I love having a clean and organized home, and I secretly enjoy the process!
I know not everyone enjoys it so I came up with three simple but useful tips to help your home stay clean and organized without having to spend hours a day cleaning!
Don’t forget to put on some upbeat music while you clean! 😉
1) HAVE A CLEANING ROUTINE
Having a morning and night cleaning routine will keep your home tidy.
Take 15 to 30 minutes out of your day to clean in the morning and at night.
I will give you an example of my quick every day morning and night cleaning routine (this does not include deep cleaning).
- Make the bed (it takes about 2 minutes and makes a huge difference in the way you feel! Trust me!)
- Clean up the bedroom
- Clean the restroom
- Put dry dishes away
- Wash dishes
- Clean counter tops
- Clean dining table
- Clean up living room
- Clean my desk
(I’m sure I missed out some thing’s, but that’s okay, you get the point) 😉
Because of my night cleaning routine, I wake up to a clean home… which feels great!
The most important is to clean up after yourself throughout the day. It will help the dishes not pile up to the heavens, and it will save you time during your morning and night cleaning routine.
2) ORGANIZE FOR 5-15 MINUTES A DAY
If you take the time to organize even for just 5 to 15 minutes a day can make a huge impact to your home organization, and by the end of the week, you will have plenty of things organized.
- You can organize and clean out your purse or briefcase
- Your desk
- Makeup or Jewelry
- Mail or paperwork etc.
Even if you don’t finish some of them, it will still be more organized than it was before.
3) DEEP CLEAN YOUR HOME ONCE A WEEK
I don’t have any kids or pets so I deep clean at least once, maybe twice per week.
This will vary by each individual’s circumstances.
If you take the time to deep clean your home at least once a week, by the end of the month, you will have less to deep clean.
What also helps is to de-clutter your home once a week and get rid of stuff you don’t need or use anymore.
I didn’t get into every detail because this post would have been extremely long.
But I’m sure these three tips will help your home stay clean and organized!
Even though I love cleaning and organizing, my home is not always perfectly organized. Don’t overwhelm yourself wanting everything to be perfect, instead, do what best works for you and your home.
What do you do to keep your home clean and organized? Any tips?
