Tips To Keeping Your Space Neat And Tidy

Keeping up with the daily house keeping can be a drag, but it doesn’t have to take up all your time. Keeping a clean home is less about the time involved, and more about creating some good habits that you eventually start to just follow instinctively. The more you do them, the easier it gets! If the tips below seem overwhelming to start with, just pick one or two to get started and then add in more as you are able.

Here are tips you can follow:

  • Make Your Bed In the Morning:

Some people think that making the bed is a waste of time, but it really makes a big difference in how tidy the room looks and only takes a couple of minutes.  Plus, it starts off the day well and you will love to  climb into a made bed at the end of the day.  

  • Put everything away after use:

This might seem like an obvious tip, but failing to put away your belongings is the main culprit of untidiness. As you move from one room to another, do a quick scan to see if there’s anything that you can take with you. Go out of your way to make sure that anything you wear, use or move ends up where it belongs. It’s easy to leave a pair of shoes near the front door, a few shirts on your bed and some dishes in the sink until tomorrow. Remember, those tiny piles can quickly turn into big messes.

  • Stick to a cleaning routine:

By sticking to a routine and dedicating some time to each space once a day, your home will always be clean and cleaning will never become overwhelming or get on top of you.

  • Declutter:

This one may need to be implemented over a longer period of time, but taking the time to declutter and organize your home will drastically cut down on the amount of time needed to clean.  Having a spot for everything {that is both easily accessible and easy to put away} makes it so much easier to tidy up – for both you and the rest of your family. Less items out on the counters and surface tops cuts down on dusting and makes cleaning a lot quicker. 

  • Get the Whole Family Involved:

Yes, it is often actually easier to just do the job yourself, but spending the time to teach your children to do age appropriate jobs will be better in the long run for both of you.  Start by just working on having your kids pick up after themselves – putting their coat and shoes away when they come in the house, putting dishes in the right place, cleaning their room, etc. – and add in other chores as able.  It’s amazing how much of a difference it can make in the overall tidiness of the house if just these simple things are done.  For the first few weeks that you do this, you will likely need to be on your kids a lot, but over time this will start to be a habit for them as well and it should eventually be able to be done with minimal reminders.

The biggest secret to keeping your house clean is to not procrastinate. When you do these little tasks throughout the day, your house is easier to keep clean and tidy. You don’t need any house tidying hacks, per se. These are all simple tasks that when done on a daily basis, add up to an immaculate house!
