives can also hone the craft of cooking using expert small appliances such as rice cookers, vegetable steamers and convection ovens.
