Are you struggling to keep your house clean and tidy? You are definitely not alone. Most people, especially moms have admitted struggling in that department. The good news is there are some daily habits you can adopt that might help you keep your house clean and in order.
Make your bed properly every day
This may seem like a small gesture, but making your bed every morning makes a difference. And make sure to do it properly. You should be a good example to your kids if you want them to follow suit. You cannot teach your kids to make their beds, while you don’t make yours. Let the change start with you.
Do a load or two every day
It doesn’t matter the size of your household, try and do a load or two of laundry every single day. Doing laundry everyday might be exhausting, but if you want to keep your house neat, it should not be that difficult. It also ensures you don’t get overwhelmed with laundry pile.
Do the dishes every evening
Make sure the dishes are done every evening before you go to bed. If you are determined to keep the house in order, do not come up with excuses to skip doing the dishes even for a single day. If you have things like cooking pots that won’t fit in the dishwasher, wash them by hand. While doing the dishes don’t forget to clean up spills made on the countertops, table or stove.
Unload the dishwasher in the morning to avoid dirty dishes piling in the sink or countertop.
Put items back where they belong
Learn to put everything back once you’ve finished using them. It only takes a few second to put them back. Don’t be lazy. Get your family to follow this rule as well. Remember to always lead by example.
Teach your kids to clean up after themselves if they are old enough.
Organize mail every day
If you want your house to stay organized, manage your mail every day. Get rid of junk mail and keep the essentials like bills in the office.
Look for ways to reduce the amount of junk mail you receive daily. This will also reduce the amount of time you use to manage your mail.
