Keeping Your Home Clean While Still Living in Your Space

by Jacqui Zuzgo 12/26/2021


 

These days, the home isn't just the place you go for relaxation at the end of a long day — it's the center of your universe. Whether you are working remotely or helping out with virtual learning, you may find your home gets messier quicker than anticipated.

Here are a few tips to help you clear the clutter while living in your central hub:

Create a Cleaning Schedule

There is no right or wrong way to schedule your cleaning, but it's important that you design a plan that works for you and your household. For instance, you may find it easier to take on one or two chores on a weekend day. Or, it might be better for you to do one chore each day throughout the week. No matter which schedule you choose, the most important thing is to stick to it. 

Designate a Spot for Your Stuff

The biggest way to keep clutter from accumilating is finding a home for all of your items and making sure they get there. Every item should have a designated section of your home. By keeping the designated sections clean and neat, you'll be able to tuck away the items you use daily with ease.

Tidy Up Every Evening

One of the best ways to keep your house looking and feeling clean is to tidy up every night. Take 15 or 20 minutes before heading to bed or starting your favorite TV show in the evening to clear the counters and put everything away that was used throughout the day.
