Spring is in the air, and as we start to think about Spring cleaning, it might feel overwhelming to go all in and tackle all the house cleaning chores that may have built up.
So today we’ll be sharing a few simple tips to help with the process of getting and keeping your home sparkling clean.
Setting some time aside during your day will help you to not only stay on top of everything, but will help to also get into a routine – making it simple and a part of your day as time goes by.
We recommend telling yourself what you will be focusing on that day during your scheduled cleaning time because this helps you stay focused and on task.
Let’s face it, we all have clutter in one or more areas in our home right now. It’s a normal part of a busy life, but it doesn’t have to be.
A messy home can make the atmosphere feel chaotic and make it difficult to keep rooms clean.
Don’t worry. We have a technique that can help you.
Take two baskets and a trash bag into a room. In one basket, put dirty laundry, in the other basket put items that do not belong in the room, and then in the trash bag put your garbage.
After that’s finished, toss out the garbage, take the dirty laundry basket to where you do laundry, and then take the second basket and put the items away in their designated space.
When there is a place for everything in your home, it’s harder to have clutter.
We recommend investing in some baskets and bins.
Use these baskets for items like magazines, mail, toys, books, and even craft or office supplies.
Create a simple checklist at the beginning of every week for the chores for that week.
Break them down into days so that you know what you’re focusing on each day.
If you’re feeling unmotivated to finish your items on the list, turn on some of your favorite music and make it fun.
As your list continues to get smaller, you’ll feel more encouraged and determined to get it done.
“Doing the dishes” might seem like an obvious one because if you don’t do them, then you won’t have anything to eat off of, but this isn’t what we exactly meant.
Often, we go to bed with dishes still in the sink, causing us to get behind. If you make it a habit to finish up the dirty dishes and leave your sink clean before you go to bed, this not only helps you to start your day off right, but it helps you not to feel overwhelmed as you get deeper into each new day.
